Bitcoin Energy Consumption Index by Digiconomist
The amount of power consumed into Bitcoin mining alone is exponentially increasing. Estimated TeraWatt/Hours (TWh) of energy consumed increased more than 5x from 2017 to 2018. Digiconomist published a report disclosing the amount of electricity consumption of mining Bitcoin matches the energy consumption of Chile. If mining Bitcoin can match the energy consumption of an entire country, we should understand the repercussion it has on the environment.
