The crypto market is experiencing a downturn, with several coins losing a significant share of their value after an all-time high last November. However, despite this development, several crypto projects are coming into the limelight with better utility and use cases than Bitcoin and other altcoins.
It was reported early this year that Bitcoin consumes 1,449kWh per transaction, an equivalent of about 50 houses in the US. This made cryptocurrencies a subject of criticism from many groups, especially climate change advocates.
These crypto projects are eco-friendly, using just a fraction of the energy consumed by Bitcoin and Ethereum. Most of them are in their presale stage, while some are relatively old. However, they are expected to continue pumping in 2022.
The coins include
Stellar Lumen, XLM
Battle Infinity, BI
Lucky Block, LBLOCK
