The home appliance is tagged “AvalonMiner Inside” and its processing power is 2.8 trillion hashes per second. It is also said that the appliance is powered by artificial intelligence and it has voice command features. The device is also capable of calculating Bitcoin (BTC) mining profitability fluctuation rate in real-time.

According to the report, the device allows users to buy entertainment content and other types of products on the platform of the firm using the coins they’ve mined. While this TV set is allegedly the first blockchain-based home appliances to be launched by the company, some onlookers in the crypto space have shown cynicism towards the invention.

Xiao Lei – a Bitcoin (BTC) analyst based in Beijing, is quoted by SCMP as disparaging the latest move of Canaan Creative as “hype.” He also went ahead to say that it would be more meaningful if the firm is able to incorporate the mining function into already existing television brands.
