There is a hot debate right now about Bitcoin mining. Is it bad for the planet? Is it necessary? Can we use currencies that do not process transactions with electricity? A professor of philosophy and environmentalist will sit down with a miner, data cruncher, and industry analyst to discuss the perhaps surprising link between Bitcoin mining and human rights.
