One study warned that Bitcoin could push global warming beyond 2°C.
Since December, a new phenomenon in the art world has added to the environmental concerns about cryptocurrencies: NFTs. Ethereum, the second most popular cryptocurrency after Bitcoin, creates the NFTs. The average NFT generates 440 pounds of carbon—the equivalent of driving 500 miles in a gas-powered car—producing emissions 10 times higher than the average Ethereum transaction.
