Cathie Wood ARK (ARKK) Says Bitcoin Cryptocurrency Mining Is Good for Planet – Bloomberg

Bitcoin Is an Incredibly Dirty Business: Lionel Laurent
ARK has invested actively in cryptocurrency-related stocks, the latest being via purchases of Coinbase shares after it listed on the Nasdaq. And Wood said in a panel discussion that Bitcoin’s market value could go much higher than $1 trillion, a milestone it reached just recently. Square Inc., which Wood cited in a Twitter post as collaborating on the research, has been buying Bitcoin and says crypto is a growing part of its business through the use of its Cash App for Bitcoin transactions.
Bitcoin has slumped since touching an all-time high of almost $65,000 ahead of the Coinbase listing, and was trading at about $55,100 as of 7:35 a.m. in New York on Thursday.
Critics “assert that the computation required to secure Bitcoin, even if necessary, is environmentally damaging and ruining the planet,” the ARK research said. “We believe that the opposite is true: a world with Bitcoin is a world that, at equilibrium, generates more electricity from renewable carbon-free sources.”
