I’m a big admirer of cryptocurrencies. So I’m posting this here as a mea culpa of sorts for this interview I did a while back about bitcoin. I’ve come to realize that, in fact, bitcoin is the best cryptocurrency out there. Yes, it consumes large amounts of energy in the mining process. I won’t get into the excruciating details, but the energy-intensive nature of the process is what makes bitcoin so valuable and important. I just hope we can find renewables to serve as the source of the energy, because it’s a bit overwhelming.
I’ve got a post coming soon about foreign correspondents and awards. Stay tuned.
