The term shitcoin, used for coins with little value and no purpose in the cryptocurrency world, seems to have turned into reality. Using a toilet in South Korea can pay for your coffee or get you a cryptocurrency called Ggool at a university in South Korea where human waste is used to power a building. Cho Jae-weon, professor of urban and environmental engineering at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), has designed an eco-friendly toilet attached to a laboratory that uses feces to produce biogas and fertilizer.
A real Shitcoin came true with an eco-friendly project
The BeeVi toilet reduces water use by using a vacuum pump to send feces to an underground tank. There, microorganisms break down the waste into methane, which powers the gas stove, hot water boiler, and solid oxide fuel cell, becoming an energy source for the building. “If we think outside the box, excrement has valuable value for making energy and fertilizer. I put this value into ecological circulation,” he said.
Cho devised a cryptocurrency called Ggool, which means honey in Korean. Each person using the eco-friendly toilet earns 10 Ggools per day. Students can use the currency to purchase a variety of products on campus, from freshly brewed coffee to instant noodles, fruit and books. Students can buy the products they want in a store and scan the QR code to pay with Ggool. For more coin news Cryptocoin. com “DOGE Crashed Due To This Altcoin!
