Watch: The Environmental Impacts of Crypto Mining
Cryptocurrency has taken the digital world by storm, but it creates emissions and electronic waste at massive scales, all while paying fossil fuel corporations to continue drilling and revive dead or dying coal plants. Crypto mining is worsening the climate crisis.
We discuss how and why we won’t let the cryptocurrency industry mine our future for profit. We also share examples of our work in New York, where Food & Water Watch has joined communities to pass a moratorium on crypto mining powered by fracked gas and other fossil fuels.
