WHAT IS SPACECHAIN?
SpaceChain is like Blockchain for space.
To really simplify it, Blockchain is like an OS, running on many computers worldwide, in a decentralized network.
Bitcoin, was the first “app” to “run” on the Blockchain – which was followed by over a thousands other virtual currencies, or services like Smart contracts, that uses Blockchain in order to work.
HOW IT WORKS
SpaceChain is built on the top of the Blockchain source-code, and modified for applications in the space industry. Bitnation Space Agency, is just like Bitcoin once was for Blockchain, the first “app” to use SpaceChain in order to create a decentralized and transparent space agency with an open-source ideology, with the goal to make space travel as DIY-friendly as possible, available without restrictions to any individual, at any time.
WHO CAN USE IT OR PARTICIPATE?
Anyone is welcome to register an account and join our projects, or propose projects to be carried out – our policy is that anyone, with an interest in space, should be able to join a space agency, without any kind of discrimination.
The agency is non-profit, with its HQ based in Stockholm, Sweden, under Bitnation jurisdiction and a part of Bitnation Pangea.
Bitnation is also the authoritative body of SpaceChain, regulating missions, funding and support.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: We do NOT and CAN NOT impose or ratify any sanctions on the SpaceChain network, by any nation or entity, like the U.N, E.U or the U.S, regarding any kind of civilian or military strategical/non-strategical items restricted by the affected sanction or sanctions, to any countries at all.
Please understand that SpaceChain is a fully automated system, and it is physically impossible to stop a certain entity or group to use it.
The Swedish company SpaceChain has nothing to do with the network itself, nor have any influence over how it is used.
We cannot or have administrative access to “transactions” over the SpaceChain network

WHAT WE DO
creative solutions for all your needs!
Since prehistoric times, when the first humans gazed at the stars, the dreams of the wonders of heaven have been a central ingredient of mankind’s mythology, religion and in the modern age, the driving force to reach beyond the boundaries of the human voyage.
Early Argonauts used the stars to navigate the seas and oceans. Explorers used it to plot their course through unknown territory. Ancient civilizations gave names to the constellations after their gods and beliefs, laying the ground of today’s religions.
As our civilization matured, with the industrial and scientific revolution, the heavens constantly changed, challenged and shaped the perception of our place in the universe.
It is only merely a few hundred years ago when we thought that our planet was the center of the universe. Modern science proved our sun to be one of trillions among the infinite stars in the universe and with the new discoveries in the field of quantum mechanics and the theories of multiverse, giving us a hint that our universe might just as well be one of many others.
Since the beginning of the space age, which began with Sputnik in 1957, space-science has given us countless new technologies, from the simple Teflon in our frying pans to innumerable scientific discoveries ranging from new drugs for curing deadly diseases, to inventions that laid the ground of the information technology, Internet, and global communication and positioning, GPS using satellites orbiting the planet, and yet we are still in the beginning of what lays ahead of us.
With this in mind, it is quite obvious that space-science is essential for us as a species to evolve further, to invent new technologies and make new discoveries.
Our planet can no longer sustain the need of resources for the growing population and it will be necessary for humans to colonize other celestial bodies and planets. The resources of our planet are shrinking at a rapidly increasing speed, and it is needless to say that resources have been one of the two main reasons of countless wars through our history, the other meaningless reason being ideologies, like politics and religion. The day that we have to leave the cradle crawls closer and closer for every minute. It is therefore a necessity of survival of our species to develop space-travel at a large scale available to everyone at any time. Money, social status, geographic habitat, or any other reason, should not dictate whatever or not an individual have access to space travel.
That is where the Bitnation Space Agency comes in play with the SpaceChain space program. The very special essence of this idea is to open-source and decentralize space-travel; a space agency that is not bound to any nation or state, free for everyone to participate regardless of nationality, geographic habitation or current political situation.
We at Bitnation Space Agency welcomes you to a new era of human adventure.
To seek and find new ways of making our lives better and to make new discoveries and create new technologies that will ensure the survival of our species.
WHAT WE OFFER
We provide creative and secure solutions!
Any mission that involves traveling or sending payloads to Earth orbit and outer space is a complex process involving a multitude of stakeholders from different companies and organization..
Bitnation Space Agency (BSA) not only applies redundancy in technology, but also strives to do the same in organizational matters. Hence, to minimize risks, it is important that every mission is secure, well funded and precisely directed in every part.
RISK MITIGATION STRATEGY
Space missions are challenging endeavors.
Potential risks include damages to properties, endangering the health or life of the staff or people on the ground.
Therefore, every single component must be tested several times and redundancy is an important rule of manufacturing modules to planning every part of a mission.
There is simply no margins of errors when working with high-explosive material or launching rockets that could accidently drop down in populated areas.
The redundancy rule applies to all mission-critical components. All computer-systems, electronic components and likewise have a twin that takes over if the main component fail. In some cases, like the flight-computer, there are three others in reserve if the main system fails.
The navigation-systems guidance components, also known as FOG’s (Fiber Optic Gyroscopes) are always in pairs.
It is more important that a mission goes precisely as planned rather than saving a few dollars. We always look for the highest quality in every mission.
The mission of Bitnation Space Agency (BSA) is to build an international, decentralized and open source Space Agency open for everyone, regardless of nationality, geographic habitat or national geo-political dynamics.
All technology developed by Bitnation Space Agency and the SpaceChain Space Program will be available to the public on an open source basis.
Additionally, we strive to make sure that every component and other features are eco-friendly.
Currently, the SpaceChain Space Program is working on several high-end projects, on which was completed recently by high precision FOG’s and “hacked” firmware’s for existing civilian GPS so they can be used for DIY space exploration.
The civilian global positioning system is limited by enforced regulations that downgrades the performance and accuracy of the system on software level.
By “hacking” the firmware and bypassing the limitations, the current GPS’s can now be used for research and development without the need of expensive military hardware.
The first experiments with such a device was carried out successfully in vinter of 2015, using two high-altitude weather-balloons.
Current GPS’s are limited (by firmware) to a maximum altitude of ~18 km.
The same “hack” will be used to remove the maximum velocity limit (~600 m/s).
This limit will also be tested by launching an AMRAAM 4 rocket that will reach several mach during the experiment. (The exact speed is yet unknown, as we are still developing the rocket-engines.)
SpaceChain Space Program also envisions to explore the possibility of developing robotic technology for mining on other celestial bodies in the future, mainly the Moon.
Because of the absence of liquid water and atmosphere, most minerals, metals, especially rare earth metals used in electronics can be mined directly on the lunar surface.
Further, technologies for gathering hydrogen and using lunar ice to create oxygen for rocket fuel to haul the ores back to Earth will be researched and developed.
The mining industry is one of the heaviest creators of pollutions on Earth. By moving the mining operations to other celestial bodies or the Moon, there will be a very positive impact on the Earths environment.
Bitnation Space Agency and Space Chain will also do research in developing new technologies in the field of alternative energy sources in the frame of the SpaceChain Space Program.
The program known as “Anti-matter mining”, also known as “AMM” aims to develop technology that will be able to make use of the vast amounts of anti-matter trapped in the Earth’s magnetic field.
Using technology for MRI, we aim to build anti-matter trapps, for safe transportation to Earth, and for using as fuel in fuel-depots in orbit for space vehicles launched from Earth.
However, highest-priority research of the space agency will be to develop a new and eco-friendly rocket propellant in contrast to the very highly toxic Hydrazine that is the standard fuel used by heavy space rockets, for use in the next generation manned space crafts, in the Phaeton project.
