Toronto-based Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs) manufacturer Daymak announced it will build the first car to ever mine cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, dogecoin and others while it is parked.
It has also gone the extra mile in crypto support, as it allowed pre-orders for their new offering to be paid in digital currencies including cardano and ethereum in addition to the two earlier mentioned.
The electric car model, named Spiritus, is due for launch in 2023 and will be equipped with a comprehensive cryptocurrency infrastructure that could be the source of promising profits.
In its corporate announcement, Daymak said, “Whereas most vehicles are depreciating while they sit in your garage, the Nebula Miner will make your money while your Spiritus is parked,” convincing clients of the potential the vehicle has.
The Spiritus features
Every unit of the Spiritus electric vehicle will feature Nebular mining hardware and the Nebular crypto wallet. It will come with “an industry-leading GPU in mining price-to-profit and wallet app equipped with staking features for drivers, supporting bitcoin, ethereum, dogecoin and cardano, among others.
Moreover, every single one of the new products will act as a node on the Blockchain and the company has already addressed one of the obvious concerns about crypto mining, which is energy consumption, by making the Spiritus unit enabled with solar charging capabilities.
“With solar charging capabilities, Nebula infrastructure turns Daymak’s Spiritus vehicles into environmentally-friendly crypto miner nodes,” said the company, claiming it is an unprecedented milestone in the rapid evolution of blockchain technologies.
Not the first one though
As impressive as the Daymak new product is, this is not the first time the idea was actually conceptualized.
About six months ago, crypto trader and miner Simon Bryne equipped his BMW i8 hybrid car with a 6x RTX 3080 mining rig. When asked why he did it, he just said it was just to annoy gamers and make some extra money.
