The QC-1 is an Extension of the Q.rad Computing Heater
In addition to the ability to monitor the markets, QC-1 users can activate a heating booster mode when the weather is frigid. Unlike traditional mining rigs, Qarnot claims the crypto heater is noiseless. The system developed by the startup has no fans or hard drives. The software is designed to mine ethereum (ETH), but can be jury-rigged to mine other cryptocurrencies as well. The crypto heater comes with two 8GB Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX580 AMD graphic processing units (GPU). In order to use the miner customers merely connect a wallet address using the mobile platform, and they can start mining.

Due to the popularity of the Q.rad idea, the firm has managed to raise €4.5M from venture firms like Colony Capital. The company has won awards from Raise Lieu du Design, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 Eureka Park Innovators Award, and the Popular Mechanics’ CES 2016.
One Q.rad can heat up a 150 to 300 sq.ft room and devices are used primarily in France in both residential and commercial buildings. Cloud computing clients are already utilizing Qarnot’s resources as well known firms like Disney, Air Liquide, and BNP Paribas have been patronizing the startup’s Q.rad devices for their server operations. The crypto-heater offers the same versatility while earning digital currency revenue…
