Are Blackrock and Paypal Buying These Altcoins?

In a recent revelation, crypto analyst Chico Crypto highlighted a significant partnership that could reshape Bitcoin mining. At its core is PayPal’s bold move to promote eco-friendly practices in the industry.

Sounds exciting, but what is it all about? Let’s dive into the details below.

Joining Forces for Good

PayPal has joined forces with Energy Web and DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. Their goal? To encourage miners to switch to low-emission energy sources. Through Energy Web’s Green Proofs for Bitcoin Initiative, miners can now earn certifications for sustainable mining, paving the way for a greener future.

EWT Tokens – Limitless Potential?!

Among the collaborations, Chico Crypto pointed out the importance of EWT tokens, Energy Web Chain’s native currency. These tokens, used for energy sector transactions, could accelerate Bitcoin’s journey towards sustainability. With PayPal and Blackrock’s interest in the energy sector, EWT’s demand might soar.

Paradigm Shift in Climate Accounting

Moreover, Chico Crypto uncovers PayPal’s partnership with South Pole Global and the Crypto Carbon Ratings Institute, which jointly developed a Crypto Climate accounting framework. This framework, crafted with input from PayPal’s Blockchain, Crypto, and Digital Currencies (BCDC) team, lays the groundwork for greenhouse gas accounting within cryptocurrency value chains.

Notably, South Pole Global’s involvement in the D-REC initiative and Energy Web’s pivotal role in this space underscores the interconnectedness of these partnerships and their potential impact on sustainability efforts.

Sustainable Ventures

Interestingly, BlackRock’s involvement in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) efforts highlights its participation in the Clean Skies for Tomorrow initiative by the World Economic Forum and RMI. This initiative aims to create a system for SAF certificates (SAFc). With BlackRock’s interest in SAF and mention of SAFCs in its TCFD report, there’s speculation about the firm using Energy Web’s network to support its sustainability goals.

Facing the Critics

Critics argue that bitcoin mining has detrimental environmental effects, such as air and water pollution, as well as excessive energy consumption. Reports suggest that bitcoin mining consumes 127 terawatt-hours (TWh) yearly, exceeding Argentina’s energy usage. A New York Times analysis highlights that Bitcoin miners collectively use about seven times the energy consumed by Google annually for its global operations.
