Living near a bitcoin mining site

22 days ago

Granbury is a quaint lake town about an hour from Fort Worth … and they’re dealing with a horrible bitcoin mining facility.

40 seconds in (the video), you can really hear the noise:

Besides being awful for residents, these sites are a big reason our already-fragile grid is pushed to the limit. They use a huge amount of electricity.

No matter how much I read about it, I still don’t really understand what it even is, but it clearly needs more oversight.
