SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA (November 18, 2022) – ConsenSys and 18 other companies Ethereum Climate Platform (ECP), Rolf Skar, Special Projects Manager at Greenpeace USA, said:The Ethereum Climate Platform (ECP) is another example of crypto platforms taking initiatives to mitigate the climate crisis, with Bitcoin falling further behind as the world grapples with the climate crisis. Ethereum has already stopped using energy-intensive proof-of-work “mining.” Going one step further, the ECP platform seeks to address Ethereum’s historic carbon footprint by investing in initiatives that could have a positive impact on the climate.
“Bitcoin is falling further behind as other companies in the cryptocurrency industry grapple with the climate crisis. Players refuse to acknowledge the problem at all, while making changes to other crypto technologies to make them more efficient and coming up with approaches to address historic climate pollution, Bitcoin’s Mining” has gotten dirtier in recent years. coal As its best power source.
“We hope that people and companies involved with Bitcoin see this as a wake-up call to change to an energy efficient protocol and actively transition the world away from fossil fuels.”
