In Quebec are accustomed to the abundance of renewable energy sources and emphasized cultivate the rational use of all energy resources. When the wave of interest in the mining of cryptocurrencies, there appeared a specialized company Heatmine before her leadership, the question arose – how to dispose of the heat which is a by-product of various equipment? And here’s what they came up with.

Much of a problem with excess heat was not Quebec city and the North 10 months of the year it’s cold or very cold. So when the engineers Heatmine estimated amounts of generated heat, they just moved the mining farm in hangars without heating but with insulation, to warm them in passive mode. But it wasn’t enough and they designed a compact mobile installation which is intended for ordinary miners.

One such plant generates up to 75,000 BTU per hour and simultaneously heats a greenhouse area up to 300 sq. m. This allows, with proper planning, to compensate 75% to 100 % of the cost of electricity for a mining farm. That is, the output of bitcoins is almost free and ripe vegetables of own production at a price much lower than imported. And all this in the midst of winter – experiment with greenhouses was the most productive. But such installations can be used for heating homes, offices, warehouses, etc.

The canadian know-how, there is upside potential on a global scale. It is estimated that maintaining the current scope of generation cryptocurrency side heat will warm up the atmosphere almost all other types of production. And if he doesn’t withdraw, don’t find him rational use, warming the air on the planet on a catastrophic 2 degrees will come in fifteen years. And even then, not to avoid large-scale disasters in which the accumulated virtual wealth will be useless.
