In an interview published on PassionCrypto recently, a major Bitcoin trader and permabuller , Max Keizer, said that all of the allegations regarding bitcoin mining damaging the environment were false.
"It is the greenest industry in the world"
Unlike them, Max Keizer believes that BTC mining is actually quite environmentally friendly, since miners prefer to work in regions where electricity prices are lowest or where they can get significant discounts .
This was the case in 2019, when more than fifty percent of the Bitcoin hashrate was supplied by miners in the Chinese province of Sichuan. This was due to the cold climate, low electricity prices due to the rich hydroelectric resources and the encouragement of local authorities to set up mining enterprises last year.
