Tesla car owners have mined up to $800 a month in crypto assets with their hacked cars

Two Tesla car owners revealed in an interview with cnbc.com news that they had been mining crypto assets using their hacked Tesla electric cars on January 8. San Francisco-based Siraj Raval, owner of 2018 Tesla Model Mannequin 3, mined $800 a month in crypto assets with his hacked electric car. Another owner of the model’s Tesla car, Tesla Mannequin, is based in Wisconsin. Chris Allessi is an electric car dealer who mined monero and bitcoin. Automotive hacking is the manipulation of code in a car’s electronic control unit (ECU) to exploit a vulnerability and take control of other ECU units in the vehicle.
The two Tesla car owners mined Bitcoin, Ethereum and Monero. They explained how they rigged their cars to mine digital currencies:
-Raval connected graphics processing units (GPUs) to his 2018 Tesla Model 3, in order to mine crypto assets with his car.
– Raval also hacked his internal Tesla Model 3 firmware to mine crypto, and concluded from the process that using GPUs was the most profitable method.
– Raval pointed out that tweaking the Tesla system voids the car’s warranty, but brings rewards.
+ Earned up to $800 worth of ether, when its value peaked in 2021.
– Chris Allessi started exploiting his hacked Tesla car from 2018.
– Allessi used an inverter and a Bitmain Antminer S9, and connected them directly to his Tesla Model S battery to mine bitcoin (BTC).
– Allessi used Tesla’s internal on-board firmware to mine the cryptocurrency, monero (XMR).
– He ran mining programs in the browser.
In 2021, a Canadian light electric vehicle (LEV) company, Daymak Inc., began mining cryptocurrency from June 29 with its first prototype Spiritus electric car.
