Bjarne Stroustrup, a Danish computer scientist and the creator of C++ programming language, has vented his frustration with use of C++ in Bitcoin mining. "I'm very happy and proud of some of the things C++ is being used at and some other things I wish people wouldn't do, Bitcoin mining being my favorite example - it uses as much energy as Switzerland and mostly serves criminals."

Despite more computing power being dedicated to Bitcoin mining, less electricity was required to fuel it.
