"Blockchains make a platform like Art Blocks possible, but at the same time, blockchain tech is responsible for significant global energy consumption. Art Blocks is building a portfolio of sustainability and community initiatives in order to contribute in a positive way to our world. While purchasing carbon offset credits may not be a complete solution, we believe that by incorporating human friendly initiatives into the core culture of our project early on we can potentially set a precedent as this vibrant NFT ecosystem expands. Anything less is frankly a missed opportunity and we intend to lead by example." - Erick
Art Blocks has also offset tens-of-thousands of tonnes of CO2e across various other platforms outside of Offsetra, and will continue to retire more as the platform grows.
