Computer manufacturing giant Lenovo will help run the blockchain network for GoChain, a blockchain protocol startup.
Lenovo will lend a hand to GoChain’s network, operating a signing node which “will be the first of its kind to be operated in a liquid immersion data center for cooling,” a Jan. 6 press release said.
An eco-friendly endeavor
Created by a company called Midas Green Technology, the mentioned data center cooling methods reportedly require less energy than other techniques, including air-based temperature control measures, the release noted.
Employing this efficient technology, Blockchain Resources Corp. is constructing eco-friendly data centers where the hardware for Lenovo’s GoChain blockchain node will operate.
Cointelegraph reached out to Lenovo but received no response as of press time. This article will be updated accordingly upon receipt of a response.
Powering blockchains can require significant energy and cost, so, naturally, various people and companies have thrown their hats into the ring in an attempt to make the process more efficient and environmentally friendly.
In February 2018, Cointelegraph reported on Bitcoin ATM provider Cointed and its efforts in the world of green mining.
Technology company Chia also came forward in July 2019 with a green paper on environmentally sensitive mining methods.
