I know the logo has the leaf branding and the website mentions “Sustainable cryptocurrency” but should there be more explicit and prominent marketing for the energy efficiency of Peercoin? For me it seems to be the primary selling point.
I hear all the time from people that they don’t like Bitcoin because of the amount of energy it requires and then they dismiss cryptocurrency altogether because of it. There are arguments that Bitcoin mining is done in areas where energy is cheap and tends to use more renewable sources, but it’s still the case that the energy consumption is very large and that energy could be used elsewhere. There are also large resources that go into mining equipment.
Wouldn’t it make sense to promote Peercoin as a more efficient and eco-friendly alternative? A move to remove PoW altogether would perhaps help to sell that message.
