2. I'd read quite awhile back, that bitcoin is simply another way of hiding & moving ill-gotten money

I had no idea that bitcoin mining used so much electricity. And yes, it's not a topic I understand, as you say.

Bitcoin is extremely electricity-intensive, with just a single transaction consuming the power equivalent of as much as one U.S. household does for 23 days, with the carbon footprint of about 54,563 hours of YouTube video watching.
