How does Physical Node consume so little power? ($0.08/day in the US)

Despite consuming much less power than other mining devices on the market, Node is not less powerful by any means. It is something else entirely.

Node earns crypto by powering a new type of protocol (Proof of Stake, for our fellow nerds out there), one that consumes substantially less energy. This means hash rates don’t apply, and you’re not in a duck-swinging battle to see who’s got the biggest, baddest supercomputer.

Therefore, Node needs just 1.5kwh a day to run, so if you live in the USA, it will cost you less than 8 cents to keep Node running all day long. Node is the most low maintenance housemate/pet you’ve ever had.
