How the tiny nation of georgia became a bitcoin behemoth
I came across an excellent article today during my after-office hours commute back home that left my eyes wide open with a new revelation. I am talking about the article published on National Public Radio titled: A very heartwarming article but it has helped me understand more about how Bitcoin is sustainable in the future. In the article, it talks about Georgia, the heartland of winemaking, has changed after Bitcoin mining company, BitFury, moved into their country.
We can see where this is coming from. A reasonably small how the tiny nation of georgia became a bitcoin behemoth, in terms of land size, population, GDP, but a good place for tourism I would say. Tech giants move in because of the access of relatively cheap electricity for mining farms. While you may think that Georgia is getting ripped off, Georgians are actually profiting by joining the mining of cryptocurrencies.
This has led to a "digital gold rush". Since when have you ever listened to your over-controlling governmental parents especially when they say, "It's risky. And be VERY careful.

Right now, blockchain-based cryptocurrency is a sure way of tapping onto such renewable energy converting them into something of monetary value. This changes my knowledge of how Bitcoin is gaining value each day. It does not lose its value because energy is converted into something useful in the blockchain and it will continue to grow as long as the mining process continues. Finally, I can apply the law of Conservation of Energy for the first time in my life - where energy is neither created nor destroyed but converted from one form to another.
