The US military uses 30 terawatt-hours (TWh) of energy each year, which is more than the entirety of Ireland, and approximately twice that of Iceland.

Estimates put Bitcoin's energy usage at 60TWh per year, about that of Switzerland.

Do you think the US military or Bitcoin is a better use of energy?
