The Daymak Spiritus electric car can mine cryptocurrencies using NVidia RTX 3070 GPUs. The eccentric (and must I say attractive) car is also equipped with solar panels. That 100 Watt solar panel array isn’t enough to directly power the motor, but it can power on-board electronics or protect the car’s battery from self-discharge when it isn’t in use (assuming that the solar panel is wired to charge the main battery).
The 3-wheeled car resembles a motorcycle from the rear, and at the front it looks like a small sports car. It has one wheel at the back which strongly resembles a motorcycle wheel and it offers up to 150 HP. The price of the Daymak Spiritus starts at $18,495 and it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in only 1.8 seconds. That’s incredibly strong acceleration for the price, but is likely due to the fact that it is a small (and probably lightweight) two-seat car.
The Daymak Spiritus can travel 400 miles per charge, which is more than the average gasoline-powered sedan. Generally, small electric cars don’t offer the best range, so it’s interesting to see such an unconventional offering that tries to combine the best of both worlds. The car also has scissor doors (they open straight up) that provide for a more exotic supercar-like experience.
Regarding cryptocurrencies, it can not only mine them with whichever power source you used to charge the car (it could be solar, wind, or anything else), it will also be able to pay for drive-throughs and tolls on the fly. The automaker also accepts Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, and Cardano (ADA).
