BitCoin of Things Installation

Bitcoin of Things (BoTs), is an installation formed by daily life objects modified to be used as Bitcoin miners, able to connect to the blockchain, mine the latest block and if successful get the reward, that in May 2018 is 12.5 BTCs (~82000€). BoT speculates with new ways of mining the blockchain that would turn it into a sustainable technology. Not like today where the carbon footprint and energy expenditure it produces is enormous. The possibilities to get the reward are low, but it plays with the idea of finding the philosopher’s stone capable of turning any object into gold (in this case bitcoins). BoT is a lottery with the worst chance of winning ever invented.
