While innovation is essential for the progress of humanity, sometimes, technological advances
teeter on causing more harm than good because of their carbon footprints. Where the world of crypto aims to offer an alternative to printing money – which in theory should help reduce the globe’s carbon footprint caused by currency – crypto mining unfortunately requires an immense amount of energy.
Whacky World NFT aims to raise awareness on the ways both the crypto-world and we as individuals can reduce our carbon footprints and have a more positive impact on the planet. With the roadmap we have planned, our hope is to significantly reduce the global amount of annual carbon emissions as we promote a greener and better future for the planet.
In the meantime, here are a few ways all of us can reduce our carbon footprint going forward.
Just as Whacky World NFT is mindful and proactive about reducing our carbon footprint, so too are we urging other crypto-world players to do the same. One way we have done this is by partnering with Polygon, which is more than 99.9% carbon efficient than Ethereum.
Unlike Ethereum, Polygon uses a proof of stake process to validate transactions. This means that instead of having to solve complex problems to mine more crypto, already-mined tokens can be staked as collateral which validate transactions and mint new tokens.
