Canadian light electric vehicle maker Demak has announced an upcoming electric car that can charge or park Bitcoin, Ethereum and Doge.
According to the firm’s June 1 announcement, the “Spiritus” electric car is set to debut in 2023 and will be equipped with “an industry-leading GPU in mining price-to-profit.” However, details are sparse on what the specific capabilities of mining hardware are.

Each Spiritus will be an “eco-friendly crypto miner node”, which includes Demack Nebular Mining Hardware, Nebular Crypto Wallet and Solar Charging Capabilities. is merciful postponed that, unlike other vehicles, the Spirit will not be a depreciable asset:
“While most vehicles are depreciating while you sit in your garage, Nebula Minor will give you money while your Spirit is parked.”
Despite the technological achievement, it may be uneconomical (or at least not particularly profitable) to mine various cryptocurrencies in the form of small-scale consumer rigs that are likely to fit in a car.
