Bitcoin Entrepreneur Installs NVIDIA RTX 3080 Mining Rig in Trunk of BMW i8
Bitcoin entrepreneur Simon Byrne has made a fortune off the cryptocurrency, but in addition to his latest rig, consisting of 78 NVIDIA RTX 3080 graphics cards, he added a BMW i8 to his money making collection. How so? He installed a more compact mining rig into the rear trunk of the hybrid supercar, thus enabling him to earn even while out and about, although considerably less than the $128,088 per year his main setup makes.
Due to the graphics card shortage, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards will cost you at least $1000 brand new, which means this BMW i8 mining rig is worth at least $6,000, even without the cost of the other hardware components. Let’s just hope that Simon has several backup batteries in place, or else he may end up stranded in the middle of nowhere should he embark on a long road trip.
