I started programming in a time where every bit counted and you optimised to *avoid* waste of energy. Now we are doing the opposite. But the abundance of compute power comes at a HUGE cost. One we simply cannot afford.
@jwildeboer I still think that the Hayekian independent currency would be a great idea, but unfortunately, we have learned the hard way, that computational difficulty is not the way how to limit amount of such currency.
