According to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) 11 Yue 27 released a document showing that the US technology giant Intel to “high-performance Bitcoin mining ” applied for a new patent.
According to reports, Intel’s patent is dedicated to ” utilizing optimized data paths to improve the efficiency of hardware accelerators using SHA-256 hashes ” , reducing the energy consumption of bitcoin (BTC) mining by 15 %.
The document states that “the SHA engine cluster may consume a lot of power, ” adds: “ This patent will use an ASIC– based, energy-efficient SHA engine that consumes less power in the bitcoin mining process. ”
According to Cointelegraph3 May 30 news day, he said this spring, Intel has applied for a patent, aimed at reducing energy consumption encrypt the mining industry, ” to minimize the energy consumption of each hash, and play performance per watt To maximize. “
Earlier this year, Intel partnered with Enigma, a decentralized application (DApp) platform, to launch a blockchaintest network ( testnet ).
In addition, Intel has partnered with multinational SAP to provide solutions for enterprise blockchain systems tocompensate for “ market gaps ” .
In October , Intel partnered with hardware startup Ledger to research innovative digital currency and blockchain solutions.
