True, but it does keep things more centralized. That being said with pool closures and more it will be difficult to keep it decentralized to any extent anymore.
BitFury will be going over more of their data center building with me soon. It will be interesting to see. They have been on a roll. When they got Allied Control for immersion cooling and working on more renewable energy resources. Valery has said they are in it for the long haul and they are doing some great stuff.
I think KnC gets so much crap due to the customers they ripped off by taking orders and building the data centers for themselves instead. They have several lawsuits world wide against them for that. I wonder how they will fall out.
