I had a chat with Guillaume and he raised the concern of energy consumption
on blockchain platforms.

I had a little look, and realized this platform runs on Etherium, which has
a significantly lower energy footprint
than bitcoin, but still a rather high footprint. You can see the
consumption charts through years here:

According the above link, energy per transaction on etherium is ~40kWh,
which is about 6EUR/transaction
on my electricity bill, and to be that's way too high of a price and
electricity consumption.

I think then my vote would be a no wrt. this platform.
