Tezos blockchain uses the energy-efficient proof of stake mechanism. Apparently, the network currently uses roughly 25 million times less energy per transaction than Bitcoin and nearly 2 million times less energy than Ethereum.
Tezos is now one of the popular choices among brands and gaming companies due to its low carbon footprint, effective on-chain governance model, and elite-level developer community.
The leading brands around the world that have picked Tezos as their blockchain of choice include: The British motor racing team McLaren Racing, the NBA team Cleveland Cavaliers, the American baseball team The New York Mets, the American pizza restaurant chain Papa John's, and English Premier League giant Manchester United.
Ubisoft, esports teams Team Vitality, CCP Games (Eve Online), and Misfits Gaming Group are among the gaming companies built on Tezos.
TIME's President Joins MoonPay, a Crypto Payments Startup
Keith Grossman departed as the President of TIME, the media company, to work for cryptocurrency payments infrastructure provider MoonPay.
Under his leadership, TIME promoted the use of digital assets, accepting bitcoin as a form of subscription payment and storing ether (ETH) as part of a partnership with investment firm Galaxy Digital. The business also introduced the TIMEPieces Initiative, a group of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that include unique artwork.
Using popular payment methods, including debit cards, credit cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay, users can convert traditional fiat currency and cryptocurrencies using MoonPay. It provides the infrastructure for such transactions.
Grossman's decision might show that, despite the hazy conditions surrounding the digital asset business, interest in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology is still high among many established mainstream companies.
