Nxt is Green & Earth Friendly

Let’s talk more about NXT and efficiency.

Everyone knows Bitcoin is based on Proof of Work. That is, there are thousands of miners around the world crunching away at hashes and gobbling up TONS of power. Proof of Stake doesn’t involve ‘mining’ per se, so it’s important to realize that unlike Bitcoin exists currently, and like Bitcoin will exist in 2040 when all of it is mined, all NXT that will ever exist already exists, so client wallets now forge (in NXT the term 'mining' is replaced with 'forging') for transaction fees. Since this can be done on a client wallet loaded on a PC (CPU forging), it is MUCH more environmentally friendly and power efficient, and is also immune to CPU zombie forging.
