Bitcoin & Energy: Lado Okhotnikov discusses energy aspects of cryptocurrencies with leading experts

Mining is a core blockchain process, but now miners are faced with severe energy problems. 

Сryptocurrency mining consumes significant electrical power. World mining requires the same electrical power as an average country. 

In some regions like Europe miners are losing money due to extremely high prices on local energy markets. 

High energy consumption means a significant load on the power system and, accordingly, serious pollution. Does the potential benefit of the new direction outweigh the harm done to nature?  

The discussion is led by world-class cryptocurrency experts.
