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? https://diginomica.com/bitcoins-damage-planet-coal-powered-chinese-phenomenon-uses-more-electricity-whole-argentina#:~:text=According%20to%20CBECI%2C%20Bitcoin%20mining,league%20of%20consumers)%20122.2%20TWh.
