It is being reported by BitcoinNews that a French startup has created a product to mine crypto while using the excess heat to warm your home.
The QC 1 crypto-heater comes configured to mine Ethereum but can be modified to mine multiple different cryptocurrencies. The creator discovered this process after trying to heat his bathtub with excess crypto heat, but found it even then to be too much.
By turning his system into a product, he found that excess crypto heat could effectively be used to warm a residential area. Though a little pricey at 2,900 euros plus shipping, the product can pay for itself in time given both the heat and crypto output.
Will units like this be the wave of the future? Wouldn’t anyone want to warm themself while earning cryptocurrency? Stay tuned here to Chepicap for any updates!
