@lexluthermiester thoughts?

@R-T-B I'm sure you will still defend it... but yeah... you have to admit, its sad, as humans we were capable of so much, yet at end of day so little...

Hi,
Do people really buy 3090's to game ?
Seems I read 2060's are most popular

you are taking small detail out of context. it applies to all gpu's that are used to mine anything, the 3090 is just a base number crunch example...

Hi,

2060s are popular because A.) they are relatively inexpensive and B.) they have been around for a while.

Similarly that's why there are more 5-year-old Honda Civics on the road than the latest Lamborghini or Aston-Martin.

Recent Steam hardware surveys will show that some people are actually gaming on 3090s. The most popular cards will all be the models on the lower end of the price scale.

This isn't specific to graphics cards. This is pretty much the same concerning anything manufactured by human beings.

Hi,

Read the article. The author acknowledges that there have been many analyses concerning electricity use by cryptocurrency miners but his article was focusing on e-waste.

The title is not clickbait if you actually read the article.

I read it earlier, I think one group saying that they proved this to be a stretch untested so not worth too much weight ATM.

And I would prefer such analysis to be done verses a cash alternative.

So it's not realistic.

Though I do think it has some merit, they are burning through ASIC chip generations, but so are all the bank backend.

Plus bitcoin + some future innovated adjustment could lessen the impact.

I'm confident none of it will matter within 5 years. With western canada hitting 125 faren this summer and killing millions of clams/mussels, it is clear to me we are already to late. Will be interesting to see how Americans handle the incoming 130 degree summers in every single state.

Yes crypto is super inefficient... but this just feels like one of those shifting blame away from the fact that big businesses cause more harm to the environment with their practices than joe schmo crypto mining or betty using plastic bags at the grocery store.

Is this the place for that.

Come on, they're are threads for that.


Sorry baffled brain kicked in there, wrong thread for that.

Bit dramatic, I mean you don't think the earth couldn't rip us all to piece's at any point in time anyway, they're are a great many black holes wandering around our galaxy.

I think the electrification (as I refer to it) will be swift but we'll see.

As for climate dramma, I think a good look through history brings that into perspective.

I consider it as hard to make everyone happy, housed, engaged in life yet net zero carbon.

As it would be to heard all the Ants of the world through the arc de triumph.

Not cheary, but real.


Also , why is it always just Bitcoin, if you're going to shout save the world you should be realistic about it, it's not Just bitcoin is it?!.

This isn't evidence of earth damage in any form. It's evidence of high bitcoin fees, which has been known for like forever. Bitcoin is a high value instrument, it's fees are high and have always been high as it's only used for high value transactions that require high security.

Doing transactions in anything incredibly valuable like that tends to confer heavy fees... at least when doing it digitally.

Seems about right. Takes a ton of compute from many, many systems to confirm/verify a transaction.
This is about fees, not compute complexity. This whole article has nothing to do with bitcoins legitimate problems. The OP is coupling two unrelated issues.

I believe certain land masses, animals aren't meant to exist forever.
Well there goes like 1/3rd of the population the way things are going... You really can't be ok with that within reason.

But bitcoin is not the cause of that. It's not even a minor influencer at this point.

You must have never taking a logic 101 course in college. A) lots of problems need to be fixed quickly B) adding a new problem to that list of problems does not equate to its defense for existence C) items under A have actively been improving at a rapid pace, LED light bulbs, reusable bags, more people using reusable water bottles, etc.

Defense of B) adding to something that already needed fixed within a certain time frame for human survival is a really weak argument. get skill bois

Is this the place for that.

if you read the article (apparently you didn't... lol) the author of that article mentions... all crypto needs to go, specifically Ethereum, but the author does mention all crypto as well needs to go... nice job reading the article.

you are right, I should just give up on everything that is in my control because aliens could land tomorrow and impregnate me and I could be on Saturn's moons tomorrow! amazing logic with the black hole stuff, well done mate.

I believe certain land masses, animals aren't meant to exist forever.

have fun with with that logic. you do know the entire world is interconnected right? the amazon rain forest gives rain to Africa yearly at around same time to, and that allows that entire ecosystem there to thrive... its more interconnected than you can possibly imagine. but yes, you are correct in a way, if humans can't figure out long term sustainability by using their gift of logic and reason, our species too will go and turn to dust, and a better one will replace it. probably for the best really.

high bitcoin fees + high compute needed + wasting limited resources on it.... article seems to explain it fine to me.

I didn't? His claim: shifting blame from crypto to big business who also pollute...

My response: it's true big business pollutes, then I provided evidence for some examples of how big business is improving, and adding fuel to the fire so to speak is no defense within logic for creating more waste/pollution.

Shib seems to have the right idea, but I think he misunderstands big business has been getting better over time, there are many examples. Adding a new problem to climate change isn't helping matters.

How is that not responding and addressing his question directly? Please enlighten me.

Are two seperate and unrelated issues. That's the problem.

it's true big business pollutes, then I provided evidence for some examples of how big business is improving, and adding fuel to the fire so to speak is no defense within logic for creating more waste/pollution.
I've in the past provided evidence crypto is improving too, but you've selectively ignored it. Nevermind the fact big industry overwhelmingly is a worse contributor than crypto. Crypto is best viewed as simply a new industry, and it isn't one that is doing any worse than average.

Vaccines killing populace, india is still riddled as well...
Vaccines aren't killing anyone. Please keep conspiracy nonsense out of here.

have fun with with that logic. you do know the entire world is interconnected right? the amazon rain forest gives rain to Africa yearly at around same time to, and that allows that entire ecosystem there to thrive... its more interconnected than you can possibly imagine. but yes, you are correct in a way, if humans can't figure out long term sustainability by using their gift of logic and reason, our species too will go and turn to dust, and a better one will replace it. probably for the best really.
You deserve a like for this, though. Anyone who thinks we can just "lose" habitable zones and go on as we have is dead wrong.
