The ONLY valid defense of the needless ecological disaster that is Bitcoin and proof of work mining is “I have a vested interest in it.”
Anything else is bullshit.
At least be honest about it, you cunts.
I've often daydreamed about gathering a resistance of people and computers that would create a fork of bitcoin with no mining, all "miners" would assign new blocks into the void ⚫.
I don't mind it (so much) that Bitcoin is a ponzi scheme cesspool–but the climate thing gets my goat 🐐
