Project 9 – SkyGold

Project SkyGold (proposed not accepted yet – status 10/2017)   

Project Owner: Dr. Iona Cozmuta

Core Team and roles: Dr. Iona Cozmuta , Nick Gogerty, François Sonnet, Christopher Altman, Michael Casey, (to be determined)

Long term vision: To ultimately claim SolarCoin from orbital solar panels―from operational satellites, International Space Station, etc―in real time, through having a node in space. The initial target is the ISS (International Space Station) and its 80KW of panels.

The future development of a robust economy in Earth’s orbit needs to rely on a currency supporting ground to orbit and/or orbit-to-orbit transactions. SolarCoin could represent a very attractive candidate supporting such transactions. SolarCoin’s global mission to incentivize solar energy and international footprint make it ideally placed for this. SolarCoin also has the lowest known carbon footprint for a digital currency.

Proposal to UN from NASA to declare SolarCoin as the official currency of low earth orbit.

Goals: To establish SolarCoin as the de facto currency for LEO and beyond.

Amazing things that could happen if goals are fully met: The development of a robust and resilient, completely independent space-based economy, reaping invaluable benefits to improve life on Earth, and beyond low-Earth orbit.

Additional awareness of SolarCoin making it a more effective tool for incentiving Solar energy and real time earth monitoring via the ElectriCChain project.
