I expect that this will lead to the regulation/taxation of mining in some jurisdictions.

Proof of Stake is going to be a feather in Ethereum's cap if they can pull it off.

Interesting. How does Bitcoin energy usage compare, in relative terms to the energy involved in creating and maintaining a governmental fiat currency?

Also, won’t mining come to an end as BTC has a finite # of mineable coins?
