Hey, if one could get the car to mine enough Bitcoins to pay for the monthly payment that would be pretty great. Actually it’d be legitimately revolutionary. Something good may indeed come out of Musk’s crony enterprise.
“Look at my new sweet ride…And it literally pays for itself!”
(From The Coin Telegraph)
Just when Bitcoin miners thought mining on the phone and hydro mining were revolutionary, an owner of a Tesla S electric car model is using the free power from the supercharger of his vehicle to mine the leading cryptocurrency Bitcoin. To do this, the owner installed a Bitcoin mining computer in the trunk of the car. The mining rig is then charged by the car’s supercharger while it mines Bitcoin.
This is an interesting way to mine cryptocurrencies, but it could be very lucrative for the owner as his operating cost while mining the digital currencies is virtually zero. His only major investment is the cost of the mining rig itself, as well as the associated equipment and accessories.
