Of Course There’s A Home Heater That Is Also A Cryptocurrency Mining Computer

by 11 months ago

Are you a person whose house is always too cold in the winter, but you also want to mine cryptocurrency? Boy, is today your lucky day. In what may be the most unlikely, yet somewhat logical, pairing of two completely different consumer products ever, we now live in a world that offers a home heater that is also a cryptocurrency mining computer. Like an old computer that has too many windows open, this cryptocurrency mining computer will keep you warm on the coldest of days.

French computing company Qarnot has debuted the QC1 cryptocurrency heater. The thought process here is that cryptocurrency mining computers use tremendous amounts of energy to constantly search for digital money bits on the internet. There have been studies that cryptocurrency mining uses as much energy as the entire country of Denmark. Qarnot says that “the heat of your QC-1 is generated by the 2 graphics cards embedded in the device and mining crypto-currencies or blockchain transactions: while heating, you create money.” The QC-1 has AMD GPUs, Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX580 with 8GB of VRAM.
