Bitcoin mining just hit an all time high again.
What people often critizize about BTC is the amount of energy wasted. But what people dont understand is that BTC price and difficulty are not related:
-> if you want less energy wasted make power more expensive
-> more expensive power (worldwide) would lover overall hashes per second and thus lower the difficulty and so lower the energy spent on mining
-> the price of bitcoin can do whatever it wants while politics act
In general its insane to see a unit like EXAhashes/per SECOND ....for a technical person like me (non IT) I would be sure to have miscalculated something if my result is in this dimension.
10^18 / s just doesnt seem right
