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.
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.”
