Application: Energy optimization platform for cryptocurrency mining (Patent ID: US20240104460A1)

The patent filed by Bank of America Corp. focuses on energy optimization in cryptocurrency mining. The computing platform described in the patent receives cryptocurrency requests with gas prices and key performance indicators (KPIs), inputs this data into a mining optimization model to determine an energy mix for processing the requests. This energy mix consists of cost-effective energy sources to support a data center processing cryptocurrency requests. The platform then sends commands to the data center to process the cryptocurrency requests using this energy mix, optimizing energy consumption and costs.

Additionally, the patent outlines features such as training the mining optimization model with historical data, updating the model based on user feedback, and identifying accuracy levels to control model updates. Users can also provide energy mix preferences, selecting specific energy sources for processing cryptocurrency requests. The patent emphasizes the importance of energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness in cryptocurrency mining operations, aiming to improve overall sustainability and operational efficiency in data centers.
