Being a hobby miner, cloud miner and mining enthusiast I've been thinking about how to utilize the waste heat better and control the noise pollution.

There are multiple issues facing miners.

1) Miners become inefficient for generating profit quite quickly - making them obsolete.
2) Most miners are noisy.
3) Miners generate a lot of heat.

Innovation using immersion cooling is becoming more popular to reduce the noise but it also has the additional benefit in reducing running costs from fans.

Dielectric coolants:

(Non flammable coolants)

With the noise eliminated there is still heat  - (much reduced by the efficiency of immersion cooling) - and there is still rapid obsolescence.

By utilizing the wasted heat energy in industry - some of the cost savings can be offset against the cost of running the miners.

Just some thoughts:

Heating homes and offices (Radiators or underfloor) Temperature of water in under floor heating system is 122.0 - 95 °F   (35 - 50 °C)
Heating water used in hydroponics in cold climates  65 - 80  °F (  18  - 27 °C )
Swimming pool heating   77 – 82  °F (25 – 28°C)
Heat for brewing. 68 to 72 °F (20 to 22 °C)

Bitcoin bitter, Dogecoin Draft, Ethereum Dark...

Even if the mining by itself becomes inefficient - the cost savings of having the byproduct would make it efficient to remain mining.

Temperature could be controlled by over and under clocking.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.
