Bubblehouse partners with Polygon to become the first carbon-neutral and eco-friendly NFT marketplace

Friday, 03. December 2021 15:00

NEW YORK, Dec. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Bubblehouse announces it will launch as the first carbon-neutral and eco-friendly NFT marketplace, built on the Polygon blockchain, a climate sustainable blockchain that is over 99.99% more carbon efficient than Ethereum.

Bubblehouse has partnered with Polygon, and based on Polygon’s blockchain activity, Bubblehouse x Polygon have carbon-neutralized all of Bubblehouse’s NFTs and the Polygon network for the next year. The Polygon token has a fully diluted market capitalization of over 17 billion USD as of November 15, 2021.

The carbon output of Polygon is so low that Bubblehouse x Polygon neutralized the entire blockchain’s carbon with less than 10K USD in carbon offsets via the non-profit organization One Tree Planted’s carbon offset program. Bubblehouse x Polygon have published the calculations publicly for all to view, in addition to the carbon offset certification.

This program establishes Bubblehouse as the first carbon-neutral NFT marketplace, and Polygon the first carbon-neutral blockchain network.

With a commitment to sustainability, Bubblehouse opens the door to all creators and collectors who so far have avoided NFTs due to Ethereum’s carbon impact. To put Polygon’s sustainability into context, creating an NFT on Polygon is equivalent to sending less than 2.5 emails, while creating an NFT on Ethereum is equivalent to sending 20,750 emails.

The table below showcases Polygon’s sustainability relative to other human activities and Ethereum.

Bubblehouse x Polygon paves the way to the next frontier of eco-consciousness within the NFT space, in the hopes that others will follow.

“Sustainability is a core value for Bubblehouse and our community. We know sustainability on different blockchains has weighed on creators’ minds, and we’re grateful to be able to blaze the trail to a carbon-neutral Web 3.0,” says Rohan Sinha, CEO and co-founder of Bubblehouse.

“Polygon is excited to partner with Bubblehouse and cement Polygon as the go-to eco-friendly and sustainable blockchain of choice with this carbon neutral program,” says Arjun Kalsy, VP of Growth at Polygon. “Polygon’s energy consumption is so low that Bubblehouse and Polygon, together, will neutralize not only Bubblehouse’s carbon impact but the entire Polygon blockchain for the next year with less than $10,000 USD in carbon offsets.”

Bubblehouse, which utilizes the Polygon blockchain, is the first NFT platform that makes it easy for the mainstream world to create and collect NFTs without crypto expertise. Creators can make NFTs for free and with a single click, and collectors can purchase NFTs with standard payment mechanisms, while accessing exclusive collectors clubs and creator interactions as NFT holders.
