The Solana Foundation has partnered with the carbon data platform Trycarbonara to collect statistics on its carbon emissions in real-time. This is a first for a major smart contract blockchain network, as the code that runs Dapps and NFT projects is stored in smart contracts.
Solana will update a specialized dashboard regularly with information tracking the network’s most important environmental indicators, such as its energy usage, carbon footprint, and network power intensity.
The emissions monitor is a product of Solana’s partnership with the carbon data platform Trycarbonara, and it compiles statistics using on-chain data and information supplied by a random subset of Solana validators. The Solana Foundation wants to change the way crypto users view their impact on the environment by disclosing the environmental impact of their own network.
