As cryptocurrency adoption and blockchain technology usage continue to rise, energy consumption has become a concern. For instance, Bitcoin alone consumes
more energy than Argentina does within a year! However, Solana adopts an environmentally conscious approach by incorporating green mining as one of its core principles.
Unlike other blockchain networks that rely on the energy-intensive Proof-of-Work consensus, Proof-of-Stake consensus that is used by Solana blockchain significantly reduces energy consumption. Consequently this eco-friendly alternative attracts environmentally conscious investors seeking to invest in cryptocurrencies.
