This piece is a bit dated (it was published in 2019) but I think it encapsulates the pros and cons of utilities engaging with cryptocurrency miners well. With rising prices and mainstream attention, demand for cryptocurrencies (and electricity from cryptocurrency miners) should increase in the coming years. It is up to utilities to work out the nuances of engagement with crypto miners and turn them into important contributors to their bottom line.
