How is $EOS “green”?

EOS is green because of the way the BPs are selected. They take turns processing blocks rather than competing for the opportunity. With delegated proof of stake (DPOS), the power-sucking mining war needed for proof of work (POW) blockchains like Bitcoin is unnecessary. Instead, the block producers are voted to produce blocks.

EOS is 66,4545 times more energy efficient than Bitcoin. It uses 630.72 MWh & emits 281 tonnes of CO2 per year, significantly less than the POW chains. With help from Climate Care, the EOS blockchain has offset its carbon footprint for a year (May 2020 - 2021)!

EOS uses less than .01% carbon emissions than Bitcoin.
