On March 10 the co-founder of the exchange Nakamoto X, Kamil Brejcha, revealed a photo of large bunches of tomatoes that were grown using excess heat from cryptocurrency miners. Mining rigs and computer servers, in general, give off a decent amount of heat and many cryptocurrency proponents have used this resource to heat homes, and other types of solutions. Brejcha explains the “cryptomatoes” became a reality after they developed a system that helps blow excess heat into the greenhouse.

“Who would imagine that mining cryptocurrencies and agriculture can work together?” Brejcha asks his followers on Twitter.

For me it's absolutely amazing how the progress goes forward and how the new technologies can be used in different ways. What are your thoughts?

It's so nice idea to connect new technologies with the "old" business and get the cumulative effect. We just can see how we are moving towards the better life and the future is already here.
I think this energy can work not only for tomatoes and plants in general but also, for example, for chicken farms or any energy-consuming fields.

It`s good that mining companies can gain some extra revenue by selling the heat they produce.That extra income will be quite small,but it will make crypto mining more profitable and more attractive to new investors.
The problem with energy consumption remains and i wish that more mining companies will invest in technologies that produce green energy.By the way,Cryptomatoes is a pretty good brand.

I wonder how many studies was done on the "outgassing" of these electronic chips and the different toxic materials that are released, when these ASIC chips are ran at such high temperatures? There are even some rumours where heated computer electronic components are linked to carcinogenic sources.

How will this influence the food that we grow in near proximity to these electronic devices?

interesting concept, not sure how successful it will be, possibly not to the level of production as mining is limited.

Could you please explain this point about limited mining?
