I’ve written before about veox’s cryptocurrency miner. A common question with these beasts is what the hell do we do with all the waste heat. The answers we’ve come up with are:

  • heating (sure thing, Sherlock);
  • drying food.


Tomatoes on a dryer shelf in the mining fridge

We chose tomatoes for our first run, since:

  • we all like them;
  • yield season;
  • if it can dry tomatoes, it can dry anything.

If this works, we’ll try beef next, and (maybe) fish afterwards.


After three days:

Semi-dried tomatoes after three days

A little mushy on first bite. The specific dried tomato taste kicks in after chewing for a few seconds.
