It is known that the mining of crypto-currencies is energy intensive. To overcome this problem widely criticised by the defenders of the environment and to limit the waste of energy, some contractors have wanted to take advantage of the heat emitted by the blasting. By growing such tomatoes !
Long live the crypto-tomatoes
This is a photo published by Kamil Brejcha, co-founder of the platform for the exchange Nakamoto X, which showed a greenhouse of tomatoes. These are cultivated using the heat generated by the mining of crypto-currencies. It was necessary to know that the computer servers emit heat levels sufficiently substantial to grow tomatoes. Moreover, Kamil Brejcha is not the only one to have had this beautiful idea, as the two Sibs had already tried the experiment.
Who would imagine that mining cryptocurrencies and agriculture can work together? The first batch of cryptomatoes is ready to be harvested. We are using the excess heat for the tomato greenhouse and it is working:-) pic.twitter.com/U7qqKTshqO

So we speak of crypto-harvest, as he explained : “Who could imagine that the mining of crypto-currencies and agriculture could work together ? We are ready to perform the first harvest of cryptomatoes. We use the excessive heat we use to heat our greenhouse tomatoes, and it works. “
An ambitious project
Kamil Brejcha explained that he had developed a system for using the heat generated by the mining of crypto-currencies and automatically redirect to the greenhouses. This process requires no expenditure of electricity : “in addition, we produce our own energy. The mining operations are powered by energy produced 100% bio-waste. We rely, therefore, on a circuit of energy completely closed. “

For the moment, it is a project that could be the starting point for a new way to grow fruits and vegetables. The tomatoes would be the point of departure for a new way to enjoy the heat created by the mining of crypto-currencies. After all, why not !
