greening those laser eyes

is it the sin of greed
those red eyes on your socials?
plan B or Paris, bullish or bearish
the Dogefather environmental concerns
inflation risk adverse, let your tokens burn

the chain of blocks may register all
dark web affiliation or energy origin
Proof of Work dissuasion and tax evasion
eat steak, the Web of Value honouring content creators
the infrastructure an Orwellian nightmare or deep Big Tech domination

does the sin of greed
prevent greening your laser-red eyes?
not washing, but to start afresh
all infected to a dead address
burn billions, it's still early days


In 2021, senior lecturer Peter Howson from Northumbria University published an article on the environmental myths and concerns regarding cryptocurrency in The conversation. This poem explores the current blockchain practices and environmental concerns on energy use.
