As per the latest info, SpaceChain announced that SpaceX will launch an Ethereum (ETH) node to the International Space Station (ISS) on July 3, marking the first time an Ethereum node will be sent into space.
This will be the first demonstration of the combination of Ethereum and International Space Station hardware, but it will not be the first time in space.
The Ethereum node will be SpaceChain’s fourth blockchain payload into space and will be the responsibility of SpaceChain’s customer Nexus.
In addition, SpaceX will use its Falcon 9 rocket to go to the International Space Station again on June 24 and create three nodes for Biteeu, Divine, and Nexus.
After the news was released, the value of Ethereum ushered in a small rise, but it has now fallen. As of press time, Ethereum is quoted at US$2725.42, a 24-hour increase of 1.32%.
