“What Bitcoin does is it demonetises the political class and empowers the productive class...that’s what better money does for people is it takes the people who are just rent-seeking in our political structure, and it says to them, ‘I’m sorry, but you don’t belong here because you don’t produce anything or create any net economic positive’.”

Bitcoin mining requires energy expenditure as a fundamental pillar of the proof-of-work consensus mechanism. While bitcoin is considered energy-intensive by some, it is often misreported in the media, overlooking its importance and the positive benefits for humanity of having sound money.

Similarly, while some criticise bitcoin mining as wasteful, there is ignorance regarding how mining companies are improving communities, the efficiency of the energy grid, and even the impact of energy use itself.

So how is bitcoin mining a driving force for beneficial change?

In this interview, I talk to Harry Sudock, Vice President of Strategy at Griid. We discuss how bitcoin mining works, mining as a force for good globally, and demonetising the political class.
