What environmental impact does Ubisoft Quartz have?
The Ubisoft Quartz official site explains that “thanks to the Tezos blockchain, Ubisoft Quartz’s energy consumption is equal to that of a standard database. Additionally, Ubisoft is committed to measuring its global environmental impact, with details on Ubisoft Quartz, and making it public.”
He continues stating that “At Ubisoft we have been exploring blockchain technology for a number of years and the environmental impact of its initial form was one of the first limitations we identified. This observation led us to explore more advanced and efficient alternatives from the point of view. energy, based on the Proof-of-Stake protocol, in particular the one developed by Tezos, which powers the blockchain on which Ubisoft Quartz is based. Contrary to other blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, which are based on the Proof-of-Work protocol , Tezos needs much less power to run. For example, a transaction on Tezos consumes as much energy as 30 seconds of video streaming while a transaction on Bitcoin consumes the equivalent of a year of video streaming. “
