According to Intel’s official website, today, Intel announced plans to contribute to the development of blockchain technology and developed a roadmap for energy-efficient accelerators. Intel will participate in and promote an open and secure blockchain ecosystem and will help advance this technology in a responsible and sustainable manner. Intel said they noticed that some blockchains require a lot of computing power, which would require enormous amounts of energy. Intel's customers are looking for scalable and sustainable solutions, which is why Intel is committed to realizing the full potential of blockchain by developing energy-efficient computing technologies. It is reported that the Intel Blockchain Accelerator will ship later this year. Argo Blockchain, BLOCK and GRIID Infrastructure are the first customers of Intel's upcoming products. Intel said the accelerator has little impact on the supply of current products. Intel expects its blockchain accelerator to deliver more than 1,000 times more performance per watt than mainstream GPUs working on SHA-256.
