FTX, BitMEX To Become Carbon Neutral


Bitcoin exchanges FTX and BitMEX have committed to becoming carbon neutral by donating $0.0026 for every dollar spent on blockchain transaction fees to carbon-offsetting organizations.

“We estimate that we will pay roughly $60m in blockchain fees this year, which would imply about $150k in offsetting costs,” announced FTX. “Given the uncertainty in the calculations, we’ll be rounding that (way) up to $1m.”

It was FTX’s CEO Sam Bankman-Fried who crunched the numbers in response to recent concerns raised about Bitcoin’s energy consumption, including notably from Tesla CEO Elon Musk. The calculations took into account mining and electricity costs and the corresponding carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Finally, Bankman-Fried employed estimates of how much it costs to reduce one ton of CO2 emissions.
