Probably because the initial announcement was met with a certain degree of mockery and disbelief, Daymak now educates the public about the benefits of using an electric vehicle for crypto mining. Between June 29 and July 29, it’s offering a live feed of the Spiritus prototype doing just that. As of the time of press, the prototype has made a little over $23, which, granted, it’s not a lot, but it’s free money.
“Daymak Spiritus will be the first car in history to continuously make money for its owner,” Daymak boldly states. The prototype is mining for popular crypto like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Doge.
Cryptocurrency mined when parked or charging will then be used for small stuff like parking tolls or buying coffee on the way to work. More importantly, though, it will be crypto mined with zero impact on the environment because Spiritus is emissions-free, whereas today’s mines are energy-intensive. The month-long livestream will serve to educate the public on cryptocurrency and the need to take mining in a more sustainable direction. It is the future, after all.
The Spiritus three-wheeler is just one of the many LEVs Daymak aims to bring to market, part of the Avvenire lineup. It also includes an e-bike, a motorcycle, and a flying car.
