A real-time tracking dashboard for monitoring carbon emissions on the Solana blockchain has been made public by the Solana Foundation in partnership with the data platform Trycarbonara.
The group expects that this would encourage development in the blockchain ecosystem toward carbon emission transparency: “The Solana Foundation hopes to set a new standard for measuring emissions in blockchain by publishing this data.”
On the Solana Climate website, you can see the updated dashboard. There are presently trackers there that show the overall number of nodes, megawatt-hours, average total carbon emissions, and marginal utilization, among many other statistics.
The new dashboard also includes various graphics that compare emissions, allowing users to compare Solana consumption to a variety of other emission-producing activities side by side.
