Goonhilly and Spacebit Partner | Space Exploration with Blockchain

Goonhilly Earth Station, the UK satellite communications innovator and space gateway, has today announced that it is collaborating with space blockchain technology pioneers, Spacebit, to develop the use of blockchain technology for space-based data applications and mission deployment. Blockchain technology has the potential to introduce new techniques to accelerate space exploration by creating an ecosystem that fosters access to space data. The partnership is seeking to lower the barrier to entry to access to space communication and application networks.

The Goonhilly-Spacebit collaboration, with initial agreement signed at the Farnborough International Air Show in the UK (FIA18), will result in applications utilising tokenised ground station and spacecraft data, blockchain-based data management, new communications protocols for security and the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as advanced data provenance systems using distributed ledger technology (DLT).

Blockchain technology will allow Goonhilly to create new business models using a decentralized data management system for communicating between spacecraft and ground stations. The creation, management and easy access to data, whilst maintaining security and a historical record of each data transfer, will accelerate the development of commercial space activities.

Blockchain-based systems allow data to be distributed, or decentralized, while maintaining highly accurate records of movement, thereby removing the possibility of data tampering. Whether it is used to automate complex sequencing of data in support of spacecraft launches, solving GPS issues or creating systems for inter-space and Earth-to-space communication, blockchain creates the founding principles upon which solutions can be built and accessed at a lower cost by private and public organizations or individuals.

Goonhilly and Spacebit Partner

Ian Jones, CEO of Goonhilly Earth Station said, “Exploring the new commercial opportunities in space requires new ways of thinking. Many of the underlying techniques used in blockchain technology have strong parallels in existing secure communication technology. We look forward to working with Spacebit to discover innovative use cases and business models for blockchain-enabled space communications and showing how these might be applied.”

Founder of Spacebit, Pavlo Tanasyuk, said: “Goonhilly shares our passion for exploration, and a disruptive, entrepreneurial approach to business. Today’s partnership is targeted at driving forward new economic models around space communication. We firmly believe space exploration should be available to everyone; blockchain lies at the heart of that ambition and will galvanize the new space economy by laying the building blocks for the automation of space communications and democratizing access to space data and satellite communications.”

INVESTORS ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO CONFIRM THE ACCURACY OF ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM THIS SITE PRIOR TO MAKING ANY INVESTMENT DECISION.
OTC Risk Warnings
Because many securities traded Over-The-Counter (OTC) are relatively illiquid, or “thinly traded,” which tends to increase volatility in market prices, an investment in an OTC security involves a high degree of risk. These speculative and illiquid securities are often difficult for investors to buy or sell without significantly affecting the quoted price. It should be noted that the liquidation of a position in an OTC security may not even be possible within a reasonable period of time.
Dependable information regarding issuers of OTC securities, their prospects, or the risks associated with the business of any particular issuer or an investment in the issuer’s securities may not be available. For this reason, it may be difficult to properly value an investment in an OTC security or accurately determine the risks involved with investing in such a security. For more information about investing in microcap securities, please read the content on the SEC’s website, including the SEC’s investor publication titled “Microcap Stock: A Guide for Investors” available at https://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/microcapstock.htm.
Issuers of OTC securities quoted on the OTC Link system are not required to provide any kind of information to investors. While many issuers register OTC securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and regularly provide reports to investors in connection with such registration, they are not required to continue such registration or regularly provide such reports because their securities are quoted on OTC Link. Securities may continue to be quoted on the OTC Link system if issuers are delinquent in their reporting obligation to the SEC or other federal or state regulatory agencies. Quotation of a security on the OTC Link system does not in itself create any ongoing filing or reporting obligations with the SEC for any issuer. In fact, issuers may not even be aware that their securities are quoted on the OTC Link system.

Netcoins NIO Listing | Autonio’s Up and Coming NIO Token is Here!

