BMW i8 turned into a mobile mining farm

Enthusiast miner from Las Vegas (USA) Simon Byrne,continues to amaze the community by offering unique and original ways to mine cryptocurrency. Earlier, Byrne created a mining farm in Las Vegas with 78 GeForce RTX 3080 video cards, using the world's fastest and most scarce video processor for producing ethereum. This project will allow the crypto enthusiast to receive a net income of about $ 130 thousand per year.

In the next step, Byrne decided to just make fun.over gamers busy with fruitless attempts to buy at least one GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, which at the recommended price of $ 700, sells for more than $ 1200 and is very difficult to find. Now Byrne has purchased a BMW i8 hybrid sports car for $ 147,500 and installed a small mining rig of six GeForce RTX 3080s in the trunk.

Mining system equipped with ASUS B250 boardMining Expert and EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 T2 power supply. According to the miner, this installation will help to earn money even while traveling, but the main reason that prompted him to create another farm on top-end video cards was the desire to annoy gamers.

BMW i8 car battery has power3500 W, and the installation requires only 1500 W, however, during operation, it generates so much heat that the trunk must always be open, which makes traveling combined with mining unlikely, especially in the Nevada desert.
