I'm bored and antsy waiting for my invitation, like most of the rest of you, so here's a weird bit of news for you.
What modern invention uses 32 terawatt-hours (32,000,000,000 kwh ) of electricity every year (about the same as the country of Denmark)? No, I'm not talking about EVs, 32 twh is about the amount of electricity that 7 million Teslas would use in a year.
No, I'm talking about BitCoin. Yes, that plaything, that racket, that insanely valued virtual currency created by an anonymous programmer (some suggested that Elon Musk created it). It's estimated that people mining bitcoin and validating transactions use about 32 twh of electricity every year. That's freaking insane.
Tesla power consumption: 300 wh/mile * 15000 miles / year = 4500 kwh / year.
Bitcoin power consumption (in units of Teslas): 32*10^12 wh/year / 4500000 wh/year = 7,111,111 Teslas.
The next time someone spouts off about how EVs are going to destroy the electric grid, pop this little number back at them.
