  • The environmental cost of #Bitcoin: "One mine alone was using 175MW of electricity, the government said"
    Simple solution: Use Nano instead. It's instant, 100% fee-less and about 6,000,000x more energy-efficient than Bitcoin (0.1 Wh per transaction), while offering all of its benefits. Sounds too good to be true, I know. But it's been working flawlessly since late 2014. If you wanna give it a chance, download a wallet like Natrium, post your address here and I'll send you some Nano to play around with. Using Bitcoin is completely unnecessary.
    You're right that Proof-of-Stake is a lot better than Proof-of-Work from an environmental point of view, which is an extremely important development. However, PoS also has some drawbacks, like strong centralization tendencies (because those who already own a lot of coins gain even more by staking them). A relatively new approach to solving the double-spend problem is Nano's combination of a data structure called Block Lattice and Open Representative Voting. In a Block Lattice, each account has its own Blockchain. Only the owner himself can push new transactions to his/her chain. Special accounts (the Representatives) only vote on conflicting transactions. Their voting weigths depend on the amount of coins that other accounts have delegated to them. The basic concept is very similar to the concept of representative democracy, where people assign their votes to representatives who then vote on their behalf on important issues. The main benefit of this approach is a lack of environmentally harmful mining, which allows extremely efficient transactions without any fees and near-instant transaction times. If you want to learn more about Open Representative Voting, check out the Nano website.

  • Nano is a better store of wealth than Bitcoin
    BTC has easy-to-use multisig wallets which is pretty huge for SOV and custody. As far as I can tell, NANO still doesn't have this - . I found a third-party attempt at it mentioned on forums called "MuSig", but the links seem to be dead. I think it may be possible to "roll your own" multisig NANO wallet, but this isn't something anyone storing wealth wants to do themselves or trust to a random developer.
