Popular youtube vlogger of the channel stacksmashing has learnt how to mine cryptocurrency on a games console. Nevertheless, he didn't manage to earn good money on it.
The speed and power of the equipment are the key figures for mining. However, as it turned out, it is possible to mine cryptocurrency on equipment that isn’t designed for this purpose -for example, on a Nintendo Game Boy.
The author of the YouTube channel stacksmashing did just that. The enthusiast used a Nintendo Game Link cable and a Raspberry Pi Pico microprocessor to connect the device to the Internet. The cable was upgraded to avoid the difference between the voltage of the microprocessor and the console.
The Sharp LR35902 microprocessor takes the brunt of the load. It mines about 0.8 hashes per second. Be that as it may, this is about 125 trillion times less than the performance of modern mining equipment, so it is unlikely to make serious money on the invention.
