Bitcoin Mining Is A Dirty Business, But Might Not Be As Bad As Previously Thought

Cryptocurrency mining facilities use so much energy that the government of Abkhazia cut power to 15 mining centers last year.

But Gizmodo reports a new study shows that its carbon footprint isn't as big as we thought.
