The scoop: The sustainability of Web 3 ties closely to the real world. A large portion of our world depends on energy also needed to run the web.
There are some outside factors you may not be aware of that can drastically change how Web 3 influences sustainability around the world (not just on the web).
- Only about 12% of the energy in the US comes from renewables right now. This needs to change in order to provide a more sustainable energy source for Web 3 applications.
- Web 3 applications can offset its energy consumption by making other aspects of our economy more sustainable.
- It’s still early. We are likely to see unexpected solutions come from unexpected areas. Buckle up for the ride.
What’s next? Rather than trying to predict the future, spot trends that influence the sustainability of Web 3 to better gauge its progress.
