太空链 Receives Support from 欧洲an 空间 Agency for 区块链 卫星 Technology

欧空局 Business Applications and 空间 Solutions, under its Kick-Start Activity program, has awarded funding to 太空链 UK to further develop and identify commercial use-cases for its satellite blockchain technology.

欧空局’s Kick-start Activity Program is designed to make it easier for entrepreneurs and start-ups to explore thematic areas with promising business potential and to create new commercial services and applications relying on space assets and data. Successful Kick-start projects can be further developed with additional funding from 欧空局’的业务应用程序和空间解决方案。

太空链’s satellite blockchain technology is designed to bring more security to the transmission of digital currencies and smart contracts by using a distributed satellite network and multi-signature transactions. Thus far, 太空链 has developed an open-source operating system, and launched and flight-tested two blockchain nodes into space in the past 12 months.

“荣幸地获得欧洲航天局的支持。金融技术行业目前在数字货币的存储和传输方面的安全性较低,这使其无法获得与传统银行业相同的专业水平和信任度。我们很高兴通过将区块链技术带给欧盟和英国的新合作伙伴来解决这一问题,”SpaceChain联合创始人兼首席执行官Zee Zheng说。

如果用户使用当前的区块链交易会带来重大的安全风险’的私有签名密钥已被破坏。为了解决这个问题,SpaceChain开发了一种比传统方法更快,更安全的多签名卫星钱包。代替使用一个私钥,SpaceChain钱包可以使用三个签名方案中的两个,其中至少需要两个签名才能完成交易,而卫星则是这些签名之一。即使由于两个基于地面的签名仍然可以完成交易而导致连接失败的情况下,钱包中的资金仍然安全。

“Multisignature transactions have been proven to be highly robust security measures for financial systems and we are very excited to be partnering with 欧空局 and expanding these security measures to the new space economy,” said 杰夫·加兹克, 太空链 co-founder and chief technology officer.

太空链 plans to collaborate with 英国Deimos 空间 whose expertise in flight systems, ground segment systems, space situational awareness, and satellite navigation make them an ideal partner.

“We look forward to a long-term partnership with Deimos, beginning with this 欧空局 project. Deimos has identified the innovations being developed by 太空链 as being enablers of a more robust EO data commercialisation platform. The fields of earth observation and remote sensing are ripe for distributed ledger technology innovation,” said 尼克·特鲁根(Nick Trudgen), 太空链 chief commercial officer and UK office director.
