Kratos Mining's Vision

Redefining Finance for a Digital Future

In the world of traditional finance, customer service and user experience in mobile and web-based platforms have often fallen short, leaving room for groundbreaking transformations powered by digital technologies.

Moreover, central banks have increasingly resorted to money printing through quantitative easing, a move that erodes the purchasing power of global fiat currencies, inflates asset valuations beyond their true worth, and widens the wealth gap across the globe. At Kratos, we see blockchain-based technologies as a powerful tool to address this growing inequality through digital transformation.

The initial phase of this transformation has given rise to blockchain-based digital assets. We envision the next phase as the construction of bridges that connect decentralized finance (DeFi) with traditional finance, enhancing customer service and user experience in the latter. In the final phase, a transformation set to unfold over the next two decades, we anticipate a fully decentralized banking system where transactions occur peer-to-peer on blockchain networks.

Kratos Mining stands at the forefront of this financial evolution, committed to bridging the gap between the existing financial world and the possibilities of blockchain technology. Join us in reshaping the future of finance for greater inclusion and efficiency.

Kratos ESG

Environmental, Social, Governance
Environmental

Pioneering Carbon Neutrality

At Kratos, we're on a mission to decarbonize our operations by reducing scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, ultimately striving for 100% carbon neutrality. While our mining operations produce zero emissions, we're dedicated to powering our Bitcoin miners with sustainable, non-carbon emitting sources, including wind, solar, hydro, nuclear, and biofuel. To reach our goals and promote renewable energy in the United States, we position our Bitcoin miners behind the meter, right at the source of power generation.

Social

Empowering Financial Inclusion and Community Support

We're not just in the business of mining; we support the Bitcoin network, which fosters financial inclusion and empowers economic freedom globally. By sustainably increasing the computational power ("hash rate") that secures Bitcoin, we contribute to making it the world's most decentralized and secure monetary network. In times of crisis, we voluntarily redirect excess power from our Bitcoin miners to critical businesses and infrastructure in our local communities. We also actively support Bitcoin developers, builders, and advocates.

Governance

Transparency, Accountability, and Performance

Our governance structure ensures unwavering commitment to our core principles, informed decision-making, effective performance monitoring, and compliance. Transparency and accountability are woven into the fabric of our company at every level. As operators of our own mining pool, you can track our real-time performance, from the blocks we mine to the Bitcoin we earn, providing insight into our operations.

Peter Mcindoe

Advisory Board Member
Peter McIndoe

Peter McIndoe is a performance artist, filmmaker, and co-founder of the “Birds Aren’t Real” movement, a satirical conspiracy theory positing that all birds are robots. The movement has amassed millions of followers on social media, and hundreds of official chapters have popped up at colleges all across the nation. Peter embodied a conspiracy theorist character by way of Andy Kaufman to rally a community around the absurdity, speaking to the media and presenting himself in-character. When he finally came out of character in December of 2021, it was covered on the front page of the New York Times. Currently, Peter lives his public life both in and out of the act. Since coming out of character he’s been featured on 60 Minutes, Howard Stern, and the front page of The Guardian, in addition to being the subject of a VICE documentary. The satire is still alive and well though, as Peter remains in-character on local news interviews and on social media. He currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
