Evergreen is the simplest way to supportthe Chia Network.
Chia uses a novel smart transaction protocol called proof of space and time, which operates on specially prepared Hard Drives. Bitcoin and Ethereum use proof of work, which operates on high powered computers like ASICS and GPUs. A large hardrive uses about 10W of energy, whereas ASICS and GPUs often use hundreds of watts.
By using physical computers to back the network, chia is very difficult to breach. An attacker would need to own a majority of the total supply of hard drives in order to overcome the existing network of farmers. This is what drives confidence in the platform over the long term.
