With so many people concerned about how much power is used in mainstream cryptocurrencies, it is strange that the number of people is increasing Don’t divert their attention To TRON, one of ETH’s biggest competitors.
Is TRON the ultimate energy saver?
There are many arguments about how much energy is used in the crypto space. Bitcoin mining seems to use more energy than many developing countries (there are countless reports published on this issue), for example. It seems that people like Elon Musk – who has always been a fan of cryptocurrency – have turned their backs on potential money-making opportunities because they are very concerned about what the future of mining holds and the damage it could do to the planet.
Musk announced early last year that he would allow cryptocurrency holders to buy Tesla cars with bitcoin. Everyone was excited and it seemed like the coin would reach a whole new level of respect and mainstream interest, but that wasn’t entirely the case because after just a few weeks, he scrapped the decision claiming the amount of energy used in the mining process was unjustified, and he was unable to condone the practice of using Bitcoin without miners being more transparent about their sources.
By contrast, ETH has long talked about what is known as “merging,” a situation in which a blockchain network will switch from a Proof of Work (PoW) to a Proof of Stake (PoS). The move is scheduled for September 15 of this year, and it is claimed that it will make Ethereum not only faster and less expensive for users, but it will also make the blockchain more energy-efficient and more carbon-neutral. We’ll have to wait and see if that really works.
Finally, countries like China have even declared bitcoin mining illegal within their borders as a way to become more green in the future. Many of the country’s miners have been forced to leave and set up shop in areas such as Texas, which is now experiencing a power grid crisis due to the amount of pressure the new miners are placing on the state’s electricity supply.
TRON – like the latest version of Ethereum – has long been proving a unit of quota that allegedly makes it much less energy-intensive than BTC, for that matter. In fact, TRON is reported to use 99 percent less energy than both BTC and the previous version of ETH during the mining process.
The CCRI report stated:
For practitioners choosing the blockchain PoS protocol, other factors such as decentralization, network throughput, and functionality (for example, smart contracts) should play a vital role as decision criteria.
At the time of writing, TRON is at seven cents and has experienced declines like many other assets.
