Last week, there was a brief downtime but Qbao has resumed its services to help swap ourSPC-QRC to SPC-ERC tokens. Moving forward, this will be the only swap transfer they will perform. Swaps from SPC-ERC to SPC-QRC tokens will not longer be available.

We highly encourage the community to swap their SPC tokens from QRC to ERC as soon as possible in case of disruption of services in future.

We are thrilled to announce our membership with the International Astronautical Federation (IAF).The IAF was founded in 1951 when scientists from the field of space research gathered in an attempt to ensure a constant dialogue between the space-faring nations, regardless of political backdrops. 

“We are very excited to be part of such an esteemed organisation built on the idea that space exploration and industry should be for all nations and that cooperation is the key for building the new space economy,” said Zee.
