Since Tesla decided to stop accepting Bitcoin payments in 2021 because they are too environmentally damaging, there are more and more chains trying to work on their carbon footprint. At the front of the race is Elrond. In an analysis of the chain, sustainability experts at Offsetra found that it has a carbon footprint of 6 million kg with its 5,000 servers in 30 countries. However, this is compensated by 7. 4 million kg. The network also processes 15,000 TPS and can exceed 100,000 TPS. CEO Beniamin Mincu stresses in an interview that it is important for mankind to be aware of its impact on the environment.
