Electric cars and cryptocurrencies seem like incompatible concepts. However, they have something in common: they are considered fast-evolving technologies that can make the world better. Judging by some video on Twitter, the link between crypto and car can be even closer. Project bcoin has proved that it is quite realistic to create your own mobile bitcoin nodi. For this, he also used the Tesla electric car.
Recall-about nodi or node, in essence, can be considered any computer connected to the network and using the P2P protocol for transferring information between nodes in the network about transactions and blocks. From such nodes also consists of a blockchain network. They contain copies of all transactions in the cryptocurrency network and, moreover, are located in the most diverse corners of the world. This guarantees the decentralization and reliability of cryptocurrency.
In the Twitter of the project
Bcoin-focused on the use of alternatives to the main cryptocurrency blockchain in non-standard computing machines. Thanks to the efforts of the bcoin team – bitcoins for some time acquired a fully working mobile node that participated in the approval of transactions. Here is a video of what happened.
Of course, this is also a demonstration of Tesla’s merits, showing the universality of the electronic content of the car. However, the constant use of it as a bitcoin node is far from a good idea. The maintenance of the node requires computing power, but the process of downloading blocks can interfere with the driver to work with the touch screen, where important information is displayed.
In addition, Tesla memory modules sometimes work quite problematic, so downloading a blockchain can only worsen the condition. The bcoin team is aware of all the nuances of the operation of the electric car, so on the official site of the startup there is a warning about “excessive use of the internet connection, processor and memory.”
Tesla owners-do not try to do it all with your car. Irrational use of a salon computer can significantly reduce the quality of driving and even lead to CSN. Bcoin Tesla worked with the blockchain in just a few minutes. It was also enough to record some videos directly with it.
We remind you that crypto is not the first time in the community to use non-Bitcoin computing machines. Last October, bitcoin enthusiast from Portugal Under the nickname 21 is enough created his own cryptomate on the platform Raspberry Pi-based. Even before that, Brazilian Ricardo Reiss built a coffee machine that starts working after transactions in cryptocurrency.
And although all this is hardly meant for mass use – what is happening in the industry still pleases. The more blockchain and cryptocurrencies are associated with the existing things of everyday life, the more closely coins take root in our lives. Accordingly – more and more people will get acquainted with them.
