    What? Digital Beanie Babies were a bad “investment”? I’m shocked!

    Mohammed K Kiani says:

    Noise can be cut by using refridgeration system instead of cooling fans/air conditioning to keep micro processors cold, and having the complex below ground level.

    The King says:

    The whole point of this is to reduce electricity consumption but these mining activities must be banned

    DJ Well Dressed Man says:

    ‘Danish reporter Rasmus Tantholdt describes ‘stressful’ incident with Qatar security staff ‘

    ‘Danish reporter Rasmus Tantholdt was broadcasting live for Denmark’s TV2 in the Qatari capital of Doha ahead of the World Cup when the film crew was approached and threatened by Qatar security live on-air.’ Nov 16, 2022

    DJ Well Dressed Man says:

    World Cup organisers have apologised to a Danish television station whose live broadcast from a street in Doha was interrupted by Qatari officials who threatened to break their camera equipment.

    Sion Barzad says:

    the definition of irrelevancy

    DJ Well Dressed Man says:

    @Sion Barzad Then why did you reply?

    Eusunt Dac says:

    I don’t even like using credit cards, never-mind digital coins invented by some guy on his computer lmao

    Adam Hazza says:

    Imagine your electricity in down and can’t afford food because all your money is in digitals

    RollersKate says:

    It’s a little more complicated than that.

    RollersKate says:

    @Adam Hazza most people’s money is “in digital”. No one uses cash anymore. It’s all credit/debit/smart devices now.

    Lisa Chambers says:

    I thought we were worried about climate?

    RollersKate says:

    Nope. Not really. Only if it makes a good headline, but then we just get back to regularly scheduled programming.

    Sion Barzad says:

    all of this to create useless tokens that solve no real problem

    Nabara夢子 says:

    Imagine using running water from Niagara itself to cool those components. That should solve all the problems.

    kyunhwoarang says:

    Yeah.. just let the water flow. But I get why they used fans, because it is easier to maintain.

    Tohurangi says:

    Charge crypto-miners more for their electricity usage & paying for the pollution created.

    Jeremy Lopes says:

    Really! With what’s happening in Iran, you guys talk about a few complains on fan noise !!
    I use to trust Al Jazeera as my main news source because I thought it was objective and close to impartial.
    What’s happening in Iran is HUGE and there’s only 2 videos posted within a month? The website almost never talks about Iran on the main page if it’s not about their drones with Russia.
    Who can we trust now ! I hope staff members read this

    RollersKate says:

    You do know who runs Aljazeera don’t you?

    Jeremy Lopes says:

    @RollersKate Yes Qatar monarchy. You do know who runs most of other medias right?
    I also read google news for comparison.
    Do you have anything better to propose? The less biased, the better

    Chris Smith says:

    I hope all these get rich quick miners go broke soon.

    RollersKate says:

    There’s nothing very rich quick about crypto mining.

    Charitha Athukorala says:

    Another drama, by whatever happens, crypto will remain

    Snerdey says:

    Ridiculousness

    Boom Bot says:

    Untamed greed… meh. Golden antelope story

    Seeyou Seemee says:

    Lol wtf are they mining?

    Jarrod Yuki says:

    what??????????????????

    Porchen Hund says:

    why don’t they use water cooling system to cool their chips? It’s more expensive but free water is there.

    Cobus Smith says:

    Just use cash

    RollersKate says:

    I lived right next to a freeway for years that was loud all the time. It took me like 2 weeks to get used to it and it no longer even registered. I’m not sure I buy this keeping people awake thing.
