An ambitious plan to launch bitcoin-enabled microsatellites has taken a step forward with a new business deal.
Dunvegan Space Systems, a startup led by bitcoin core developer Jeff Garzik has signed a manufacturing contract with Deep Space Industries (DSI) that will find it constructing 24 nanosatellites for its proposed BitSat program.
The BitSat cluster will act as space-bound bitcoin nodes and is the first of a planned series of nanosatellites. Additional BitSats will be available for purchase at $1m apiece, according to the company.
