Crypto: TRON consensus, greener than Proof-of-Stake?

Currently around the world, authorities are working to achieve zero carbon. But, most cryptocurrencies consume a lot of energy. Some protocols, such as Ethereum (ETH), have decided to reduce this consumption by switching from Proof-of-Work (PoW) at Proof-of-Stake (PoS). You should know that there is a blockchain that is much more environmentally friendly than the best known networks: Tron! On this point, it surpasses blockchains like Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Solana (SOL), Cardano (ADA), and Avalanche (AVAX). Discover the characteristics of this protocol.

Tron, one of the greenest protocols

TRON is considered one of the most energy-efficient blockchains in Web3. It consumes little energy compared to Bitcoin and Ethereum. Its energy consumption would be equivalent to that of 15 American households. Bitcoin would consume energy comparable to that of 8.5 million American households. As for Ethereum, it would use as much energy as 1.6 million American households.

You should know that the annual energy consumption of TRON is estimated at 162,868 kilowatt hours (kWh). This amount of energy is 99.9% less than what Bitcoin consumes, which is 83 million kWh. At the same time, Ethereum consumes 22 million kWh.

All about Tron

TRON is therefore not unfairly considered one of the greenest networks. Note that this blockchain is based on the DPoS consensus mechanism (Delegated Proof-of-Stake). Efficient, fast and competitive, it was created by HE Justin Sun.

The founder of TRON said to this effect: “The increasing amount of power consumption of modern blockchains is not sustainable in the long term, neither for users nor for economies of scale. The best networks are those that can promote decentralization while keeping their carbon footprint low, to help lead the world towards a greener future.»

The TRON network is one of the greenest blockchains. Today, it hosts over 4,000 decentralized applications (DApps). This blockchain brings together more than 100 million user accounts.
