Microsoft developed a revolutionary patent on a cryptocurrency system based on data derived from human activity. This solution can be treated as an alternative to a highly energy-consuming system Bitcoin.
Cryptocurrency based on human activity
The mechanism of its operation is extremely simple - to take advantage of the new solution the user must have a device with an appropriate sensor examining the activity of his body.
It can be, for example, a smartphone or a smartwatch. The selected device then carries out the tasks set by the system server, and uses the data from human activity.
Then the data is verified by the system and awarded with cryptocurrencies.
How it works?
Microsoft has seen tremendous potential in human body activity that can be successfully used in the process cryptocurrency mining.
However, it should be emphasized that the thing is not purely physical tasks, but above all ordinary daily activities, such as watching ads or using various types of internet services.
Microsoft has used the fact that the brain wave or body heat emitted by a user as a result of their tasks can be used during the mining process.
A cryptocurrency system compatible with a specific device will be able to analyze data derived from body activity, qualifying it or not to pay cryptocurrencies.
In other words, Microsoft's idea assumes that human activity can be used in the process of mining cryptocurrency.
Computing power can be increased or decreased by the system, depending on the activity generated by the tasks performed.
The human activity that Microsoft decided to use can challenge the powerful computing power that it generates, among others bitcoin, but it has a level of security comparable to the Proof of Work system.
Thus, users, completely unknowingly, can contribute to solving computationally difficult problems.
