There have continued to be concerns about Bitcoin Mining, a Blockchain activity that requires so much energy and leaves aftermath carbon effects in the society. These concerns have led many analysts and regulators to demand these activities’ orchestrators to use green or cleaner energy, with no effect on the environment. However, Youtube influencer- Stacksmashing is likely unbothered, as he has delightedly announced to his followers that he had converted his Nintendo game console to a bitcoin mining device which will enable him to join the growing list of individuals mining the cryptocurrency.
The Nintendo game console will not solely handle the Bitcoin mining activity
In the video the pseudonymous content creator posted to his followers yesterday, he confirmed that he has now confirmed that he will join the list of Bitcoin miners. The content creator was propelled by Elon Musk’s announcement when the businessman confirmed that Tesla has started accepting Bitcoin as payment for its cars from U.S-based customers. Stacksmashing confirmed that it was at this point that he knew that he had to join the Bitcoin party. However, while the Youtube celebrity’s creativity is applauded, he confirmed that there are still a few challenges.
He announced to his followers that the absence of a wifi or internet plug-in on the game console would make it unlikely to connect with other Bitcoin nodes. However, he is unwilling to back out of his quest, as he has now confirmed that he will be using the external port of the device to connect it to an internet-enabled device. He also confirmed to his followers that the Nintendo console has now been connected to an external computer, which will partly take care of the mining activities like hash rate calculations and others.
Stacksmashing’s new device does not require electricity to mine
The new Bitcoin mining convertible by the content creator is projected to mine Bitcoin in the same light as a typical machine. However, another exciting feature of the device is that it will not require electricity, like every other mining rig. The high electricity requirement of Bitcoin mining has always been compared to that of nations like Chile, a situation that calls for alarm. However, Stacksmashing’s new device will not negatively impact the environment, as he confirmed that he would be using rechargeable batteries to power his mining rigs.
Alternatively, while the YouTuber feels that his new machine will work at the same rate as other Bitcoin mining machines, he is unsure of when it will be able to discover a Bitcoin block. The content creator believes in his machine’s superiority, but unfortunately, projects it to discover a Bitcoin block in trillions of years. While those figures look unrealistic, the fans of Stacksmashing on youtube have continued to praise the Pseudonymous creator, as they earnestly expect more updates from the YouTuber.
