Jay Jorgensen GeoBitmine CEO

Jay has an extensive background in global project management with multiple Fortune 100 companies. With experience in the cyber security market, he has a vast understanding of Zero Trust Architecture and End Point Management.
Jay was an early adopter of Cryptocurrency. He understood the market trends and their behaviors. This passion led Jay to start a Bitcoin Operation. While researching, he discovered what was another case of ‘the Rich getting Richer.’ The cost of entry to start mining Bitcoin was far to high for any regular person to competitively enter.
If a middle-class guy, like Jay, wanted to start mining, there had to be an edge different from everyone else. ‘The Solutions are often found in the Problem.’ Jay wanted to change the narrative of Bitcoin Mining in being a massive consumer of energy resources and still maintain profitability. This is where GeoBitmine was born.
“Einstein E=mc2. The secret the equation revealed—that mass and energy are different forms of the same thing—had eluded scientists for centuries.”
With this famous equation in mind, Jay discovered that the existing model of mining Bitcoin was upside down. While aiming to flip the model, Jay was Invited to Dubai as a leader in innovation to speak in front of some of the world’s brightest leaders in A.I., Tech, Philanthropy, and Royalty. With hopes that the world could see his vision and help to serve people first, he was awestruck and humbled to be received so well.
With a goal of preservation while maintaining profitability, GeoBitmine launches mining sites Globally and hope to soon be the world’s leader in energy stabilization and Bitcoin Mining.
Energy cannot be created or eliminated, it’s simply transferred from one form to another.
This law is where Geobitmine set out to be the energy stabilizing model that exists today. Things are just getting started. The prefix “Geo” thermal is in the name GeoBitmine with conscious effort and GeoBitmine will be revolutionary with our patent pending model for mining!
“Where Innovation And Disruption Meets Profitability”

Merissa is a California native who grew up passionate about protecting the natural world. On her path to becoming a well-rounded climate activist, Merissa got her undergraduate degree in Environmental Resources Engineering and joined a Geography Ph.D. program to study Atmospheric and Climate sciences. Disheartened by the global situation regarding climate change and the uncertainty it brings to resource management, Merissa is passionate about getting her own homestead and developing resilient food, water, and energy sources for her family. Merissa discovered Bitcoin first as an investment vehicle but soon realized this is a global socio-climate rebellion she wants to be a part of. Merissa loves the sciences and research, but she was craving a more action-orientated role in the fight for climate justice. Discouraged by the path and roles her Ph.D. would get her and inspired by the pro-human rights and pro-climate projects in Bitcoin, Merissa mastered out of her Ph.D. to join the Bitcoin industry. Merissa is eager to educate the public on the beneficial force the Bitcoin monetary network is bringing to the fight for climate justice. Thus far in the industry, Merissa is using her technical background in Engineering and climate sciences to help Bitcoin mining companies understand climate issues and their companies’ impact on the climate. GeoBitmine’s project aligns with Merissa’s values of developing more resilient and decentralized food systems that empower local communities and she is excited to be a part of the team.
