The SpaceChain operating system will be available to anyone, anywhere in the world, all while remaining secure and immutable through proven blockchain cryptography. In doing so, SpaceChain’s vision is to remove barriers and allow a global community to access and collaborate in space.
The SpaceChain Journey
Finished Qtum integration on the SpaceChain OS.
Started integration of Ethereum (ETH) on the SpaceChain OS so that it is able to support ETH and its Dapps. Work in progress.
Released both English and Chinese versions of the SpaceChain OS documents on GitHub.
Completed the final version of the space node hardware board for the second launch.
SpaceChain has made partnerships with more than 10 space and blockchain companies.
Completed the development of the hardware board. The second-generation Qtum-based blockchain node was launched into space on 25 Oct 2018.
Started testing the functions of the space node in orbit. Work in progress.
Send me updates on SpaceChain
SpaceChain is building the world’s first open-source satellite network to enable a next-generation infrastructure for blockchain industry. This mesh node constellation of low earth orbit micro-satellites will serve as a decentralized infrastructure for the blockchain industry. SpaceChain’s open-source operating system — SpaceChain OS — converts single-operator satellites into multi-tenant ones, allowing users to develop different types of space-based applications on a single satellite.
The OS provides a blockchain sandbox that enables dApps developed on this platform to run securely and independently without any interference. Thus, developers worldwide are able to utilize the platform for rapid development, testing and deployment of decentralized applications (dApps), including cryptocurrency exchanges, global real-time sensor arrays, ultra-secure data storage, true peer-to-peer encrypted messaging, or applications we haven’t even dreamt of yet.
Initially, when we designed the blockchain sandbox, we integrated fundamentals from Qtum’s smart contract platform and SylixOS’s open-source real-time operating system into the SpaceChain OS. Additionally, for better interoperability, we have also integrated Ethereum’s smart contract platform with our OS. In time, we will integrate our OS with other blockchain smart contract platforms as we want our system to be available for all communities. As blockchain technology continues to advance, we will constantly make upgrades to our systems.
