    Shared as a tweet by Marc van der Chijs directly from the Blockchain summit, this light bulb automatically mines bitcoin when screwed in. We’re not sure just yet whether this light bulb relies on WiFi or Bluetooth, or if it even mines enough bitcoin to cover the lighting costs, but the idea itself acts as humble introduction to the internet of things – or it could be a friendly jab at 21.co’s Bitcoin in everything attitude. Bitfury isn’t all bitcoin light bulbs, though, the company claims to have already “delivered three prior generations of silicon chips, and has a roadmap to double performance-per-watt every 6-12 months.” This may mean that by 2020, bitcoin-mining household items could be an everyday way to handle microtransactions.
