Velas: the Exponential Growth of the Swiss Carbon-Neutral Blockchain
On a mission to build the world’s fastest and most scalable EVM/eBPF hybrid chain, Velas is a blockchain company headquartered in Crypto Valley Zug, Switzerland. Since 2019, their product has received multiple recognitions, including “Blockchain Protocol of the Year” by AIBC Summit.
I had the pleasure to interview Shirly Valge, Chief Operating Officer at Velas, and discuss the company’s commitment to sustainability as well as their plans for Q4.
Velas: 100% carbon-neutral blockchain. What does that mean?
Yes, that’s true Velas is a 100% carbon-neutral blockchain that prioritizes the well-being of our planet.
We understand the importance of creating a better world and taking care of the environment. That’s why Velas integrates an innovative hybrid consensus mechanism of Delegated Proof-of-Stake (PoS) with Proof-of-History (PoH). This not only provides high transaction speeds and low fees but also ensures that our blockchain is environmentally friendly.
Unlike traditional blockchain networks, such as Bitcoin, which consume substantial amounts of energy, Velas has taken a different approach. By implementing the energy-efficient Proof-of-Stake mechanism, we significantly reduce energy consumption while maintaining effective network protection.
Our aim is to offer a sustainable blockchain solution that meets the needs of the cryptocurrency community while minimizing the environmental impact. Velas stands as a testament to the possibilities of technology and environmentalism working together.
By choosing Velas, users can enjoy the advantages of a cutting-edge blockchain platform while contributing to a greener future. We invite everyone to join us on this journey towards a more environmentally conscious and technologically advanced world.
