Upland, the NFT metaverse that is mapped to real-world addresses, is partnering with EOS Authority to highlight its commitment to blockchain sustainability. To celebrate this partnership, Upland has worked with EOS Authority and ClimateCare to offset a year of carbon emissions for the entire EOS Mainnet.
“Not all blockchains and NFTs are created equal,” said Dirk Lueth, Co-Founder of Upland. “At Upland, we pride ourselves on being a more sustainable option as we use the EOS blockchain which from its inception was made to scale sustainably and is more energy-efficient than Bitcoin or Ethereum.”
Meet Our Partners
Upland’s mantra is “Rebuild the World” and the company is building a platform where people will not only play by trading and developing virtual properties but also socialize and earn real money. In other words, a truly digital economy that is “rebuilding the world” with sustainability top of mind.
“At EOS Authority we believe the future of blockchain is sustainable and together with our many partners, like Upland, we have made EOS the world’s first major carbon-neutral blockchain,” said Roshan Abraham from EOS Authority.
EOS Authority is a founding block producer focused on software & infrastructure based in the UK. EOS is established as a third-generation blockchain, based on the Delegated Proof of Stake consensus algorithm (DPoS). EOS has been working with ClimateCare to calculate global EOS server CO2 emissions. EOS Authority is different and environmentally friendly because of the low power consumption, making it the world’s first major carbon-neutral blockchain. Some statistics calculate that EOS is 66,454 times more energy-efficient than Bitcoin or 17,236 times than Ethereum.
EOS focuses on the critical pain points of blockchain and attempts to solve the problem of speed, scalability, and flexibility that often become a bottleneck. EOS Authority supports many environmental projects around the world for carbon credits.
ClimateCare is dedicated to tackling climate change and improving lives. It aims to make our world a climate neutral one – where everyone takes full responsibility for their carbon footprint. ClimateCare helps organisations take responsibility for their climate impact by financing, developing and managing carbon reduction projects across the world.
“When we speak to a lot of our community members and to future partners like musical artists, athletes and consumer brands, the topic of sustainability always comes up”, says Lueth, “They are all carefully selecting which blockchain projects they want to be a part of and energy efficiency is important to them. They appreciate or are even relieved to find out that Upland’s blockchain technology consumes so little energy.”
