In the latest Cointelegraph video debate, experts discuss pathways towards making Bitcoin more sustainable.
In the latest Cointelegraph Crypto Duel, founder of Digiconomist Alex de Vries and CEO and founder of Blockchain for Climate Joseph Pallant debated the intensity of Bitcoin’s footprint and possible paths forward to reduce it.
As pointed out by de Vries, Bitcoin’s energy consumption has been increasing together with its network. The analyst predicts its carbon footprint could increase tremendously as Bitcoin gets closer to mass adoption.
“I fear that this will quickly get completely out of control if adoption increases a lot more”, he said.
