Popular AI and blockchain firm, Core Scientific has launched a world-class blockchain hosting facility in Calvert City, Kentucky.
This is according to a press release by the company on November 12, 2019. The new facility will create a lot of high-tech and construction jobs for the masses. Core Scientific is building it from an old steel mill that went extinct in 2016.
Thermodynamically designed for efficiency and temperature control, it currently houses over 30MW of blockchain servers. Alongside about 125MW of readily-available power. It is also important to note that one MW is more than enough to power a thousand homes. So 125MW would be able to conveniently power an entire city. Core Scientific is, however, providing electricity to miners, especially Ethereum mining GPUs.
