Crypto Mining Farm Proposed by Designers, Aimed to Be Placed in A Skyscraper Water Park in Iran

Cryptocurrency is an ever-evolving industry that leads to interesting and innovative ideas to push it forward. A recent competition led a few designers to try and work a cryptocurrency mining facility into an interesting place – a skyscraper water park. How did it pan out?

  • Magazine competition leads designers to produce idea for a water park and cryptocurrency mining facility in one.
  • The winner of the competition was an idea to use the skyscraper for a landfill and recycling plant.

The cryptocurrency world is known for a few crazy ideas. When Bitcoin was introduced, the idea was so unique from what was already available to investors, so it should not come as any surprise that the industry keeps coming out with innovative and sometimes strange ideas.

According to a recent article from The Next Web’s Hard Fork, a group of designers wants to take a cryptocurrency mining facility all the way up to a skyscraper water park, which is located in Tehran, Iran.

The whole arrangement that these designers are planning involves the mining farm, swimming pools, a spa, a food court, and a shopping mall. All of these various entities will be wrapped within each other, as the designers hope to create a way to keep the machines cooled off.

The water park would be encased in glass and completely off-grid, though the introduction of so many recreational activities essentially creates a balance between the functionality and the form of the mining facility.

These new plans come at the same time that the US sanctions that have been imposed upon Iran. They were submitted to a skyscraper competition held by eVolo architecture magazine. Ultimately, with the new tower, three key challenges will be easily handled – secrecy, cooling, and energy.

Within the tower, there would be a tank at the top that would be the water supply for the swimming park, ultimately cooling the hardware for the crypto mining in the process. With this water, energy will be generated through hydroelectric turbines.

The point of the water park, food court, and other recreational facilities is to hide the crypto mining that is going on.

If these plans actually go through, the skyscraper would end up being 560 meters higher than Tehran from the Abbas Abad Hills. The designers see the creation of the post-JCPOA tower as something meant for a political statement, contradicting the anti-nuclear Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) sanctions that Iran presently faces.

The sanctions imposed on Iran are creating a lot of problems, though one of the biggest issues is that the country had to cut the Uranium processing plants by over 60%, bringing the total from 19,000 to 6,000. In Tehran, the total plants went down to 5,000, and the economy in Iran have suffered significantly. Sanctions are still being lifted at this point, which is helping the economy to find its footing again.

The designers believe that cryptocurrency should be a part of this rebuilding, and it is hard for foreign entities to get involved with an off-grid tower that conceals their true nature. Hard Fork says that this decision is “another metaphorical jab at the sanctions.” Furthermore, after all of the hardships that the Iranian economy has faced, a little fun couldn’t hurt.

Even though the idea is great on paper, it still was not enough to win at the eVolo competition. Instead, Marko Dragicevic won for an idea of using a skyscraper as a landfill and recycling plant. While the concept may never come true, the idea of a crypto mining water park could be the beginning of some interesting changes.
