Crypto for Good: Mining to Fund Humanitarian UAV Deployment

The slides were off for this presentation unfortunately, and we did our best to recover given the circumstances. As potentially lifesaving innovations become commercially available to law enforcement and emergency responders, a key barrier to adoption is the necessity of competing with conventional budgetary priorities. In the case of Astral AR’s EDNA UAV drone and other always-on GPU-driven device networks, it is possible for the devices to mine cryptocurrency with their idle capacity and thereby defray their own cost of adoption. However, the process of auto-switching mining pools would typically follow a financially-greedy algorithm that distributes hashrate based on various token exchange rates and mining costs and has the potential to adversely impact security and reduce mining incomes for other users. We instead propose an alternate solution: by having the devices probabilistically assign themselves to available currency networks based on the device’s projected hashrate and the current global hashrates of available currencies, we establish that it will be possible to: contribute to the stabilization of hashrates and thus the predictability of mining incomes for participants across each network, diversify the network of miners for relevant currencies away from centralized and dedicated ASIC hardware, and reduce friction for the adoption of lifesaving humanitarian tools such as the EDNA drone.
