Crypto is a fantasy; it will NEVER be stable, because it CANNOT be stable. It's growth is exponential, which means it's loss is exponential, which means it grows and loses so fast, that an hour later what you paid for a product can be worth twice the product. This is why no businesses really accept crypto, and why Valve, owners of steam, stopped accepting BTC as payment for their distribution service.
A volatile currency can never be used, it's essentially a fake propped up investment scam.

And I question the electrical usage as a reason to poo poo it.
