Core Scientific, the company that focuses on blockchain infrastructure and artificial intelligence released news that they have just opened a new massive Blockchain complex in Calvert City, Kentucky.

Core Scientific are using an old steel mill establishment that was in action until 2016 and are basically giving it a new life. The complex consists of buildings that are designed with a concrete purpose and are thermodynamically set up towards efficient temperature management.

The CEO of Core Scientific, Kevin Turner shared their goal:

“We are investing in the infrastructure and software solutions that help our customers maximize the performance of their servers. Our goal is to provide the optimized environment for the latest generation of blockchain servers, and create capacity for global customers to securely host in the stable US market.”
