Blockstream began operating its 270 MW facility in 2019. It employs a colocation model with prominent customers such as Fidelity Center for Applied Technology and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman using the facility to mine cryptocurrency.[1] The facility sources its power from the city of Adel as the municipal government also serves as a utility provider.[2]

Since the small city uses approximately 24 megawatts of power, the substantial capacity of the facility has drawn criticism from the environmental groups as well as prominent individuals in the cryptomining space.[3][4] The operation has also drawn the ire of the citizens who have voiced complaints about loud, disruptive noises coming from the facility.
