How much energy does Bitcoin cost for a simple transaction
compared to a simple credit card purchase?
I am not asking about the mining cost of a new bitcoin,
I mean using existing Bitcoins for a transaction.

i read a statement today where some BC 'professional agitator' stated that creating BC was the best value in electricity usage that anyone could ever have, the value in electricity, the amount used while making a BC, is unbeatable

i turned the page...

:tired:

i didn't have the answer, too many unknowns for me to figure it out, but i was curious

maybe you read the same article...

Wouldn't know I use credit cards for every transaction I have made for decades.