Netcoins, a publicly traded company out of Vancouver, Canada recently announced it will list Autonio’s NIO token. As of August 30, 2018, NIO will be available at Netcoins retail locations throughout Australia, Canada, and Europe in addition to their OTC exchange. The listing announcement was recently picked up on both the NASDAQ and Bloomberg newswires.

https://www.nasdaq.com/press-release/netcoins-lists-nio-token-by-autonio-20180809-00941

https://www.bloomberg.com/press-releases/2018-08-09/netcoins-lists-nio-token-by-autonio

The listing will make Autonio available to thousands of people worldwide, and substantially lower the barrier of entry by adding three ways to purchase NIO with fiat. Once the listing is active, NIO can be purchased from any of Netcoins virtual ATMs, by using store-bought vouchers which can be redeemed later online, or by using their dedicated OTC desk for orders of $1000 or more.

Autonio Co-founder, Ali Raheman, discussed the partnership with Netcoins, “The entire Autonio team is excited about the partnership with Netcoins as this alliance makes our native token NIO easily accessible to thousands of users. Netcoins shares a similar vision to us and is passionate about building powerful solutions to serve the community.”

“The NIO platform has great potential to take advantage of AI for crypto traders,” said Netcoins CEO Mark Binns. “The exposure that Netcoins brings to NIO will help them reach adoption goals while giving our community another coin to invest in and utilize, creating a win-win.”

Over the last several months Autonio has been working to make the Autonio platform and the NIO token more accessible to people around the world. The recently announced Netcoins listing and recent coverage in Bloomberg and NASDAQ newswires show that these efforts are beginning to show results.

Trillion-Dollar Shipping Industry Betting Big On BlockchainTrillion-Dollar Shipping Industry Betting Big On Blockchain

Depositphotos/Tzido

FN Media Group Presents Cryptocurrencynews.com Market Commentary

In the United States shipping and logistics accounts for nearly $1.5 trillion each year. With networks of producers, shippers, and consumers coordinating to access products, inefficiencies are an inevitable industry reality. In an effort to address these problems, companies around the world are working to revolutionize shipping and logistics through the instant and immutable properties of blockchain technology. Technology giants are predicting that traditional enterprise clients will seek to integrate blockchain technology into their businesses in the future. As legacy sales decrease, goliaths like IBM see blockchain as the supply-management tool of choice. The global logistics industry was valued at USD $8.1 trillion in 2015, and as the global economy grows it is estimated that this number will reach USD $15.5 trillion by 2024. Leading logistics and blockchain technology companies such as DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (OTC: DMGGF) (TSX-V: DMGI), Descartes Systems Group Inc (NASDAQ: DSGX) (TSE: DSG), Blockstrain Technologies Corp. (OTC: BKKSF) (TSX-V: DNAX), Drone Delivery Canada Corp. (OTC: TAKOF) (TSX-V: FLT) and AXS Blockchain Solutions Inc. (CSE:BAXS) (FRA: C0B) have begun addressing issues within the shipping industry.

Is the industry ready for such rapid development? No.

The global logistics industry currently relies on outdated systems of organization to conduct business. These systems are rife with delays due to human error, poor communication, and other breakdowns. Blockchain technology offers a unique opportunity for these systems to be replaced, ushering in a new era of automation and efficiency.

In late 2017 UPS realized blockchain’s enormous potential to transform industries, joining the Blockchain in Trucking Alliance (BiTA). Created for people working in the freight industry to improve standards and education around blockchain, BiTA is known for bringing major freight technology companies together to develop blockchain technology. Another recent notable member is German software giant SAP SE, who became BiTA members in 2017.

Solving Logistical Issues With Blockchain Technology

AXS Blockchain Solutions Inc. is following the footsteps of UPS by betting big on blockchain logistics with its recent acquisition of Chainlinks Lab for CAD $4,000,000. Chainlinks is in the final development phase of a blockchain-based logistics platform called 1Shift Logistics. The platform aims to solve the fragmented marketplace of suppliers using outdated legacy systems that require a manual workforce to complete routine and simple tasks. 1Shift aims to solve the existing logistical issues in the trucking industry by improving transparency and reducing the likelihood of human error.

