#Bitcoin must die

BRUH.

If Bitcoin were to cease trading tomorrow, 0.5% of the world’s electricity demand would simply disappear. This is roughly equivalent to the output of ten coal-fired power plants, emitting 50 million tonnes of CO2 per year – which would cover one year’s worth of the carbon emission cuts required to limit temperature rises this century to 2C.

Btc clearly must go if it's eating that much. Have you looked at faircoin? That claim to use way less energy by choosing not to be completely 'trustless'.
