The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, May 9, with a presentation by Matt Vincent titled An Introduction to CryptoWatt. Vincent will give a brief project overview to date of the company’s headquarters and cryptocurrency mining facility at the former MSE Mike Mansfield Advanced Technology Center site. CryptoWatt purchased the former MSE site in January and brought on its first 3 megawatts of cryptocurrency mining capacity in March. Site construction continues with additional power and machines coming online soon. Over 100 workers are currently employed in developing the site, with 50 or more long-term employees expected once construction is complete.
Matt Vincent is a Butte native and the former Chief Executive of Butte-Silver Bow City-County. He joined CryptoWatt in December 2017 and serves as their chief communications officer and spokesperson.
The presentation will begin at noon and run about an hour at the Archives, 17 W. Quartz. Guests are encouraged to bring a sack lunch. Coffee and water will be provided.
Brown Bag Lunches are held the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month. Upcoming lectures will focus on topics of local interest. For more information, contact the Archives at 782-3280.
