Regarding the link to Foundation…
I think most people have seen or read something about the environmental costs of Bitcoin/Blockchain/Crypto recently – even if we don’t necessarily understand it completely. Cryptoart – the selling of unique digital artwork online, underwritten by cryptocurrency or blockchain type encryption – has the same environmental impact.
Bitcoin itself was designed to be inherently, and increasingly, wasteful in terms of resources. Other cryptocurrencies have largely taken the same route, using a so-called Proof of Work approach. This PoW uses computation to both mine currencies, and process transactions. It’s in the transactions where the cost of Cryptoart really becomes clear. This article is a pretty good primer.
TL:DR – selling one unique piece of digital art using this method has a footprint of up to 35kWh and causes emissions of close to 20kgCO2 – for one single transaction – one mouse click.
