world’s most sustainable asset classes for all institutional investors.

Build a greener
portfolio

The Sustainable Bitcoin Protocol is a scalable international protocol that verifies bitcoin mined with renewable or clean energy sources—so institutional investors under ESG mandates can invest in bitcoin with peace of mind.

Discover how the protocol works

Step 1

Mine powered by renewable energy applies to the Sustainable Bitcoin Protocol (SBP) for certification
Step 2

SBS adds the miner to the Verified Green Miner registry and mints the miner one Sustainable Bitcoin Certificate (SBC) for every bitcoin they mine
Step 3

Green miners can sell bitcoin and SBCs to institutional investors, but the two asset classes are not inextricably linked
Step 4

Institutional investors under ESG mandates can make verifiable sustainability claims for their bitcoin holdings when coupled with SBCs
