In the upcoming videos, I will try to debunk the narrative that Bitcoin is bad for the environment. Why? Unfortunately, many financial influencers with a lot of following, mainstream media but also politicians are citing and using the dishonest thesis of Alex de Vries aka. Digiconomist.
I think it's important to share my view in a condensed way and reshare great articles & opinions of leading figures in the Bitcoin space but also from people outside of the Bitcoin space but with expertise in the Energy market. By doing that I hope I can give you the tools to debunk the Energy FUD and to show you why Bitcoin isn't bad for the environment.
In today's video we will discuss: Is Bitcoin bad for the environment? - Annualized Total Bitcoin Footprints
