HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSXV:HIVE) has announced that it will become a development partner in the Boden Type Data Center (BTDC) research project, described in the press release as “a European Union-funded project with the key objective of demonstrating a range of highly innovative key engineering principles to construct the most cost- and energy-efficient data centers with minimal environmental impact.” Tobias Ebel, Board Director, HIVE, explained:
“Our mission at HIVE is to provide High Performance Computing capacity with environmental responsibility. Our past achievements have been very good but the BTDC presents an opportunity to set new standards for this sector.”
Frank Holmes, Interim Executive Chairman of HIVE, said:
“Large scale HPC, including for mining of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, is a growth market. This research project is designed to provide us one of the foundations to making HIVE a more efficient and profitable operation with the lowest environmental impact.”
Japanese outlet The Asahi Shimbun reports that the Bank of Japan is to “begin substantive testing of digital currency,” and that a central bank digital currency (CBDC) has become “one of the top priority issues,” for the central bank. Takeshi Kimura, the central bank’s department director-general indicated that in its work on the CBDC, the BOJ “would cooperate with the private sector, which may have more in-depth technical knowledge about the issue.” The report further indicates that pressure to keep up with China is also encouraging the central bank to speed up its efforts.
