Greeting, long time YouTube listener. About.me/eog
I recently created a blockchain research company. Got my EIN. And I am turning my van into a solar powered mobile node/mining rig for decentralized networks. I travel between san Francisco and seattle on the coast, mostly talking to folks about bitcoin and adoption of various use cases.
I can put up to 750-1000 watts of solar on my roof with 2500 to 10k amp hours of storage. I need to determine if I can run a lightning node or something like the NODL. Maybe a raspberry pi set up. I would like to start with USB miners and scale up as I test and publish research on my mining.
The plan is to start with the lowest powerconsumption, maybe a GPU miner, XYO, or others I may not k ow about. And then over the course of a year scale up. To 1k in panels and 10k in storage.
I would gladly give Voskoin 1st rights to publishing any data and social media related to the mining rig, that comes from this venture. I would even consider tokenizing the ownership of the rig and splitting 50/50 tokens mined and fees earned from validating transactions.
My long term play is to prove concept in a gas powered vehicle, then in 3 years migrate to an electric cargo van from VW or Aptera! And ofcourse they will have autonomous driving, so if you connect the dots you will notice how in 5 years I will be very well positioned for expansion of the mobile mining company.
At minimum proving concept in my van would allow me to then test a rig in a Bus. The disaster relief org I work with, altruistrelief.org is currently moving our kitchen gear from potrero on the US border into Mexico to feed thousands of refugees a day. Our Mobile kitchen could not only support feeding and sanitation for a refugee camp, (or ecoological restoration camp) it could also provide internet access provide internet access and power to the refugee camp.
I have support from the San Francisco State University Crypto Startup School and the LGBTQIA Business Center in San Francisco as well. I have access to a solar engineer and welder for the installation of all the hardware, I just need a 3 stage design for building out the rig and maybe a to make a friend who wants to be part of this!
