How are Space Decentral and Space Cooperative related?

Space Cooperative is the founding entity behind Space Decentral, and one that will be capable of interfacing with the real world when necessary such as for procuring launch licenses or remitting checks to contractors that do not accept cryptocurrency. However it should be noted that Space Cooperative does not or will not wholly own Space Decentral. Members of Space Cooperative will act as the initial stewards of Space Decentral with the aim for it to flourish and grow to be a network where multiple organizations and individuals can share value, with no single entity having central authority.

 

Why was Space Decentral created?

Space Decentral was created to break the monopoly that states and corporations have hitherto had on the exploration, use and settlement of space. It seeks to engage all members of the human race who share a vision of a continual flourishing of both human and non-human life both on the Earth itself and spreading, like a green fire of creation, into the cosmos. It is designed to tap the potential of human creativity and collaboration across the globe, and pool our talents and resources in a way that ensures long term commitment and shared responsibility for that vision.
