The emergent cryptocurrency economy is a waste-filled post-industrial do-nothing conglomeration. It is creating real damage to an already fragile environment. Is there any regulations for these electricity-wasting behemoths? (one Bitcoin transaction is equal to 750,000 Visa CC transactions in terms of electrical consumption) Why can’t they put their genius together and solve the plastic soup catastrophe slopping around the pacific ocean for example? Or could we suggest they put their chain-blocking, number-crunching computers together and tell us when we are going to run out of clean air and freshwater, it’s not that far away… from today!
