    Seagate 'exploring' possible new line of crypto-specific hard drives

    The emergence of storage-based cryptocurrency Chia has set the cat amongst the pigeons in the storage industry, causing a run on high-capacity hard drives and aggravating existing supply issues. One market player in particular has taken note.

    In an email Q&A with TechRadar Pro, to be published in full tomorrow, storage hardware giant Seagate revealed it is keeping a close eye on the space, with a view to potentially launching a new line of purpose-built drives.

    Asked whether companies might develop storage products specifically for cryptocurrency use cases, Jason M. Feist, who heads up Seagates emerging products arm, said it was a possibility.

    Feist said he could offer no concrete information at this stage, but did suggest the company is exploring this opportunity and imagines others may be as well.
