CenturyLink has signed a data center deal with CoinTerra to host CoinTerra’s Bitcoin mining operations in CenturyLink data centers.

CoinTerra designs, produces and operates hardware and software that power the Bitcoin blockchain ecosystem.

Bitcoin is a “crypto-currency” that operates on a user-powered, peer-to-peer payment network. The company estimates that more than 15% of the total Bitcoin network runs using CoinTerra hardware.

Ravi Iyengar CEO of CoinTerra said “As the Bitcoin ecosystem continues to flourish, CoinTerra’s continuously expanding mining operations require reliable power and extremely high levels of availability to ensure peak performance.

With CenturyLink, CoinTerra’s growing Bitcoin mining operations are currently housed across multiple data centers, with additional locations scheduled to be brought online in the coming months.
