GomSpace and J.P. Morgan test blockchain transaction on GOMX-4 constellation

GomSpace and J.P. Morgan have successfully utilized the GOMX-4 satellites for an in-orbit demonstration (IOD) and tested tokenized value transfer in space. The IOD from GomSpace enabled J.P. Morgan to test the world’s first bank-led tokenized value transfer in space, executed via smart contracts on a blockchain network established between satellites orbiting the earth.

GomSpace and J.P. Morgan successfully executed a transaction between two low earth orbit (LEO) satellites, which validated the approach towards a decentralized network where communication with earth is not necessary.

This breakthrough opens the door to a potential peer-to-peer DvP (‘data versus payment’) satellite marketplace in the long term, as private companies prepare to launch their own constellations.

“We are proud to have supported J.P. Morgan as they explored this novel use case of a space-based payment infrastructure utilizing blockchain technology” – says Niels Buus, CEO of GomSpace.

The project was made possible due to GomSpace’s GOMX-4 satellites already in orbit and which are highly reconfigurable. This allows GomSpace to provide rapid in orbit demonstrations, such as this project, as a service to our customers exploring new uses of space technology and our nanosatellites.

Nanoracks launches two cubesats on NG-15 Cygnus
Wallops Island VA (SPX) Feb 22, 2021
Earlier The NG-15 Cygnus spacecraft has berthed at the International Space Station (ISS), carrying two CubeSats in the Nanoracks External Cygnus Deployer (E-NRCSD). The Cygnus arrived at the ISS after launching from Wallops Flight Facility Pad 0A on February 20, 2021 at 17:36 UTC. In celebration of Black History Month, the NG-15 Cygnus has been named in honor of Katherine Johnson, a NASA mathematician who had a vital role in early human space flight missions.
This launch is Nanoracks’ ninth missio … read more
