It’s a testament to our growing community and one passionate about their cars.We’re proud of this but just getting started.Amongst the thousands of vehicles connected, we’ve started tracking the first of many leaderboards (to be public soon).

Update 3/9/2022

Hey DIMO Community Member,

A few months ago we introduced DIMO to the world and started the process of growing our project from an idea to a movement. A lot has happened since then, so here’s a few highlights of what we’re working on and what’s to come: 

  • The Movement will become the official monthly newsletter for DIMO 
  • Our first network stats recapping recent growth are published below
  • DIMO launch in Europe will happen over the next for month with some other big milestones like earnings!

Monthly recap of DIMO Network growth with a focus on stats and data from the project.

The last couple of months have brought some really exciting growth 🎉:

  • +18,000 users signed up in the two months since launch, adding 25k vehicles
  • More than 1,100 cars connected to DIMO (all via Smartcar)
  • 6,000+ members joined the DIMO Discord

All this before the upcoming launch for European users this March! Pictures are worth a thousand words, so check out the ones below:

(Hungry for more data? We’re working on a public network explorer for DIMO that will allow anyone to follow the project more closely.)

The first cars coming online to DIMO across the US and Canada.

We’ve seen users collectively log more than 1.1M km of driving since we first allowed people to connect their cars just one month ago.

Product announcements and news with a focus on shipping

We’re excited to announce the DIMO Mobile App is coming this month.

DIMO Mobile app coming soon.

The mobile app will become the primary DIMO app for drivers as the web app becomes primarily a fleet and prosumer tool. 

The DIMO Mobile app will hit the Apple App Store mid-March. With its launch, drivers will gain access to a new feature we’re especially excited for: direct integration with Tesla.  

(Android users can expect the Android app to land a few weeks after we launch on iOS.)

This gives most drivers plenty of time to get their car added before the test rewards period begins at the end of March.

To learn more about the mobile app and what to expect, check out the DIMO Driver’s page.

 Europe Launch

Taking DIMO global 

Since the early days of DIMO, we’ve had a passionate fanbase in Europe. So we’re excited to share that this month, we’ll officially be launching in the EU and the UK!

Read on for the tl;dr on rollout or check out more details here:

 Early March

  • European Vehicle database update – adding makes & models of vehicles sold in the EU + UK
  • Global iOS mobile app launch with Tesla connect soft launch, Smartcar connectivity launches for Europe
  • March 14: Shop.DIMO.Zone opens for Europeans with dedicated supply

 Late March

  • Android app launches globally
  • AutoPi Bluetooth pairing tests and first shipments

 Early April

  • Testnet Rewards will be added to the app (rewards are already being tracked now for users who have connected cars!)

Some final thoughts, asks, and musings


The biggest bottleneck for DIMO right now is hiring. If you know talented people who would be really excited about building at the intersection of web3 and mobility, we’d love to meet them. You can see open jobs here.


Help DIMO grow by forwarding this email to someone who has not yet signed up their car! With the mobile app just a week away, it’s a great time to bring new drivers to the platform. Forward this email and tell them to scroll to the very bottom where they’ll see the “Connect Your Car Now” button.


Do you go to car club meetups? We would love to hear from you. We’re looking to get to know car clubs and car enthusiasts across the country. If you have a meetup to let us know about, you can reply to this email and tell us about your club.  

Other News 

You might have noticed some slightly different branding in the header…DIMO is rebranding, but we’re keeping our catchy name. You may notice some sneak peaks of the branding in some materials, but know that there’s a bigger change coming.

Thanks for reading, and if you haven’t already: Connect Your Car Now

Just when I thought mining crypto could not get any easier than plugging up a box in my home, the dimo miner project rolls out. The concept is simple. The data from automobiles is valuable for several different automobile related industries. These companies will pay to access this data. When you join Dimo, you can order a gadget that looks much like a oversized flash drive that you plug it into your automobile, and earn crypto while driving. (See video below)

Because of my focus on building out the Helium Network, I heard about this project a few months ago, I immediately read their white paper, and signed up for their updates. The rumor is this project will officially launch in early spring of 2022, but you can go ahead and register your car now, here. Unfortunately the car flash drives are sold out but more are expected to be available to order soon.

Check out the documentation and information below, and if this project makes sense for you, I would suggest that you go ahead and visit the DIMO WEBSITE and get your vehicles registered so you will be notified immediately when the flash drives can be ordered and you can start earning tokens by driving your car.


Here is another video I found. This guy says he is expecting to earn $100 A DAY with this automobile miner. I have no idea if he knows what he is talking about, I am assuming he meant $100 a month. If it was a $100 a day and you had a miner in two cars that would be SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS A MONTH in
income. Personally, I would be happy with $100 a month. The automobile miners sell for around $300 the last time they were available. CLICK HERE TO RESERVE YOUR CAR

Below is the video that put this project on my radar when I first read about it and saw this several months ago. The rumor is the next batch of Dimo automobile miners will be shipped out as early as the end of February 2022 and at that time we will be able to start earning crypto from driving our cars.


How Much Can You Earn With the Dimo Miner?

The tokenomics of the Dimo project have not been officially released yet. My understanding from the research I have done is the amount of tokens you earn is going to be dependent on several factors including how many miles you drive, the make and model of your automotobile, etc. I have seen projections as high as a $100 a day. That would be awesome, but that sounds more like wishful thinking, however time has shown us that those that jump in early on mining projects that scale usually profit the most. As far as I am concerned, I am willing to risk $600 to get two of these units as soon as they are available for Dawn and myself.

I don’t want to throw away $600, but I am convinced the project is legititmate and I will make crypto profits from driving my car, exactly how much is yet to be determined at this point. Below is a Dimo Earnings Chart, but until it is explained in detail I dont want to make any assumptions. The token has not even been issued at this point, so if you are reading this in early February when this article will be published, we are VERY EARLY. My suggestion is to click here, and reserve your car so you can be notified when the dimo automobile miner will be avaialbe. You really have no decison to make until you are notified. I believe that the crypto space will continue to provide unique opportunities for visionary entreprenuers.

My plan is to research as many of these opportunities as possible, eliminate the rug pulls and scams, and get in early on as many projects as I can that appear to make since and have strong use cases. My primary focus for the next 12 – 18 months is building out the Internet of Things network building our IHub Global Team.
