Nowadays, everyone wats pieces of crypto-collectibles, and a US Space Force NFT will be issued on Solana Blockchain, named Neil Armstrong Sattelite NFT.
The United States Space Force (USSF) has announced the release of its Non-Fungible Token (NFT) series called “Armstrong Satellite NFT Launch with Space Force”. The NFT series is named after Neil Armstrong, the first American and human to land on the moon, which is in production in partnership with Ethernity Chain and Star Atlas.
This is the first-ever US Space Force (USSF)-licensed non-fungible token (NFT) was launched in Star Atlas, a blockchain-based metaverse offering space exploration with next-generation multiplayer gaming technology.
According to the official announcement, the NFT series will feature a limited edition digital NFT satellite GPS III SV05 “ARMSTRONG” and 3D NFTs representing more than 30 satellites currently in orbit forming a GPS constellation around the Earth, among others. The Armstrong Satellite, in honor of Neil Armstrong’s historic achievement, has its inherent meaning in providing “accurate global positioning and navigation systems for military and civilian users.”
The collection will, uniquely, be launched on two separate NFT platforms, beginning with Star Atlas on June 14 – three days prior to the scheduled Armstrong satellite launch.
The other NFT partner platform for the collection is Ethernity, a unique digital asset platform that produces limited edition digital collectible NFTs and trading cards by elite artists featuring notable and historical figures, athletes, musicians, and more, built on the Ethereum Network.
A notable American agency’s foray into the NFT metaverse signals that the industry’s potential is rapidly approaching maturity with broader public acceptance. The Ethernity Chain team particularly views the partnership with the USSF as a victory for blockchain immutability.
“This is a historic opportunity for the NFT and blockchain space to jumpstart the medium and celebrate a moment technologically and futuristically,”Said Ethernity Chain CEO Nick Rose as part of the announcement.
[…] “Now we can put this release and Neil Armstrong’s historic achievements in the immutable ledger and memorize and symbolize it in an NFT that the public can participate in.”
US agencies are known to be big supporters and investors in blockchain technologies. The move to NFTs is a testament to the confidence in the technology’s potential to recreate user experiences and retain bits and pieces of history. While NASA is funding a blockchain-based space communications project, the agency’s plunge into blockchain has been attached to the likely launch of a cryptocurrency as the agency has already been in search of a data scientist.
