Bitcoin’s energy use got studied, and you libertarian nerds look even worse than usual: 

The first peer-reviewed study of bitcoin’s energy consumption confirms fears: Bitcoin’s energy consumption is growing at 20% *per month* and is effectively erasing decades of progress on renewable energy.

Bitcoin is another step in the accelerating entropy of abstracting real objects into virtual pieces of information, breaking that information into pieces & revirtualizing it. What will it do to the ecosystems in the real world? What does entropy do to the real world? Surprised?
