Decarbonizing Crypto

The greening evolution of digital currencies 

Decarbonizing Crypto 

 

Meaningful progress on the increasingly high-profile decarbonization challenge in the crypto sector will be achieved only through collaboration, collective action, and open, objective dialogue.   

To achieve decarbonization, cryptocurrency has fundamental advantages in terms of data transparency and defined inputs, but it needs to focus on becoming credible to the public and demonstrating its utility. 

Consciousness and cooperation are increasingly needed in the decarbonization process in the cryptocurrency sector.  Inter-sectoral initiatives will be crucial and must include all participants in the ecosystem – miners, platforms, cryptocurrency holders and investors. The Greening of cryptocurrency aligns naturally with market incentives and the advancement of space. Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) will feature prominently in the next stage of crypto’s evolution.  

In this live training, you will learn how through collaboration and action to decarbonize the cryptocurrency sector, cryptocurrencies have the potential to transform energy demand into renewable energy demand, driving the growth of the global renewable energy market.
