My kink is watching tech bros get annoyed when you keep reminding them bitcoin is ecologically unsound.


...a huge portion of Bitcoin mining is performed using excess renewable electricity which would otherwise go to waste.

@jez which doesn't nullify the ecological impact of the global bitcoin market that's driving an increase in power consumption that's from non-renewable sources


Fiat currency also uses nonrenewable materials: fossil fuels for energy, metals for coins, metals for fraud protection, etc.

@jez Quite. Efforts should be looking to move in the other direction wholesale, rather than increase the problem at a time when it's clear the planet is undergoing catastrophic changes as a result of these things already


Indeed! Hmmm.... Has anyone ever made a hashing algorithm that helps process weather prediction data? 🤔🤔🤔🤔



I just discovered EcoCoin but I don't know how to feel about it...
