Bitcoin’s Sustainability

Bitcoin's protocol is highly eco-friendly, allowing for easy block construction regardless of transaction quantity. Mining transactions into blocks is energy intensive, but the energy footprint of recording data is exponentially more efficient than current cloud platforms.

Bitcoin’s Environmental Credentials

Hash Digest

Digest algorithms, also known as cryptographic hash functions, transform an arbitrarily large block of data into a fixed-size output, magnitudes shorter than the input.

Binary Tree

Bitcoin uses a rooted binary tree data structure, often called a Merkle tree. This data serialising is the most efficient way of storing, indexing, searching and retrieving data, requiring less energy per byte than any other system at scale.

Prunability

Unlike traditional CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) Bitcoin nodes record a hash digest of information into a highly efficient binary tree. Miners are not required to hold the data, but just the Merkle branch and block header. This is a highly efficient data compression method.

Scalablity

Bitcoin’s built-in superpower that sets it apart from any other system is its unbounded ability to scale all of the world’s data into a single, highly efficient, Small World Network. If the Internet was created today, Bitcoin’s network would be the ultimate design for the most efficient new paradigm in global data distribution.

Becoming the World's Greenest Technology

One of the key focuses of using the Bitcoin SV blockchain is environmental sustainability. Due to its unparalleled ability to scale its transactions, coupled with keeping its energy usage in check, it is capable of becoming the world’s greenest technology.
