    It's not just withdrawing money; people with gasoline-powered cars thought they were safe when there was no power. Well, gas pumps don't work when there's no power, so....

    Summary
    On February 22nd, 2020 at 6:15 AM PST, one of the largest blocks was mined by Ethermine, a large mining pool, which bolstered miners' profits at a time when earnings were falling due to difficulty increases and a reduction in the price of ETH from its high of  ~ $2000 earlier this week to a low of ~ $1580 on Monday. 
     
    The roughly 112 ETH payout was equivalent to about $200,000 US Dollars, while a normal payout of roughly 4-7 ETH would usually result in a payout of roughly $7125 to $12,469. The high transaction fees, along with the large electricity usage that miners consume, has caused some in both the PC Gaming and Ethereum/DeFi community to express their displeasure at the current PoW (Proof-of-Work) system.
     
    All of this comes after the news that Ethereum miners made record profits in January 2020, while Ethereum users and consumers of PC hardware continue to experience exorbitant costs.

    My thoughts
    I'm personally conflicted about this. While I am an Ethereum miner, and the extra money today was definitely nice, the future of the Ethereum network is really at stake here with high transaction fees. Many of the really cool DeFi apps make no sense with transaction fees in the $12-$20 range. Climate Change is also an issue here. While I am personally mining on renewables, not everyone is, and as cryptocurrencies go more mainstream, the electricity usage could start to become a real problem.

    I don't think you can just multiply the views he gets by the CPM and determine his net worth. LTT has to pay dozens of employees, and rent the space that they are currently in. That being said, I don't think Linus is strapped for cash, despite what his choices in vehicles may tell you.

    SUVs are a big thing right now because gasoline is relatively affordable. Once it goes up, they'll be out of fashion again.
