Eco-conscious cloud mining operation Genesis Mining has launched a tongue in cheek nationwide media campaign to promote Bitcoin, loosely titled: "15 Times Experts Were Dead Wrong About Technology".

Marco Streng, CEO and co-founder of Genesis Mining told IBTimes: "A big part of the campaign is focused on showing people that experts aren't always right about technology. They often have ridiculous predictions that turn out wrong.

Take this example from Western Union: "This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication" - Western Union internal memo, 1876.

The campaign includes billboards, taxis ads and spinner signs across Southern Florida, San Francisco, LA, DC, Chicago and Boston.

Genesis offers any individual the chance to join a mining pool, with operations based in Iceland tapping into natural and sustainable geothermal and hydro-generated electricity.
