There's an interesting book with the title: 'Mistakes were made - but not by me'.
This was a famous quote from Dick Cheney - remember him?

xxxxxxxxx (removed by moderation) is an actual Internet Protocol address. When you type gazorg.com or such it refers to a lookup table that contains the actual address. Normally you may want to keep the actual IP address secret, but don't worry I won't turn your reference into a porn site yet!

Yes. I used to work in this business and know the human ignorance on safety and skepticism regarding working according procedures but things have changed after some expensive catastrophical events. As usual with predominantly anglosaxon driven ventures things then develop exactly in the opposite direction so absurdly stringent procedures, tons of double administration and almost personal responsibility

Funny you mention that (and I think you know exactly what I mean) but AFAIK this is now mainly done in China and other places where power is cheap. It will be no surprise but Bitcoin is very environmentally unfriendly. It costs a lot of power and generates a lot of heat. I have seen enough to not want to be part of this pyramid game I recently spoke to the owner of such a company and he told me he regretted he had allowed bitcoin companies as he felt guilty for the damage done.

Considering the character of these companies and where they are located the principles on environmental issues are quite thin. The stockholders are way more important. They know the talk but don't do the walk and are responsible for a very large part of wasting energy. This is accompanied with a lot of green blah blah but the enormous amount of heat still mostly is dumped in the air.
