US resident Siraj Raval has found a way to mine cryptocurrency using his Tesla Model 3 electric car.
This is reported by CNBC.
An enterprising American installed a cluster of GPUs in the trunk of his electric car and supplied them with power from a battery. Raval entrusted the management of the mining system to an Apple Mac mini M1 computer connected to an outlet on the central console of the machine.
Thus, he found a way to save on electricity. He explained that Tesla owners can charge their electric vehicles at discounted rates at Supercharger stations. Mining allowed Raval to earn thousands of dollars in just a year.
According to him, it takes from $ 30 to $ 60 per month to charge, and he launches mining for about 20 hours a day. According to Raval, in 2021, he earned from mining the Ethereum cryptocurrency from $ 400 to $ 800 per month, depending on the rate of the cryptocurrency.
