Getting Started with Moonshot

Getting started can be overwhelming. You might be excited to help out but don't quite know how. Don't worry, we've tried to simplify the most important roadblocks that we must overcome to make this possible. The call-to-action for newcomers is to: 1) Submit a Proposal to solve…

Data donation mockup - sending more than money to the moon

Intro – In my opinion, encrypting data rather than just cryptocurrencies represents the most promising aspect of this project by far. As discussed in my Private key protocol and Most secure way posts, we probably don't want to send a Bitcoin private key. Instead, we should send…

Million dollar homepage idea

Check out milliondollarhomepage.com, reddit.com/r/place and cryptopaint.com. Combining these idea's we can create something like this: People can buy moonrocks (ROCK) that will give them access to paint on a canvas that will surround the QR code of the public key of the wallet…

Smart Contracts + IoT device + Extensible Markov Models (for anomaly detection)

Brainstorm for trustless private key generation Smart contract that is connected to an IoT device and generates a private key connected to a public key at a predefined point in time. This private key is transmitted to the IoT device stored in the rocket's payload directly…

The most secure way I can think of

1. Contract a payload for delivery to the lunar surface (probably Astrobotic or Moon Express aboard a Rocket Lab Electron or SpaceX Falcon rocket) 2. Get a third-party crypto security firm to audit the payload before launch, verifying for the public that the code and…

Easier places to put Bitcoin as an MVP

Sending something to the moon is no small feat and there are plenty of ways we could test the concept by putting Bitcoin in other interesting places as an MVP (minimum viable product) Mariana Trench – we could put a private key to the bottom of the ocean, possibly the Mariana…

Private key protocol

Quantum key generation - while this is really cool, I know of no way that quantum mechanics could possibly help ensure the general public that the key really is on the surface of the moon and that no copies exist on earth. In most quantum scenarios, Alice and Bob are both…

Lots of ways to get Bitcoin to the moon

Dedicated launch, controlled landing - probably in the 10's of millions of dollars (not even counting R&D costs for our spacecraft) but you get to land exactly where you want (big fan of Shackleton crater). Astrobotic specifically advertises this as one of their…

Lots of possible funding sources

Kickstarter – I think a Kickstarter would be fairly straightforward. I was planning to do this with Lith Labs (similar idea I worked on last summer). At the time, I was also planning to use the solar eclipse to drive attention toward the Kickstarter but that ship has sailed…
