Cardano is known as a “green” blockchain due to the Proof of Stake consensus mechanism (PoS). PoS allows users to stake ADA, Cardano's cryptocurrency, in order to have the chance to be chosen as a validator of a new block, collecting the transaction fees from the block as a reward. This mechanism enables the blockchain to run efficiently without the requirement of extensive server mining and therefore has a massively lower energy consumption than a Proof of Work mechanism like it is used for the Bitcoin blockchain.The Cardano blockchain is about 1.6 million times more energy efficient than the Bitcoin Blockchain and has almost no environmental impact. Another advantage are the significantly lower gas fees (blockchain transaction fees) on Cardano, which enables mass adoption for mainstream communities.
