Specialist of the financial company Nomura Jordan Rochester is sure that the crypto-currency crisis will soon collapse on the world. In his opinion, bitcoin began to seriously affect other areas. First of all, we are talking about energy. The analyst argues that energy costs for the production of cryptocurrency are growing much faster than expected. This is especially true for China, where 71% of all “farms” for bitcoin are located.
The specialist believes that bitcoin will lead to economic and environmental costs as long as PoW (the concept when network security is guaranteed by the total computing power of its participants) is the most common form of obtaining cryptocurrency.
“Bitcoin is too young to influence the global market. However, it already affects the regional markets of Asia. Japan accounts for half of the world’s sales of bitcoins, in the US – a quarter. If there is a crypto-currency crisis, then, most likely, in Asia, “- said Jordan Rochester.
It is worth noting that in 2017, the cryptocurrency mining has already affected the video card market, causing them to rise in price and deficit.
