The most recent research released by CoinShares shows that the large mining farms are mining bitcoin where the costs of production are above $5,600.

We asked John Lee Quigley, a founder of Adaptive Analysis, to tell us more about cryptocurrency mining. On this episode of Blockchain Beyond Hype, he talks about mining farms and pools, and renewable energy powering them. He also argues why Proof of Work is by far the most secure consensus mechanism and why bitcoin mining is still sustainable despite the massive energy costs.
