Free idea to anyone owning crypto:
Sell it and donate the money to orgs fighting against climate change.
And stop buying crypto, ffs.
> As even the technical definition is rather fuzzy, in reality, it's often synonymous with whatever economic woo its promoter is hyping. Sound money is often a cover for gold buggery, and lately bitcoin fanaticism, though it can mean whatever the hell the bullshit purveyor wants it to mean.
Nobody was talking about NGO. You can also donate (or invest if you're in for the speculation and potential upside) to a solar or wind energy project in your region.
Literally everything is better than keeping Bitcoin, because doing so means contributing to significant CO2 emissions.
Importantly, how much #overconsumption is spurred on by the fact that inflation in the money supply destroys savings? We're forced to pump stonks in largely consumer-based industries, or energy and resources into building emptyHomes to increase in value, because govts stopped including housePrices in inflation stats (and give tax breaks to propertyOwners).
Fiat is rigged to kill the ecology.
Gold is not bitcoin. Its easily confiscatable, difficult to transport, abusive to mine.
Bitcoin is designed to reduce our footprint in future. Watch when saving is appreciated again. It only needs to use as much energy as needed to resist 51% attacks. So in some ways the sooner we adopt it as a reserve layer, the less damage.
Finally its partly govts printing money that causes the price of BTC to rise and thus govs are partly to blame for the environmental impact.
