KYOTO selects CUDO Compute to manage blockchain infrastructure, reiterating commitment to becoming 100% carbon-negative

KYOTO, the world’s first blockchain built to scale the voluntary carbon market, has expanded its collaboration with a distributed decentralized cloud network, CUDO Compute as it looks to enhance efficiencies, drive sustainable business initiatives, and harness green computing power.

From the outset, KYOTO’s mission has been to create a powerful ecosystem that reduces waste and emissions whilst improving productivity levels. In contrast to the heavy reliance of up to 70% on centralized computing platforms by other blockchain networks, this strategic partnership will enable KYOTO to completely decentralize its network nodes. By eliminating dependence on a single data center, the move will improve business resilience, mitigate risk, and establish an open gateway for KYOTO's decentralization efforts.

Empowering KYOTO’s sustainability ethos

At its core, this partnership will empower KYOTO to optimize underutilized computing power by leveraging CUDOS' distributed network of data centers and service providers across multiple geographies. Meanwhile, the venture will also create inroads to new markets and allow KYOTO’s blockchain to scale safely and securely, increasing demand levels from creators looking to build on its network.

Global industries are increasingly recognizing both the commercial and environmental advantages of distributing workloads across multiple locations, instead of relying on a centralized site. Kyoto's partnership with CUDO aligns with these shifting societal drivers around business consumption and the emergence of the gig economy model.

More computing for less carbon

As an organization working towards net zero, eliminating the emissions from KYOTO’s own IT operations plays a significant part of the journey. Cloud computing is already a cleaner and welcome improvement on its original counterpart as less hardware, running fewer workloads, means less electricity consumed. However, cloud data centers still need electricity to power them. That’s where greener, more efficient, and more sustainable cloud computing approaches methods such as those offered by Cudo come in.

Frank Morey, Co-Founder of Kyoto expresses his enthusiasm for the partnership:

“Having partnered with CUDO Compute previously, as part of their bid to reduce their own carbon footprint, this latest project is an important step in our commercial relationship as it will accelerate our journey towards becoming a key driving force behind the Regenerative Finance community. As we grow, partnering with like-minded organizations that share our commitment to accelerating Web3 sustainability and spearheading the fight to preserve our planet – becomes ever more critical.

“CUDO’s ethos directly aligns with our goals, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them as we scale our growing network.”

Gary Negus, Business Development Manager at Cudo Compute adds:

“CUDO and KYOTO, are both equally committed to advancing the sustainable use of the planet's resources eco-friendly Web3 initiatives. CUDO helps organizations to more efficiently resource utilize compute infrastructure that is already resident in data centres around the planet. By accessing a wider pool of available infrastructure our partners are able to select the ideal combination of function, price and location reducing server requirements for a more sustainable business experience both economically and environmentally with added benefits from carbon footprint reduction and waste heat reclamation.

“By partnering with CUDO, KYOTO is building a pioneering blockchain network that is resiliently spread across separate datacentres, spanning multiple continents without any dependency on a single common datacentre operator. Kyoto is staying true to its commitment to decentralization and sustainability without sacrificing commercial and operational value.
