@sotolf yeah people will just put the environment before profits without being forced to. that's been tried, just look around, talking about fuck the earth.. :facepalm:
@sotolf I don't really see the point of this, I mean, is not up to bitcoin to be green. Is up to governments to implement rules on industries that create pollution or not. This situation should be improved but possible will be a reason to eradicate the benefits of the technology other than to have another motive to improve the state of things, mainly how energy is produced. And articles like this say clearly that the pressure should be on technology other than in govs to create positive change.
#tutanota might have the worst support I ever seen.
Takes weeks and weeks to exchange a couple emails with support, situation still not solved and still no info on how to solve it.
I'm glad I'm on my way out 🤬
@bkhan While I can see that the "big 3" are wasteful I also understand that money based on gold also comes with environment cost and money based on nothing but numbers on a screen and printed papers are as ponzi scheme as its possible to be. But any of this is going away so I would rather support cleaner forms of energy production for it and keep the benefits than say its all bad and must be stopped, because that's silly, is only serving what govs/bakers want and its listening to propaganda.
@sotolf You're doing the "most people", " big 3" argument. But you know that means nothing. Call them by their names.
@sotolf I don't want to argue, I'm just pointing out that not everything is bitcoin or the "big 3". Your generalization is what's silly about this. BTW, I don't own any of the "big 3" and I agree with you about it but I don't put everything is the same bag.
@sotolf Windows is big too, we know is trash but people keep using it, that doesn't make everything else trash like it xD.
Using words as cryptocurrency to describe a bitcoin issue is the same as saying the word computer to describe a windows issue.
