Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency, Blockchain: the Promise and Peril
A technology exploding across NYS is celebrated for its transformative potential while criticized for its environmental impacts. To better understand this important issue, the League of Women Voters through its local chapters in Cortland and Tompkins counties will present a program on the above topic at 7 pm on Thursday, January 13, 2022.
Speaker Irene Weiser, Coordinator of Fossil Free Tompkins, will cover the basics of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies and how the energy appetite of some forms can threaten to derail achievement of NYS climate goals. While not throwing the blockchain baby out with the bitcoin bathwater, she will discuss possible directions forward.
Weiser has spent 10 years working toward local and state energy policies that will bring an affordable, equitable transition to renewable energy. She was elected to three terms as council member in the Town of Caroline, serving from 2012 to 2020.
