BitFury to release light bulbs that mine Bitcoin

Announcements | June 3, 2015 By:

BitFury has announced to bring light bulbs capable of bitcoin mining later this year.

“We believe that the project’s focus should not be on making money from bitcoin mining, but on creating innovative solutions with main purpose to use this product for educational purposes and fun,” said BitFury CEO Valery Vavilov.

BitFury said it intends to invite the community to become a part of its rollout plans, and that it would solicit ideas on how the light bulbs should be marketed to a wider audience as part of a collaborative release.

The goal of the project would be to galvanize interest in bitcoin as a technology, and that making any money on the initiative would be secondary to promoting discovery.

BitFury is a fully integrated bitcoin blockchain infrastructure provider.
