Bitcoin Mining Poses Threat to Paris Climate-Change Accord

Recommended Posts

According to a study published in Energy Research & Social Science, John Truby, associate professor of law and director of the Center for Law & Development at Qatar University,  the Paris Agreement is under threat due to the growing energy consumption of mining cryptocurrencies. The process of “mining” cryptocurrencies is so energy intensive that it poses a threat to the global agreement to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
