30 gedachten over “How Cryptocurrency Mining Impacts The Environment”

  1. Holy fake news Batman…..🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️

  2. consumes energy just like all 5 of Obama's homes and 4 Pelosi homes or Bill Gates 50,000 sq ft home in redmond.

  3. Best cash your saving out and get it into alt coins before the dollars is worthless. You folks have been warned.

  4. Agh, shut up 🤐. Printing money has a lot bigger negative impact on this planet and all the species than King of modern monetary system BTC has. Why don’t we talk about bank servers or printers, paper, ink, electricity, people and lots of other energy that takes to making fiat money and infinite supply of it. So shut your holes with misinformation.🤣

  5. Mrs Clarissa is legit and her method works like magic I keep on earning every single week with her new strategy

  6. I'm so excited for recommending you no one really does it better than you kudos to your work keep it moving sir you are worthy and trustworthy💯

  7. I'm so excited for recommending you no one really does it better than you kudos to your work keep it moving sir you are worthy and trustworthy💯

  8. Why do this anti Crypto fake news, spread fear, channel keep popping up on my timeline? Smh. Smoking Kills… Do a story on that and why the Government allows that, but want to stop the POOR from getting rich off of Bitcoins. 🤔


  10. Amelia really knows her way around metaverse stock and cryptocurrency trading, it’s evident from her deep knowledge of how the market works, reading signals to perfection, I feel very safe trading with her after she showed me how I could earn huge daily from other crypto coins that are very cheap, it’s simply to reach her through her details above,

  11. My goodness, YouTube has to do something about these scammers that pop up in the comments of every crypto related video. At least address the issue and tell people to report it when they see it.

  12. Bitcoin helps the planet by using wasted energy, and more importantly is an incentive to generate massive amounts of green energy all around the world. This narrative your pushing is coming from the banking industry. But eventually Bitcoin will overtake the central banks because it's a superior asset and in the process process will create lots of clean energy.

  13. People and countries fight to be leaders in this industry but what's the cost? Our planet. Mining crpto drinks a LOT of electricity and ultimately produces a more carbon footprint. This might seem like a money idea but after we've hurt the planet, we will starve for food and green. So then do you think our latest technology can help us?

  14. It does impacts the environment and the people are aware of this hence some platforms are building on different solutions for climate action. Just like in carb0nfi, they will reward users that would offset their carbon footprints. Its a win-win on all sides.

  15. “ transactions can be harder to trace”. The opposite is true, it’s more transparent than FIAT currency.

  16. Now all the sudden you care about environment when new empire threatens your existence.

  17. Anyone who talks about crypto being bad for the environment is either ignorant or deliberately misleading

  18. Maybe create machines for those that have actual silent fans. This issue wouldn't be a problem if they never make a noise causing disruption for people. Especially once with super hearing.
