Thank you, Duuude! Excellent piece, as always. Bitcoin is such a mystery, even after reading everything I can get my hands on. I mean, it doesn't even really exist in tangible form. One thing is not a mystery, though: its power consumption, which exceeds that of entire countries. It's absolutely not sustainable in any sense. Maybe a piece on this in your future?,league%20of%20consumers)%20122.2%20TWh.
