Ethereum Aims to Go Carbon-Free
One of the most incredible changes for cryptocurrency is happening over at Ethereum’s blockchain, and it is a drastic technological shift within the company that will shift its efforts towards Earth’s preservation.

The new “proof of stake” from Ethereum will help focus on reducing the load from supercomputers to verify transactions from every venture towards the blockchain. The process would put users to verify their transactions and lighten the load for the company’s technology to do the work for them, effectively helping in reducing power consumption.
According to Science Alert, other blockchains such as Bitcoin, would see pressure from this shift towards fewer carbon emissions and encourage them to do the same.
