Marscoin - a cryptocurrency to bootstrap space colonization

288
-1

Published on

Marscoin proposes a public funding model for space colonization based on a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency network, built on the Bitcoin code. It tackles the largely unsolved funding hurdles for mankind's space exploration efforts by establishing a global, supra-national, voluntary currency that attempts to bootstrap future Mars colonies, incentivizing adoption of the digital currency as a stake in the colonies' future economy. Individuals that invest into this "joint-stock" colony funding model elevate the exchange rate of the currency, in effect providing the early stakeholders with the funding necessary for the construction of the future base.
