As the Bitcoin industry grows, CNN's Nick Watt visits a Washington state county where a quarter of all electricity generated is powering Bitcoin mining.



I have yet to hear a cogent explanation of Bitcoin. I don't see how it is much different that Charles Ponzi's complicated, inexplicable scheme involving foreign stamp exchange rates.

Even if I thought cybercurrency was legitimate, I'd be against it for environmental reasons.

    Nothing against your son, but for me, Bitcoin can't crash soon enough.

    I have nothing against him either, and I'd like to see Bitcoin crash too.
