I was thinking to post this article myself...he also owns another crypto mining rig with no fewer than 78 RTX 3080 graphics cards. He's kind of a douche when he says "I do it to irritate gamers". Why the need to even say that? If you're into crypto mining, then fine but what does he have against gamers?

because when miners article get published on a website with comments allowed at the bottom, its always the same type of comments : gamer raging against miner.
So he probably getting a lot of mean comments if he's on social media platform.

and this is since mid-September 2020 and not going to stop anytime soon.

"The only "issue" is that the rear hatch/trunk needs to stay open, or the mining rig will overheat."

Yeah, not that big of a deal...poorly thought out apparently.

He only did it as a joke then removed it after. He didn't actually plan to mine out of his car lol

So pop open the hatch when you get to a rest stop or gas station? Think he has nevada plates so I can't imagine a good time to just leave your car alone with the hatch open.
