SpaceChain December 2020 Report

ANNOUNCEMENT

Funding for R&D

Together with Addvalue Innovation and Alba Orbital, the coalition will jointly develop a decentralised satellite infrastructure (DSI) that powers a blockchain payload at its core to enable direct tasking of a satellite in real-time.

The EUREKA project is expected to commence in early 2021.

Exchange Listing

SPC v2 is now supported on Biteeu & Bittrex! The swap has already taken place and existing token holders will now carry v2 tokens in their wallets.

New members in SpaceChain Alliance Consortium

Modularity Space and Exobotics are the 2 latest members to join SpaceChain’s Decentralised Satellite Infrastructure (DSI). The DSI was conceived to bridge this gap by bolstering the efficient allocation of resources across the space industry.

Modularity Space is able to provide customers with an affordable modular multi-mission bus, with on-orbit refurbishment capabilities and full turn-key mission solutions.

Exobotics on the other hand, will be leveraging its software and hardware that is scalable, modular and tuned for the challenges of operation in extra-orbital environments.
