Zee Zheng

SINGAPORE — June 16, 2022 SpaceChain today announced that co-founder and CEO Zee Zheng has been named by Forbes as a notable honoree of the Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia Class of 2022. Over 4,000 nominees under the age of 30 applied to be on this year’s list, and the final 300 were selected and vetted by Forbes journalists and industry veterans, including some of the most active venture capitalists and successful business leaders in the region.

As a distinguished honoree under the enterprise technology category, Zheng was selected based on a list of criteria including leadership demonstration, entrepreneurial spirit embodiment synonymous with Forbes, and success potential in the space and blockchain industries.

Since 2017, milestones and achievements that SpaceChain has accomplished under Zheng’s leadership include — launching a testbed for blockchain multisignature authentication service to the International Space Station (ISS) and executing the first multisignature blockchain transaction in space, bringing the Ethereum platform to space, and helping commercial enterprises and non-profit organizations leverage space as a platform for innovation.

“It’s an incredible honor to make it to the Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list this year, and I am dedicating this accolade to every member of the SpaceChain team located across the continents who has shared the same beliefs as I do right from the start,” said Zee Zheng. “The democratization of space, combined with the decentralization of blockchain technology, has accelerated the arrival of the New Space Economy. We will continue to advance our decentralized satellite infrastructure (DSI) vision going forward, as we extend our space-as-a-service capabilities to enterprises and communities globally and build a better world for mankind in outer space.”

According to Citigroup, the space industry is expected to reach US$1 trillion in annual revenue by 2040, as launch costs continue to decrease, which will create more opportunities for technological expansion and innovation.
