In this episode of the Bitcoin Magazine Podcast, the guys bring on Brandon Green, another Bitcoin Magazine staffer, to talk about a spicy op ed he recently wrote about the Bitcoin mining energy consumption problem. Green flips the problem on its head by asking why more energy companies aren’t seeing the business opportunity in servicing cryptocurrency mining companies. The conversation meanders into the territory of universal basic income, the cost of printing money and even candy bars.
