New ReportThe Crypto Carbon Ratings Institute (CCRI),It demonstrates the sustainability of our environment TRON Network. According to the “Energy Efficiency and Carbon Footprint of the TRON Blockchain” report, the highly popular TRON network only consumes as much electricity as just fifteen average U.S. households.
TRON Network’s Environmental Sustainability
Public, academic, and industrial discussion has focused on the electricity consumption of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency. Various estimations exist, comparing Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies’ electricity consumption to various mid-sized countries. Since the problem was well known, many technologies and systems have attempted to solve it.
In terms of electricity, the consensus mechanism of Proof of Stake is superior to traditional Proof of Work consensus mechanisms. While it is consensus in the broader scientific community that PoS does not exhibit the same electricity issues as PoW, individual PoS systems’ responsibility is typically less clear.
Because of differences in the software engineering process, as well as network architectures, PoS systems have different requirements regarding hardware, programming language and network size. They also depend on transaction throughput, complexity and transaction throughput. The electricity consumed and the associated carbon footprint are affected by these variables.
The report was created to examine, include, and provide insight into the TRON Proof Of Stake network’s electricity consumption and carbon footprint.
The investigation reveals that TRON is the network. There are 367 nodes, Transactions of 2.33 billion dollars per annumIt is the The total annual electricity consumption in the United States is 162,867.85 Kilowatts, 443.78 kWh/year is the electricity price per node, Electricity per transaction: 0.07 WhAnd Total carbon emissions total 69.47/year. These results were extrapolated using the assumption that transactions occurred during one-day to an annual transaction count required to contextualize electricity consumption.
The report concludes that TRON is an ecologically sustainable network system based on its four-step methodology. In the report, an approach is outlined for calculating the TRON network’s electricity consumption and carbon footprint. After selecting the right hardware, measuring the protocol and calculating the relevant metrics (including key ones such as using the Bitcoin or Ethereum networks for comparison), the investigation team began to prepare the report.
The team had previously estimated that the Proof of Stake network’s annual electricity consumption was 162 867.85kWh. This results in an annual carbon footprint of 69.47 tons of CO2e. The network uses approximately 15x less electricity than other consumers such as the average US household and generates 11x the electricity of an intercontinental round trip flight.
Overall the network emits very little, particularly when compared to other PoS networks, such as Algorand Cardano Cardano or Solana.
TRON’s Unique Delegated Proof of Stake System
From the bottom up, decentralization can only be achieved. The core vision of TRON is to decentralize the internet, and TRON’s strong foundation has led to a successful process started from the grassroots that lets TRON operate per that vision. Through the centralization of consensus, decentralization is key to decentralized protocol governance. Blockchains can use a variety of consensus mechanisms, with each having its pros and cons.
TRON does not use the PoS consensus method, but instead uses delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS). This allows for better decentralization. DPoS is different from PoS in that it increases the ability of the community elect nodes to approve transactions blocks. Just as building on a blockchain doesn’t create decentralization by default, DPoS doesn’t automatically create a strong foundation for a decentralized system.
In the TRON ecosystem, the community elects 27 block validators to serve as “super representatives” (SR) every six hours for this vital task. These SRs are openly voted and chosen by the community of users staking their TRX, TRON’s native token, in the blockchain system. Regardless of how much TRX is staked, each SR has only one vote. This grants them only 3.7% of their actual voting power.
TRON’s elimination of the power to control governance based on staked assets has resulted in an equitable distribution of power and avoids centralization. As a result, TRON’s adaptation to DPoS has created a stronger foundation for decentralization than other PoS blockchains.
Like any blockchain network, TRON’s network is also composed of distributed nodes, which form the core of the network’s infrastructure. They are essential to decentralization, and TRON’s nodes are energy efficient. The report shows that marginal electricity consumption for a single transaction from a TRON node is 0.072345 Ws. The team utilized Carbon Footprint’s location-specific emission factors to calculate the average carbon intensity of the country in which a TRON node is located. The report states that the TRON-based blockchain protocol uses an excessive amount of electricity, which may lead one to conclude that it is not worth discussing their current environmental impacts. TRON can be described as an eco-conscious and sustainable network.
