Answer IMF: Bitcoin consumes millions of times more energy than credit cards

According to a new report published by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency, consumes a million times more energy than credit cards.

The calculations of the IMF report are based on academic and private sector publications.

The report, which has been criticized by many analysts and economists, shows that central bank digital currencies (CBDC) and some private cryptocurrencies are actually more efficient than traditional payment systems.

Currently, credit and debit cards account for the vast majority of all cashless transactions.

The paper presents an argument for abandoning the Proof of Work (mining) consensus system and using licensed systems in order to make a giant green leap.
