Brandt noted that Saylor’s comment is valid only in the sense that the top cryptocurrency asset is useless without an exorbitant use of energy. 

According to Brandt, Bitcoin does not even provide economic function, adding that: 

“It is a huge myth that somehow BTC is anything but energy consumption.”

Recall that the CEO of the leading business intelligence firm, Saylor, had gone about with his usual Bitcoin praise.  

“Bitcoin is a digital commodity because it has no issuer and is secured by energy,” Saylor tweeted on Tuesday. 


Traditional Financial Experts Criticize Bitcoin’s Energy Consumption

Bitcoin’s energy consumption has been a major topic of discussion for years. Traditional financial experts have slammed the cryptocurrency for the enormous energy it requires to complete transactions.

It is not surprising that Brandt is slamming Bitcoin’s energy consumption, given that he is also regarded as a traditional financial expert. Brandt is a veteran futures trader who has been in the sector since 1975.
