They explained how they rigged their cars to mine digital currencies:
* Raval connected graphics processing units (GPUs) to his 2018 Tesla Model 3 in order to mine crypto assets with his car.
* Raval has also hacked his Tesla Model 3 onboard internal firmware to mine crypto, and concluded from the process that using GPUs was the most profitable method.
* Raval stressed that the modification to the Tesla system invalidates the warranty of the car, but it pays off rewards.
He earnt as much as $800 ether, when its value reached its highest in 2021.
* Chris Allessi started mining his hacked-out Tesla car from 2018.
* Allessi leveraged a power inverter and a Bitmain Antminer S9, and tied them directly into his Tesla Model S battery to mine bitcoin (BTC).
* Allessi utilized Tesla’s onboard internal firmware to mine cryptocurrency, monero (XMR).
* He ran mining programs within the browser.
In 2021, a Canada-based light electric vehicles(LEV) company, Daymak Inc started mining cryptocurrency from June 29 with its first prototype electric car Spiritus.
