    Ep 36 | Greatest Hits - Crypto & The Carbon Emissions Debate with Nic Carter & Meltem Demirors

    In this Greatest Hits episode of The Money Movement, we revisit a discussion from just over a year ago where Jeremy was joined by Nic Carter and Meltem Demirors to discuss the crypto carbon emissions debate.

    Here is the original episode description, originally published March 31, 2021:

    With exploding interest and adoption of crypto, once again the debate over "Crypto's Carbon Footprint" has returned, with critics sharing wild assertions about the energy footprint of Proof-of-Work network security. We will break down the facts, the research, and a view into not just how crypto is driving renewable energy innovation, but also examine the carbon footprint of security infrastructure backing the U.S. Dollar.

    In this episode of The Money Movement, Jeremy is joined by Nic Carter, General Partner at Castle Island Ventures* and Meltem Demirors, Chief Strategy Officer at CoinShares*.
