Wow.   That's startling.   Lead me to read other articles on this, one of which said "researchers at the University of New Mexico has put a price on that pollution, estimatingin a paper that every dollar of bitcoin value mined accounts for 49 cents' worth of health and climate damage in the U.S".   That sounds unsustainable to me.

    yes I read that mining Bitcoin collectively uses as much energy as the entire country of New Zealand, and for what? it's very wasteful uses a lot of energy. The green party should hate Bitcoin, but many of them are big believers in it and have positions so contradictory
