Bitcoin Miners Are Dung Beetles Of Energy – Bitcoin Magazine

This is an opinion editorial by Robert Warren, partner at Distributed Hash and business development at Upstream Data Inc.

The layperson knows only one thing about Bitcoin mining — it uses a lot of energy, and that is bad.

This mind-virus, successfully spread by the climate extremists and anti-Bitcoin street corner preachers (typically carrying a proof-of-stake torch) is intended to be the death knell of our burgeoning industry. We use a lot of energy, and using energy is obviously a terrible thing. It follows that we should be scorned, pursued and regulated out of existence.
