Public Pressure is built on Polkadot. Polkadot has the lowest total electricity consumption and carbon emissions per year of the six proof-of-stake (POS) blockchains.
According to an independent report from the Crypto Carbon Ratings Institute, they found: The economic value secured in financial applications on each platform was $18,454 per kilowatt hour for Avalanche, $4,395 for Solana and $19.18 for Polkadot.

It is also the most robust, modular and secure of POS chains and joins all other blockchains into a unified network to enable the creation of smart contracts.
Some chains break and are down for hours, even days but when growing an open, vibrant ecosystem this is not acceptable – safety is fundamental, which is why we chose to build our platform on Polkadot.
In terms of speed, scalability, and implementation possibilities, Polkadot offers significantly superior technologies. Gavin Wood, Founder of Ethereum, and Creator of eco-friendly blockchain Polkadot/Kusama is one of our core investors.
