Fucking steam.

So I have the mobile app and when I enter my login details it tells me it is protected by the Steam Mobile Guard Authenticator app (seem to remember this years ago). Anyway, there is no app called that, apparently it is now part of the app I am attempting to login to but cannot as it does not display any codes.

When you signed up for it (you had to do it through the Steam app), it gave you a code to put in to rescue the account which it told you to write down somewhere... The authenticator codes are there for me on the login screen, it looks just like any other TOTP app.

Fucking impossible to buy a graphics card these days. It's my son's birthday soon and the market is still totally fucked.
Ethereum miners have been told (by core devs) to prepare for mining to come to an end by the end of this year so I expect the second-hand situation (availability and price) to improve dramatically over the next few months.

Has anyone figured out how much it costs to fuel to current currencies?

There were some reports the other day saying that currency mining was using more leccy than some medium sized countries so I'm guessing its's that total figure divided by number of transactions.

There are millions of transactions though.

If it was X amount of bitcoins = Y amount of CO2 to generate and therefore has a measurable environmental cost per coin then I would believe it but not a transaction itself.

There's been lots of studies into the environmental costs of paper money and credit/debit card production, which are both bad, but are being managed down as cash goes away and even physical cards go. Then the marginal costs of debit/credit card transactions are vastly lower than Bitcoin or Ethereum though.

But more importantly, Bitcoin isn't really being used as a transactional currency, just a speculation tool. While a Visa transaction still uses energy, at least I can buy dinner with it.

I still don't get what the generation of bitcoins actually does except burn through a lot of unnecessary power, therefore unnecessary damage to the environment. If it was something like working on proteins or scanning space for planets or even SETI etc then I could understand.

The only day-to-day thing Bitcoin is used to purchase seems to be drugs (And Teslas it seems...)

As for the value of a coin, it just seems to be determined by supply and demand and easily manipulated to make rich people a lot richer, see the recent shenanigans.

He’s right. Saying you care about global warming but supporting Bitcoin is cognitive dissonance.

I think we're all a bit guilty of cognitive dissonance when it comes to global warming though, we just like to pick on things that are easy to fix and very conveniently have lots of opposition.
