Where the Grass Is Greener

As climate change challenges are being intensified, an emergence in innovative financial instruments is taking place.

By combining the power of blockchain with real-world benefits in renewable energy, these cryptocurrencies offer advantages to both the renewable energy sector and investors. Renewable asset backed cryptocurrencies are a special type of digital tokens supported by actual renewable energy projects, for example, solar and wind farms.

Unlike regular cryptocurrencies that often require a lot of energy to mine, these tokens get their value from renewable energy assets, directly linked to how well the renewable energy projects are connected to perform and succeed.

The main difference between renewable asset backed cryptocurrencies and mined cryptocurrencies is their impact on the environment and how they operate.

Mining cryptocurrencies, that aren’t backed by assets needs a lot of computational power, which uses up a large amount of energy, the energy often comes from non-renewable sources.

On the other hand, renewable asset-backed tokens don’t require mining. Instead, a set number of tokens are issued, each representing a specific part of a renewable asset. This arrangement of assets allows for transparency and security because every token is directly connected to an asset.

Blockchain technology plays an important role here by offering decentralized and unchangeable records of ownership and transactions, which builds trust among investors and stakeholders. This approach supports sustainability by using green energy sources, therefore it reduces the negative environmental impact.

Governmental Feud with Crypto

Printing tangible money involves the use of a lot of energy, mainly from fossil fuels. Running the machines, keeping the printing buildings going, and moving cash around all produce carbon emissions, which worsen climate change. Then why would the government still want money to be printed if it affects the climate this much and there is a chance for a greener Mother Earth?

Digital currencies allow people to mend and bend government rules on money weakening the government’s control over the economy. For example, digital currencies allow for a higher chance of scams that are taking place. In banking systems, it easier to trace for these scams to decrease the traces and chances of scams.

It also helps criminals hide their activities and avoid being caught. This is another reason why governments are not fond of the idea of digital currencies is its receptiveness to being abused by criminal parties to withhold their activities from the public’s eyes.

The only solution lies in the collaborative efforts of the government and the pioneers of renewable asset-backed cryptocurrency, joining forces to strive for a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future is what we should aim for.
