cryptocurrency nuclear power

This script calculate the total electricity power needed by cryptocurrency miners (only miners, not including air conditionner), via the network hashrate of commons cryptocurrency and the power of hardware needed to mine.

On October 2020, cryptocurrency needs 35 nuclear reactors !

          Power  : cryptocurrency
    12058457534W : Bitcoin (12.06 GW)
     3901752371W : Monacoin (3.90 GW)
     2259830274W : Zcash (2.26 GW)
     1159370668W : Ethereum (1.16 GW)
     1066431941W : Decred (1.07 GW)
      591213900W : Dogecoin (591.21 MW)
      487516317W : GroestlCoin (487.52 MW)
      441576770W : BitcoinDiamond (441.58 MW)
      402455408W : Litecoin (402.46 MW)
      336659264W : Dash (336.66 MW)
      306769480W : Monero (306.77 MW)
      249246128W : BitcoinCashABC (249.25 MW)
      196559189W : Horizen (196.56 MW)
      150185010W : BitcoinSV (150.19 MW)
      117720650W : Viacoin (117.72 MW)

Total used power for all listed cryptocurrency: 24.48 GW

        = 0.92 % of world electricity
        = 35.26 nuclear reactors of 900MW
        = 7.83% of world nuclear reactors


  • 12 may 2018 : 7.78 GW
  • 12 jun 2018 : 8.46 GW
  • 18 august 2018 : 9.33 GW
  • 27 january 2019 : 10.24 GW = 14.75 nuclear reactors
  • 12 august 2019 : 16.13 GW = 23.2 nuclear reactors
  • 23 october 2020 : 24.48 GW = 35.26 nuclear reactors
