Canadian actor William Shatner, known for his role in Star Trek, has become the latest personality to show interest in the crypto sector.

William Shatner is known for his role as Captain Kirk in the legendary Star Trek movie series. He has become a promoter of the Solar Alliance, an energy organization that plans to set up a Bitcoin mining center in Illinois, according to Chicago Tribune. The Canadian company will use an existing building in Murphysboro to install a solar panel array.

“The concept is so, I guess the word is bizarre. You have to blank your mind and say, ‘What is blockchain, again? How does mining operate, again?’ The concepts are really strange, and yet when you begin to grasp it, it makes sense,” Shatner told Chicago Tribune.

The alliance doesn’t intend to mine Bitcoin

Note that the final intention of the Solar Alliance isn’t actually to mine Bitcoins. The organization’s plan is to rent the mining center to specialized firms after it’s properly equipped. It hasn’t revealed a certain date when the project will be completed, however, chief executive confirmed for Chicago Tribune that will start looking for customers by the end of 2018.

Jason Bak, CEO of Solar Alliance, intends to allocate part of the center to establish an informational enterprise in order to explain how solar panels should be installed.
The Star Trek legend told Chicago Tribune he would visit the completed mining center, because “it’s an interesting idea to see it at work because … it’s so esoteric that it’s difficult to understand.”
