When cryptocurrency is mined, it often gives a lot of heat as a result of the powerful hardware that it uses. A French startup has decided to look for a way to use that heat output in houses so that the energy cost can be reduced. Qarnot has created the new type of computing heater which is optimized for the crypto miners. The QCI is able to warm the miner's house safely using a powerful and functional computer inside. QCI's slogan states, "Make heating a source of revenue, not an expense."

The description of QCI says, "The heat of your QC-1 is generated by the two graphics cards embedded in the device and mining cryptocurrencies or blockchain transactions: While heating, you create money. You can watch in real time how crypto markets are trending, on your mobile app and on your QC-1 LEDs."
