Low energy footprint

NEAR’s innovative blockchain design uses a fraction of the energy other networks use, and requires no sort of power-draining “crypto mining” to perform transactions.

“In the long run, all blockchains will need to horizontally scale to support the massive scale that’s coming with mainstream adoption. ETH 2.0 sees this same outcome, but NEAR delivers that actual experience right now.”
