Read_596 – Bitcoin is a Pioneer Species [Brandon Quittem]

“This makes Bitcoin miners uniquely symbiotic with energy grids serving as “demand response” partners. If energy is ever in short supply, people get priority over Bitcoin miners. However whenever there is excess energy, it gets monetized. This symbiotic relationship leads to more energy abundance generally.” – Brandon Quittem

Another great piece coming at you today from The Bitcoin Times Ed 4, and by returning author Brandon Quittem, who did the incredible Mycelium Series for understanding Bitcoin through the lens of an organic mycelium like organism. Today he tackles Bitcoin mining, and how the altered incentives of Bitcoin make it a pioneer species that will allow us to expand into energy deserts, and spread the scope of civilization in a way not immediately obvious. Don’t miss today’s excellent read, “Bitcoin is a Pioneer Species.”
