Our special guest today, Chris Molloy, Founder of Digital Infrastructure Associates, often refers to Bitcoin miners as the Dung Beetles of the energy market crawling around looking for unused power or power wastage.  With the ability to turn on or off 60-100 megawatts of power (the equivalent of an aluminium smelter) to moderate the power consumption on the grid.
