Do you own any Bitcoin?
If this is not humor please explain.
So, when computers process data it's called mining?
Obviously computers use electricity.
Is the generation of electricity the source of the carbon emissions you speak of?
Or is it something else?
My husband has a really powerful computer for sim racing and vr gaming. When he's not gaming, it runs bitcoin mining. @HS4S_2 is not wrong about the carbon footprint. It's not good. But it's his hobby. And the mining has paid for the $$$ computer, and is on the way to paying for the $$$ racing rig.
My father has put in $2k and is currently sitting at over $7k, he needs new parts for his boat and I told him to sell some of it to finance the parts he needs. His response?
"No it's an investment, would I be able to borrow some money off you if I am short for the new transducer?"
