Space constellation blog
Tech billionaires dominating the satellite constellations arena can be a worrying concern in the future. Take a look here at where the space industry is today in terms of these constellations, highlighting some benefits of harnessing their collective power as well as how SpaceChain aims to contribute towards the democratisation of space through our very own distributed, decentralised satellite network.
A visit to Scotland House in London
SpaceChain CCO Nick Trudgen had a meeting with the Director of Space Hub Sutherland at Scotland House in London. Space Hub Sutherland is one of Highlands and Islands Enterprise’s regional projects!
Topics of discussion include satellite payloads, launches, investment, marketing, and international collaboration. Find out more about the Sutherland project here!
The tech team is working on upgrading the space node software. The current software version takes a long time to create a wallet and validate the transaction and thus, they are working on improving the relevant algorithms, aiming to improve the efficiency of the multi-signature transaction process.
In addition, the tech team is also applying a security layer to handle OTP validation failure in the SPC server.
