Default Bitcoin Mining Can Aid Sustainable Farming- The Advent of ‘Cryptomatoes’

A new startup has been set up with an ecological premise by the Czech new age crypto exchange, NakamotoX. There are not very many uses for excess heat produced from digital machinery or cryptocurrency mining devices. However, this startup has managed to combine Blockchain technology with farming and has produced an edible batch of tomatoes by diverting the heat of mining machines to a customized greenhouse. Cofounder, Kamil Brejcha, and staff have built a separate space for their Bitcoin mining servers and utilized their excess heat production for growing tomatoes. The project is likely to be followed by a new type of farming technology called ‘Agritechture’, and the results so far have been entirely fruitful with the success of the first batch of what they call ‘cryptomatoes’. Brejcha explains in a tweet, “We have developed something called ‘Cointainer’ which is being placed in the basement and the heat is blown into the greenhouses. More details will be revealed soon”.

One downside to the crypto mining industry is the effect of the machinery’s heat generation on the environment. Most companies do not utilize this heat energy for any productive use which raises the concern for sustainable development among environmentalists and crypto user alike. The initiative that Brejcha and company have taken can create an energy cycle loop where heat from mining helps grow crops and biowaste from the harvest help power machinery. The project solves numerous growing concerns and provides an ecological and self-sustaining solution. Brejcha commented on the cryptomatoes saying, “You will be able to buy (cryptomatoes) in common shops soon but I cannot reveal more details about the brand now”.

The large-scale impact of Agritechture could help build on sustenance farming and energy conservation, two globally alarming problems putting pressure on the environment today. With the significant application in future crop cultivation, cryptomatoes could start a worldwide transformation in farming as we know it.
