Tesla states that their carbon savings so far are 3,6 megatons: https://www.tesla.com/carbonimpact?redirect=no
The current carbon footprint of bitcoin is 36,95 megatons/year: https://digiconomist.net/bitcoin-energy-consumption/ (probably underestimated)
The price of bitcoin has risen 10% on the announcement of this news.
Bitcoin's economic model is set up so that a 10% increase in price will lead to roughly a ten percent increase in emissions.
So in one year, this price increase will wipe out ALL of Tesla's carbon savings.
I don't use #QGIS all that often but did a bit this week. Super great experience, installed the "Freehand raster georeferencer" plugin (http://gvellut.github.io/FreehandRasterGeoreferencer/) and did some stuff. So thank you to all the open-sorcerers who helped make that possible!
