The cost (mainly from electricity) to mine a Bitcoin is in average the price of it at the time of creation less some tiny profit margin. The cost to create a Euro electronically is negligible compared to its face value. That you can spend money that you can create at virtually no cost is a corrupt monetary system.

His boss explained it better: “The day when we have the central bank digital currency out, any digital euro, I will guarantee. So the central bank will be behind it, and I think that’s vastly different from any of those things [cryptocurrencies].”
