I just recently realised, that proprietary social networks are not social networks but entertainment networks. That's why at least my friends have a hard time switching to mastodon or pixelfed. People expect to be highly entertained the first second they enter the network and kept that way all the time. Being confronted with a network that is stripped from all these addictive tools is a massive cultural clash.
First day with a Pi Zero! Got a little screen and found someone's repo (https://github.com/sar02/crypto-watcher) to push images to it.
Looking forward to customizing that display. It's good practice with ssh for me
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.
