When it debuts in 2023, the Daymak Spiritus will be the first digital car to mine cryptocurrency. The electric vehicle is expected to accept a variety of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, and Cardano.
Daymak revealed that their new model, the Damak Spiritus, would include cryptocurrency mining capabilities. A feature that would allow electric car owners to mine a variety of cryptocurrencies while the car was charging.
According to Keith Strier, NVIDIA’s VP of Worldwide AI Initiatives, “the idea has tremendous potential because we’re looking at not thousands, but tens of millions of supercomputers in these cars.”
While Tesla could theoretically add this feature to their vehicles, Daymak’s President, Aldo Baiocchi, stated in a recent interview that he believes that being a smaller company benefits them:
“Because we are a smaller company, we can move much faster than Tesla. Tesla is the market leader in four-wheeled vehicles. We’re aiming for the three-wheeled market. We believe we can outperform all of our competitors in that segment.”
In terms of the crypto that can be mined, Baiocchi stated that they will be using the best mining available at the time, and users will be able to settle with a number of coins that will go directly to their account.
The vehicle is a Daymak Spiritus, a three-wheeled electric vehicle with optional autonomous driving features, Wi-Fi connectivity, air conditioning, a 12-speaker stereo system, and solar panels.
This new cryptocurrency mining avenue could provide an innovative way to mine cryptocurrency while also potentially addressing some of the sustainability issues that cryptocurrency has faced. The electric bar may be a more environmentally friendly way to mine cryptocurrency, and according to Baiocchi, some of the energy comes from solar, as well as being a low-power electric vehicle powered by green energy.
The Daymak Spiritus, the first electric car to mine cryptocurrency, has already sparked interest in Canada and the United States, as well as worldwide orders. Daymark’s President revealed that they had over 7,000 reservations on their books, and the company’s goal is to reach one billion dollars by mid-September.
