San Francisco, California: Creator tech platform Nas Academy has partnered with Invisible College to launch the world’s first bundle of courses that can be unlocked with an NFT collection. More than $2,000 worth of courses will be made available initially, covering topics like NFT investing, Community Building, Video Editing, and Crypto fundamentals.
Did you know that Ethereum’s (ETH) blockchain, which enables the existence of NFTs, owns an annual carbon footprint equal to the size of Hong Kong’s? Or that in order to create and sell a single NFT it costs roughly 660 kilowatt hours (kWh), which releases an estimated 153 kilograms (kgs) of CO-2 into the atmosphere? The voluntary target for personal annual carbon allowance (PACA) is about 4,660 kgs per person on earth, per year. Therefore the creation of a single NFT only uses about 3% of that allowance. The creation of 250 NFTs, however, blows that target out of the water by releasing over 38,000 kgs of CO-2.
