This makes the energy intensity of Bitcoin far lower than that of Google, Netflix or Facebook, and 1-2 orders of magnitude lower than that of traditional industries in the 20th century, such as aviation, logistics, retail, hotels and agriculture. He also mentioned that 99.92% of the world's carbon emissions are caused by industrial energy use other than Bitcoin mining.

⑸ JPMorgan Chase: The probability of the Federal Reserve raising interest rates by 100 basis points next week is less than one third
Golden financial report: Michael Feroli, chief American economist of JPMorgan Chase, said that it is unlikely that Fed officials will raise interest rates by 100 basis points when they meet next week. In a report to customers on Wednesday, he said that the probability of increasing 100 basis points was less than one third, and that "excellent drivers will not speed up when approaching the destination". Feroli said that an increase of 100 basis points means that the top position of the benchmark interest rate of the Federal Reserve will be higher than 5%. "We doubt this". He also warned that now increasing the monetary policy brake might strengthen the bets on the Federal Reserve's interest rate cut in 2023. This will make it more difficult for the Federal Reserve to cope with price pressure by easing financial conditions.
One of the main reasons for purchasing NFT is its emotional value. In this regard, NFT is not very different from physical goods, unless the buyer is a complete utilitarian who only cares about the material value of the goods. In real life, no one buys lip gloss out of pure need. To a large extent, people buy it because of the happy feeling it brings them. The same applies to GIFs, pictures, videos or other digital assets. Another important reason for purchasing NFT is that it has value-added space, and you can earn more money by purchasing and reselling NFT.
