Please provide a detailed explanation of your NFT platform’s environmental impact and gas emissions. Is your platform proof of work or proof of stake?
Rare Goods utilizes the Polygon blockchain. Polygon uses proof of stake, which has a much lower environmental impact than proof of work blockchains. Polygon’s validators approximately consume 0.00079TWh of electricity yearly with an approximate continuous draw of 0.00009GW, orders of magnitude below the e
