    The environmental impact is terrible and the energy use per transaction dwarfs normal transaction processing by 3-4 orders of magnitude. Etherium 2.0 with all the planned features like sharding has some potential to be a functional currency in 1-2 years but until then all crypto is a speculative way of holding money with a system fundamentally secured by wasted power. If someone makes a more efficient miner they make money and the difficulty just scales to keep the power usage rising.
