What is Space Decentral?

Space Decentral is a decentralized, global, space agency. It’s designed to allow anyone to make their visions of our future in space a reality: through collaboration, crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, and pooling of talent. Blockchain technology serves as the backbone for this collaborative structure, ensuring transparency and openness in all links of the chain from initial vision to mission execution.

 

How are Space Decentral and Space Cooperative related?

Members of Space Cooperative founded Space Decentral and will act as the initial stewards of the network, with the aim for it to flourish and grow to be a platform 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.
