It is? Do you have proof? Everything I’ve read is fake news. Is it morally irresponsible to support the global fiat experiment that consistently keeps the poor, poor? What about the environmental impact of Visa, MasterCard, or AWS? I’m assuming you don’t support them?

I value your opinion but this is a tit for tat argument especially when it comes to morality. If one lives Beyond Good and Evil then the moral issue dissolves.

Ok let’s ignore that 70% of BTC mining uses renewables. Serious question; do you go around screaming at people who have Christmas lights, or watch The Kardashians for wasting electricity? If not, where do you draw the line and who becomes the arbiter of how people use energy?
