    STRANDED: How Bitcoin is Saving Wasted Energy & Expanding Financial Freedom in Africa, by Alex Gladstein (Bitcoin Out Loud)

    "Bitcoin is often framed by critics as a waste of energy. But in Bondo, like in so many other places around the world, it becomes blazingly clear that if you aren’t mining Bitcoin, you are wasting energy. What was once a pitfall is now an opportunity. Bitcoin miners can be thought of as dung beetles, scraping up the waste energy that no one else wants and transforming it into something valuable." ***** In this Bitcoin Out Loud episode of THE Bitcoin Podcast, Walker reads Alex Gladstein's latest piece: STRANDED: How Bitcoin is Saving Wasted Energy & Expanding Financial Freedom in Africa ***** Go to bitbox.swiss/walker and use promo code WALKER for 5% off the Bitbox02 Bitcoin-only hardware wallet. ***** ALEX'S LINKS: Article: https://bitcoinmagazine.com/check-your-financial-privilege/stranded-bitcoin-saving-wasted-energy-in-africa Nostr: https://primal.net/gladstein X: https://twitter.com/gladstein ***** WALKER’S LINKS: NOSTR: https://primal.net/walker X/TWITTER: https://twitter.com/walkeramerica https://twitter.com/titcoinpodcast WATCH ONYOUTUBE orRUMBLE
