Cryptocurrency and HPC specialist EdgeMode chooses 2CRSi’s green high-performance servers

Strasbourg (France) and Chicago (Illinois, USA), 31 March 2021 — EdgeMode Inc., a U.S. specialist in cryptocurrency mining and high-performance computing infrastructure, and 2CRSi (EPA: 2CRSI, ISIN code: FR0013341781), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance energy-efficient IT servers, announced a first deal to build a long-term partnership on best-in-class HPC server infrastructure.

An inaugural order of $1 million had been placed by EdgeMode in February 2021. The computing power has already been deployed in a green data center in the US to accelerate EdgeMode’s mission to deliver low-energy best-in-class crypto mining and HPC cloud infrastructure in the North American market. EdgeMode then placed a second order of $1.25 million in March, to be delivered in April 2021.

In order to plan their short-term rollout of additional capacity, EdgeMode has also formally communicated their intention to order significant additional computing power to be deployed by 2CRSi over the next six months.

This deal is the first step of a strategic partnership that will see EdgeMode and 2CRSi work closely together to provide both green, cost-efficient data center environments and HPC hardware across a range of industries in North America.

EdgeMode founder and CEO Charlie Faulkner said: “This deal provides us with a quick-to-deploy mean of delivering cost-efficient, high performance compute capability to the North American market, at the lowest cost per hashrate. We are thrilled to have 2CRSi as a long-term partner in this endeavour.”

2CRSi co-founder and Chairman Alain Wilmouth said: “We are very proud to be able to serve EdgeMode’s growth ambitions with a green, cost-efficient yet high-performance IT server infrastructure. We are looking forward to a fruitful partnership with their team of HPC experts.”
