The Ultra Blockchain recently received certification to ensure its CarbonNeutral® energy usage. It thus becomes the first sustainable blockchain focused on the world of gaming and entertainment, guaranteeing high throughput with low power consumption.
Ultra's sustainability assessment was conducted by Natural Capital Partners, a trusted entity helping companies such as Microsoft, Logitech, and Sky achieve important carbon emission targets.
“Having an eco-friendly blockchain was one of our goals from day one. With the tools, resources, and determination to reach this goal, we’re very proud to be one of the first sustainable blockchain projects in the world. We’ll continue to take steps to ensure we do everything possible to maintain and exceed our current efforts.” - Nicolas Gilot, Co-CEO of Ultra
Ultra is able to be so efficient in particular because of its consensus model, Proof-of-Authority (PoA). Unlike Proof-of-Work, PoA is able to drastically reduce energy consumption and substantially increase transaction throughput.
