Last 11 blocks - 0 transactions - Me and thousands other people wondering what is going on for 2 weeks already and no one answering our questions - Is there any tech people in this chat from the team?

Less than 13 transactions (all younger than 2 minutes) waiting in pool.
Network performance is great !

how much electricity are ETN using compare to BTC? This is an interesting question due to environmental profile


#48

The X3 draws 3.5 times less electricity than the S9. But is also more expensive.
But people are already developing cleaner methods for creating the needed electricity.


#49

There are approximately 22 000 X3s running on the network (6,6Gh / 300Kh) and they consume 600W (at 300Kh).

There are approximately 3 856 428 S9 on the bitcoin network (54Eh / 14Th) and they consume 1350W.

You can do the math :slight_smile:

THX for the answers. The environment is a very important question and today a political party in Norway wants to remove the tax cuts for BTC mining companies they have in norway, due to EL consumption. In Norway we have 99.9% hydro electricity. I believe this is about to be more in focus around the world in the years to come.

You’re totaly right ; here in Québec we also run mostly on hydroelectricity and Hydro Québec (the state company and only provider) decided to impose « punishing » rates to mining farms to discourage them. There was a growing demand in our province due to cheap electricity and cold climate. I’m sure we’ll see more of these situation around the globe.
