Electric car manufacturer Daymak Inc has revealed that its upcoming Daymak Spiritus will be the first electric car to mine cryptocurrencies. This announcement was revealed on June 1 in a press release where the company stated its goal for its new line of electric vehicles.
Major Milestone for Electric Cars
The Daymak Spiritus electric car is expected to be released in 2023 and will have a node on the blockchain, a miner, and a wallet. The vehicle will be integrated with Daymak’s Nebula technology making it the first car with mining hardware and cryptocurrency technology programmed within its user interface.
The Daymak Spiritus can mine digital assets like Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and more when it is in a parking position. Additionally, users will be able to pay online bills and other transactions in crypto within the wallet software installed in the user interface of the car.
The wallet also stores cryptocurrencies mined by the Nebula Miner and is securely integrated into the Spiritus interface. Daymak Inc also revealed that the company accepts pre-order payments in cryptocurrencies, including Doge, Ethereum, Cardano, and Bitcoin, making it one of the first Electric car manufacturers.
Speaking on the development, Aldo Baiocchi, President of Daymak, revealed that the Spiritus Car is part of the company’s goals of integrating crypto payments. “The Spiritus car is for those who want more in life, and we are committed to putting our customers ahead of the curve. We envision a future where your highway tolls, your parking, and your drive thru order will be paid directly on the fly with crypto.
He further stated that users would be able to make transactions from their vehicles. Your online bills and your banking can be handled through the same software platform paid in crypto. And whereas most vehicles are depreciating while they sit in your garage, the Nebula Miner will make you money while your Spiritus is parked. The potential applications are limitless,” he concluded.
Automobile Companies Integrating Blockchain Technology
The automobile industry has adopted blockchain technology in recent years, with many car manufacturers deploying it for various purposes. In January, some leading automobile manufacturers, including BMW and Ford, rolled out a blockchain-based Vehicle identity system. This development was subsequently followed by news of leading electric car manufacturer Tesla acquiring $1.5billion worth of BTC and accepting BTC payments. This latest development by Daymak is a good one for the blockchain industry and shows the growing influence of cryptocurrencies in the automobile sector.
