Unlock Nepal Hydropower

For Environmentally and Socially Responsible Mining

What is BNA?

The mission of BNA is to create an environmentally and socially responsible crypto currency mining business model by unlocking Nepal’s huge hydropower potential. Revenue generated from hydropower plants will be re-invested in mining facilities which will be the source of profit/return for BNA token holders.
A certain percentage of revenues will also be allocated to donations for philanthropic purposes in Nepal.

Nepal’s untapped huge hydropower potential

Nepal’s theoretical hydropower potential is one of the highest in the world estimated to be roughly 84,000 MW, of which 43,000 MW has be identified as economically feasible.

However, only 600 – 700 MW has been developed so far.

If this potentiality is fully exploited and sold at an average rate of six cents per kWh, the resulting revenue generated will be roughly 11.5 billion USD per annum

The future of Crypto Currency Mining

Taking advantage of Nepal’s plentiful hydropower resources will enable environmentally friendly and at the same time cost efficient mining.

By deploying mining hardware adjacent to the hydropower plants located in the mountain areas, there will be no need for active cooling, a major cost for mining operations.

Helping developing countries via cryptocurrencies

BNA will be donating a certain percentage of revenue generated from hydropower and mining projects to philanthropic purposes in Nepal such as education, health, roads and local development.

Funds will be sent directly to people in need rather than traditional foreign aid which money only reaches bureaucrats, local leaders and corrupt officials.

The Team

BNA will be driven by Bhaban Bhatta, Chairman of TBi Group and one of Nepal’s top business leaders. Bhaban has been a part of various reputable national and international organizations and projects.

TBi (Total Business Institute) Nepal is a corporate conglomerate which holds roughly 30 companies under its umbrella in sectors such as hotels, food and beverages, aviation, media and hydropower projects.
