One year after the adoption of Bitcoin as an official currency, the town of Chalatenango in the north of El Salvador will host the first private, solar powered bitcoin mining farm in the Central American nation.

The funding comes via a Swiss consortium working with Salvadorian Josué López, who is originally from the town, and has chosen to invest in his home nation.

Milena Mayorga, the El Salvadorian ambassador to the United States, attended the occasion and revealed on Twitter that the renewable energy park's initial investment is $4 million, despite the fact that it is anticipated that the first stage will cost USD 15 million.
