It’s Possible to Brew Beer While Mining For Bitcoin?
Cryptocurrencies are providing value outside their normal realization. The heat produced by mining has been proving its value for people in other contexts. Homes are using this heat in Siberia to get through the freezing winters there. By leaving a miner in a house, the extreme heat produced could heat up to a whole room.
The heat that mining produces is not being contained at this point but in the future this could be drastically changed. This natural byproduct could be monetized or used to save money in situations such as in Siberia. This could make mining more profitable by further offsetting costs. The uses could also include other tasks such as heating water among other possibilities.
One interesting take on the possible use of this heat is the possible use of it for homebrewing beer. When mashing grain, a very high and specific temperature is required which the mining could assist with. There are a few issues that would need to be addressed before this process could actually happen. Due to the heat needed at such a specific temperature, the operation would have to be a relatively large one. The miners could also serve as an assistant providing a portion of the heat but not all of it. This would allow for better temperature control and ensuring that the miner isn’t fried. By using miners for other activities like this it could push more people to start mining as well which would strengthen various blockchains.
The possibilities are endless when looking at the alternative uses of mining. And who knows, maybe your next cold one will be on crypto.
