Bitcoin Powered Electrical Outlet

If you ever wanted to charge for electrical usage here is a way to do it with Bitcoin. Shared by Islam Roston on Hackster.io:

Project Idea
Bitcoin and blockchain technology opened a whole lot of opportunities for paying for goods and services but the catch was that it wasn’t fully automated because it lacked easy hardware integration support. However, it got easier with the release of the Koyn library. In short, the Koyn library allows your hardware like Arduino compatible boards to receive and send Bitcoin payments.

One application model for Bitcoin that interests me is pay per service, and one of many applications I decided to get my hands dirty on is renting electricity. So, I started building an electrical outlet that is powered by Bitcoin.

Disclaimer
This project works on HIGH AC voltage which is quite dangerous. Your safety is your own responsibility, including proper use of equipment and safety gear, and determining whether you have adequate skill and experience. You must accept that you and you alone are responsible for your safety and the safety of others if you choose to build this project.
