British Invented a Device For Mining the Monero From the Air

Forget about video cards! The British Max Dovey, an artist and researcher at the Institute of Network Cultures, had a better idea: he invented a device for mining cryptocurrency directly from the air.

The device was called a spirometer. It measures the volume of inhaled air and exhaled carbon dioxide and then hashes the obtained data. The hashed information is transferred to the computer, which is the next part of the blockchain.

Thus, one breath allows the PC to perform a number of computational operations, and the amount depends on both the number of breaths and the intensity of inhalation. On average, for a single breath, the computer produces a thousand operations.

Turning the act of breathing into an active miner on the blockchain network encourages us to consider more sustainable and psychological methods to maintain blockchains

- Dove wrote in his artist statement.

With the help of a spirometer, Monero can be mined, but it will not be possible to obtain a more or less weighty amount of cryptocurrency so far. In the world in one second passes 500 million of similar computing operations.

The creative project began to develop in the last year, and during this time he gave the British just a dollar. However, according to Dovey himself, the meaning of the device is not at all in making money. The device should demonstrate that the mining, with its irrepressible appetite for energy consumption, has other ways of development.

It should be noted that this is not the first project known for alternative mining. Early Dutch explorer Manuel Beltran with his team developed a suit for the production of altcoins with the help of the warmth of the human body.
