Cryptocurrencies are as trendy as electrical cars. It should not come as a surprise that people now think about the possibility to use the car to mine cryptocurrency. It is mostly about abusing the electricity plan (for instance free plugs in Paris could do), but what is quite funny (or sad, depending) is that now, we’re getting some self-righteous anti-diesel anti-piston engine crowd considering to contribute to one of the worth energetical waste of the period. More or less in 2017 the consumption of a country like Slovakia, just burned, not producing anything but unneccessary heat, just to make a logical proof that some transactions are legit.
So, yeah, cryptocurrencies are fun in principle. Yeah, surely we should expand electrical engine territory. Still, the idea that both could be promoted by the same crowd is kind of a joke. Can you be a so-called hard core environmentalist when you burn energy just because?
