A Bitcoin history thread from Pieter: the early history of Taproot. https://twitter.com/pwuille/status/1403726446585995266
It became fashionable to criticize Bitcoin mining because of its energy consumption, but how much electricity we're ready to spend in order to protect people from censorship? App stores are notoriously hostile to open-source software, donation aggregators such as Petreon can shut down any project at any moment and the fees are unfairly high anyway. We're not wasting energy "for nothing", it's our only chance to protect our freedoms and to get rid of middlemen who also consume a lot of energy.
