The Future of NFTs: It’s the Community, Stupid!
Solana is a scalability-focused blockchain, using a combination of consensus protocols to be highly efficient. In fact, in November of last year, its developers published a report on the energy efficiency of the network. Highlighting that its transactions consume much less energy than its rivals Bitcoin and Ethereum. Even less than the future PoS network, Ethereum 2.0. Solana also compared her energy consumption to several of the common activities we do every day, such as doing a Google search or charging our mobile phone. In both cases, the operation of the blockchain is more efficient, he noted in his report.
