Credit cards, wire transfers, all of that currently requires giant office buildings that require lights, air conditioning, etc etc etc. By comparison, crypto is downright green.
The rest of your post is changing the subject, and I'm personally not interested in debating everything in the world with you.
cause you know the compute farms in multiple countries bitcoin requires are somehow any different?
Oh, of course, tiny little distributed operation?
even Etherium pos will still use more energy than credit card networks; it gets smoked by several other existing crypto.
Groundbreaking research by University College London has systematically assessed the energy consumptions of leading proof-of-stake networks and concluded not all PoS blockchains are created equal.
- Hedera – HBAR
- Tezos – XTZ
- Polkadot – DOT
- Cardano – ADA
- Algorand – ALGO
- Ethereum 2.0 – ETH 2.0
So, where exactly are we not making massive buildings with massive amounts of AC?
Each of our top two cryptos are some of the worst choices you can make (both bitcoin and ethereum suck at making anywhere near the transactions the cc networks make, and the entire crypto world would crash tomorrow without people turning maxed-out ccs into coin as "a great investment!"
