At press time, the father of crypto is maintaining its present position and is staying above $4,000. First reaching this pinnacle a few days ago, bitcoin is keeping up its momentum following a nasty fall in late 2018 that took it down to $3,600 after an extended period of trading in the $6,000 range.

According to an article published by Business Insider, Dutch bank ING recently published a study suggesting that bitcoin mining consumes too much electricity. The report claims that a single bitcoin transaction consumes as much electricity as a house in a whole month, and compares it to the amount of electricity traditional electronic payment methods consume per transaction.
