Drones fly at New York's Radio City Music Hall. ERN 10 covers these and other intriguing projects.

Welcome back. First, here's a look at some new satellite experiments involving cryptocurrency and blockchain.

DOGE-1, licensed as WN2XFE, is described as a distributed ledger technology and imaging mission, consisting of one satellite intended to reach lunar orbit and operate for up to two years.

DOGE-1 is a Geometric Energy Corp. satellite “paid for entirely in Dogecoin” — an early “meme” cryptocurrency promoted by Elon Musk.

“With the introduction of Dogecoin, which was created as a joke in December 2013, a whole new crypto category was spawned — the meme coin, cryptocurrencies that associate themselves with an internet joke or pop culture reference.” — CNBC

Geometric describes DOGE-1 as the “first mission to demonstrate Blockchain Technology beyond LEO (low-Earth orbit)” and a “Unique Marketing Opportunity to display media inside the satellite to be down-linked back to Earth.”
