This is utterly mind blowing:
Bitcoin’s annual electricity consumption adds up to 45.8 TWh
The corresponding annual carbon emissions range from 22.0 to 22.9 MtCO2
This level sits between the levels produced by the nations of Jordan and Sri Lanka
Just to add more perspective, Switzerland consumes an average of 60 TWh. One day, we would look back to this nonsense and wonder whether it was really necessary.
