I've been so busy working with colleagues on the future of start-up funding and equitable ownership (Hint: it's investment #crowdfunding), that I missed the Musk announcement. Correlation does not equal causation -- but sometimes it feels good. Glad to see that Elon Musk made the right decision to stop accepting #dirtybitcoin as payment at Tesla. For anyone still doubting the negative impact of #Bitcoin on the planet, look at the estimated power consumption required for the bitcoin network in real time. As Musk put it, the energy usage “is insane” (his words).
