On this page, you find some key figures about the Bitcoin blockchain electricity consumption. In order to make it easier to comprehend, we have used real life examples such as Tesla Kilometers (1 Mile is around 1.6 Km, for our American friends). All data is calculated into Kilowatt-hours (KWh) and compared and calculated against real life values such as Tesla Km. If you want to learn more and find out how this is calculated visit Bitcoin and Electricity. All data is indicative.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
This number highlights the number of persons causing the same amount of CO2 emissions per day. On average a person causes 670 Kg CO2 per year.
An average tree can bind 10 Kg CO2 per year. This is how many trees you need to bind all the emissions
Causing the same amount of emission you can flight this many persons from London to Los Angeles (8,770 km distance)
Calculation is based on 3,236 Kg CO2 emissions per person.
The circumference of the earth is 40,075 km. With an standard car, causing 190 g CO2 per Km you can drive that many time arround the world
