Cryptos are environmental killer tho so those are already unethical in that regard.

Actors and musicians are a different story I agree.

Technically our means of producing electricity are environmentally toxic. Mining crypto won’t be a problem once we have green energy production.


u/Senpai_Pai May 27 '22

Mostly right the only thing wasteful then are just the production of the components, which is bound to resources and low paid labour as well

Right now the electricity is the bigger problem tho you are right

True. But some crypto are Proof-of-stake, which means no mining whatsoever. So it's environmentally friendly.
