Move over, Tesla – there’s a new electric carmaker on the blockchain.
Although in recent times, journalists and ill-informed critics have slammed Bitcoin (BTC) mining for being energy-intensive and a strain on the environment, Canadian electric vehicle maker Daymak is planning a car that will mine the cryptocurrency while charging.
Currently, Daymak specializes in electric scooters only but is planning its move into the automotive industry.
Daymak Announces Avvenire Spiritus
On Tuesday, electric car manufacturer Daymak announced that its new Avvenire Spiritus model features the capability of mining cryptocurrencies, such as BTC and even Elon Musk’s favorite meme-crypto, Dogecoin (DOGE).
The innovative automobile should hit the market sometime in 2023, and Daymak is already accepting pre-order payments in cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum (ETH) and Cardano (ADA), in addition to Dogecoin and BTC.
And while the Avvenire Spiritus is yet to begin production, Daymak has received more than $350 million of pre-orders, with the Bitcoin-mining three-wheeler anticipating its launch in the next few years.
Daymak Introduces the Nebula Miner
Cryptocurrency mining is the energy-intensive process through which computers solve complex puzzles to secure crypto networks and create coins.
The technology, which Daymak calls the Nebula Miner, is yet to secure a patent. However, Daymak claims that the Nebula Miner will go to work whenever the vehicle is charging.
“Whereas most vehicles are depreciating while they sit in your garage, the Nebula Miner will make you money while your Spiritus is parked,” Aldo Baiocchi, President of Daymak.
Further, Daymak is planning to link the car to a Nebula Wallet that will allow owners to collect, store and transact with the cryptocurrencies their car has mined.
Undoubtedly, it is safe to say that Daymak is bullish about the future of not just electric vehicles but cryptocurrencies, too.
