Bitcoin uses more energy than some countries

While we are urging actions for controlling climate changes, here’s an industry that is causing leaks to those efforts – Bitcoin.

Besides the energy used by the computers that do the mining, there is the need to power up cooling systems to cool these computers from the heat they generate. Perhaps there is a need for some regulation before it becomes another climate disaster.
