Yes, I've seen this
Some further research needed I think.
But first some cheering art that speaks to these concerns. /Julian
Oliver's //Harvest <https://julianoliver.com/output/harvest>/ - Wind
energy used to mine cryptocurrency to fund climate research.
These are the things I want to know - need to research.
1) How do Blockchain based emissions compare to those of other global
communication and trading network infrastructures such as:
- Other currency and financial trading systems (including High Frequency
- Streaming video servers for Netflix, Amazon etc
I wish the person who had penned this blog had done more to compare like
with like. Anyone got a nice online resource we can point to?
2) And what is the carbon emission prognosis is for newer developments
in blockchain technologies that use Proof-of-Stake rather than
Bitcoin was the first, there are a many other blockchain technologies
now developing different (including much more energy efficient) approaches.
Can we combine efforts here. Figures/references anyone please?
