    It might be good to add a short (1-2 sentence) explainer of what cryptocurrencies are, how they work, etc. It’s a concept that many have not wrapped their heads around (including me), so it would be useful to have some insight from someone who knows it well.

      Agreed. I’ve been planning to improve the format of the article, and will try to include a brief introduction to cryptocurrencies, as you suggest. Thanks.

    I think listing the computing (therefore energy usage, therefore environmental impact) of each currency would add utility to the article. That is a key concern that deters me from using cryptocurrencies.

      Or would that be better as a seperate article including the better known flavours of crypto too?

        Whats your background on crypto? Actually interesting would be to research what´s up with cryptos, which are used right away with it´s purposal. Each coin represents a couple of functions. We got to separate these functions from trading (not sure if technically possible). That would add value to the adoption progress. We can go ahead and say look: It´s used here and there is this much people who are benefiting because of this crypto. Not talking about Lambo though 😉

        Cheers,

          I think both of these are good ideas – i.e. to add it to this one, but a separate article that is updated from time to time with the latest news around crypto energy usage of different systems sound super interesting too.
