The Australian uses four Radeon R9 390 graphics cards for mining and home heating. And with funds from Ethereum mining, he pays electricity bills



Many cryptocurrency miners set as their goal only, in fact, production and earnings, but if you approach the matter wisely, then the heat generated during the operation of video cards can be used for something useful. For example, for home heating. This is exactly what one Australian did.

According to the source, one of the users of the mainland Australia installed four old Radeon R9 390 video cards in the server case and connected them to the heat pump of his home: in the cold season, cooled air from the street enters this case, heats up in it and then is carried by a heat pump through rooms, heating them. And the income from Ethereum mining (the performance of each video card is about 30 MH / s) goes to cover electricity bills.

The total power consumption of video cards is about 900 watts, at the time of the test launch and with an Ethereum cost of about $ 900, such a system produced cryptocurrencies in the equivalent of $ 3.8 per day – and this was enough to pay half of the electricity bill. Now, with Ethereum costing around $ 2,500, the pragmatic Australian is clearly paying the bill in full – with a little more pocket money left. Interestingly, in the warm season, the mining system runs on energy generated by … solar panels.
