However, cryptocurrency and blockchain developers think that they can fix it.
For instance, Bitcoin takes a significant amount of time to process along with higher transactions fees.
Thus, developers designed altcoins that have lower fees and faster processing times.
According to experts, the PoW (proof-of-work) requirement that consumes a lot of energy can be replaced with a unique verification method, making the new altcoin more efficient. It will also save the world’s energy from being soaked up to mine Bitcoins.
