Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Inc., has initiated a controversial topic through his action against Bitcoin (BTC) on 13th May in relation to high energy consumption and the use of fossil fuel to power Bitcoin mining, which he believes to be bad for the environment.
Due to this major reason, Elon Musk declared the flagship cryptocurrency unavailable for buyers to acquire Tesla cars. However, he said the company is looking out to cryptocurrencies that use less than 1% of Bitcoin energy as a better replacement.
Over the last 24 hours, the topic has been widely followed with many cryptographic projects coming out to prove their capability and the fact of being the greenest.
IOTA Releases Proofs of Being One of the Greenest
In order not to lag behind in the current trend, IOTA Foundation has released its strong case for being one of the greenest in the crypto industry in a series of tweets a few hours ago.
The Foundation released relatively seven use cases in which IOTA’s unique and feeless technology is helping to combat climate change.
