How It Started With Elon Musk
The carbon footprint of cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin (BTC), the first and largest cryptocurrency, has been a hot topic in the crypto ecosystem over the past week.
The discussion was initiated by the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, who slammed Bitcoin miners for using fossil fuel for their mining operations rather than renewable energy.
The billionaire tech expert decided to temporarily remove Bitcoin (BTC) as Tesla’s payment option until the issue with carbon footprint is addressed and renewable energy constitutes Bitcoin mining operations.

Considering the data, Stellar Lumens (XLM) leads in every aspect, especially the carbon emitted per transaction, which makes the digital asset the best for payment and environment among the other three means of payment on the list.
