SLP12 – Bitcoin Mining and Energy, with Hass McCook

Hass McCook

Hass McCook and I discuss the Bitcoin mining market and his recent research, “The Cost and Sustainability of Bitcoin”. We cover key bitcoin mining metrics, bitcoin mining cost price ranges, the Bitcoin Price – Mining Hash Rate relationship, the evolution of bitcoin mining over the past 3 years, and compare Bitcoin mining costs vs Gold mining. This is a good episode for people who would like an overview on the current state of play in Bitcoin mining.

Here is one of the tables we discuss from the report (Table 4):
