Satoshi’s skull is the latest in Greenpeace’s now year-long ‘change the code’ campaign to smear Bitcoin by portraying it as an environmental hazard because mining it consumes electricity.

Greenpeace intended the art installation to be a symbol of the environmental destruction caused by BTC. However, the piece seems to have had the opposite effect on the community.

change the code

Greenpeace has launched a campaign against Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies by launching a campaign to “change the code” of Bitcoin and remove its Proof of Work (PoW) verification mechanism in 2022.

The goal of the campaign is to encourage developers to make Bitcoin a Proof of Stake (PoS) coin, like Ethereum, which moved from PoW to PoS in 2022.

Bitcoin currently requires an astronomical amount of computing power to validate blocks on the network. This is because miners have been competing for his BTC rewards for over a decade. Mining competitiveness is a double-edged sword as it improves the overall security of the blockchain, but it requires more and more energy to keep the system running.

However, in recent years, as electricity costs have risen around the world, miners are increasingly turning to off-grid solutions. Some of them even employ green energy production, such as solar.
