Sintesi dell'editore

The value of bitcoin may have stumbled in recent months, but in Iceland it has known only one direction so far: upward. The stunning success of cryptocurrencies around the globe has had a more unexpected repercussion on the island of 340,000 people: It could soon result in an energy shortage in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

"Cryptocurrency Mining in Iceland Is Using so Much Energy, the Electricity May Run Out" is from the February 13, 2018 Business section of The Washington Post. It was written by Rick Noack and narrated by Sam Scholl.