“The acquisition of Chainlinks allows AXS Blockchain to dive deep in the trillion dollar logistics industry. With the advent of blockchain, AI cognitive search and smart contracts there is a great opportunity to simplify, streamline and create transparency in the supply chain. Utilizing a mix of these technologies in a revolutionary eco-system can solve real-time tracking and tracing issues, live escalation updates to mitigate downtime and simpler payment settlements to name a few,”

commented AXS Blockchain CEO, Mo Ahmad.

For freight brokers, 1Shift can provide instant solutions for major issues such as cargo protection and delivery efficiency within both the logistics and transportation industries. By providing all parties involved with a single customized dashboard for tracking freight payment, rates, financial metrics, and budgeting, 1Shift will increase shipping reliability and visibility in order to maintain intermediary relationships.

Descartes Systems Group Inc (TSX: DSG) (NASDAQ: DSGX) is another company that provides a logistics software-as-a-service solution aimed at improving the efficiency, operational performance, and security of logistics-intensive businesses. With a current stock price of $44.34 CAD and a market cap of $3.4 billion, it is plausible that investors believe in the power of blockchain technology.

Identifying Industry Issues

Global cargo theft is estimated to cost $60 billion USD per year. The United States is said to lose nearly $35 billion alone. These losses hurt businesses and cost consumers, offering a unique opportunity for blockchain-based solutions to recover a massive amount of profit. The North American trucking industry is also a very fragmented marketplace. There are over 500,000 trucking companies in operation across the continent, each of which must conform to a complex initial vetting process. These companies lack the appropriate tracking tools to monitor their shipments, exacerbating an inefficient system.

Lost, late, and damaged goods are a common problem in the shipping industry. These issues are often discovered after it is too late, creating a loss for both shippers are manufacturers. Many of these issues could be solved by the automation and security provided by blockchain-based logistics systems. By reducing the need for human input, blockchain technology can provide a seamless solution to many of these easily-automated issues.

Linda Weakland, UPS’s Director of Enterprise Architecture and Innovation, is long on blockchain. She says,

“It has multiple applications in the logistics industry, especially related to supply chains, insurance, payments, audits and customs brokerage. The technology has the potential to increase transparency and efficiency among shippers, carriers, brokers, consumers, vendors and other supply chain stakeholders.”

Blockchain: The Backbone of Modern Logistics

Within the freight transport industry, there are many intermediaries that are involved in the transportation of goods from point A to point B. Many individuals involved in the delivery chain process means that there are significant amounts of information that will remain hidden or get lost in translation.

Across global networks, blockchain fundamentals can provide efficiency, transparency and security. Incorporating these fundamentals will build a transparent way of monitoring global trade and lower costs between intermediaries within the supply chain.

The billion-dollar cannabis industry is ripe for this technology. Blockstrain Technologies Corp. (TSX-V: DNAX) (OTCPK: BKKSF). Blockstrain is currently attempting to secure the intellectual property associated with cannabis genomes by hosting it on a blockchain. By validating the genome and source of cannabis plants, stakeholders throughout the industry should be able to track their product from seed to sale.

To address the issue of amounts of intermediaries in a chain, Drone Delivery Canada Corp. (OTCQB: TAKOF) (TSX-V: FLT) is working to pioneer a commercially viable drone delivery system across Canada. Once in place, this system will effectively remove human error from large portions of the shipping process and lower costs between intermediaries.

To reduce fraud and friction throughout current supply chain systems DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (OTCQB: DMGGF) (TSX-V: DMGI) plans to work with an existing licensed producer to develop a platform ensuring complete provenance of controlled products through the entire supply chain system.

If blockchain’s integration into the logistics industry turns out to be a success, it is fantastic news for consumers, shippers and investors alike. It seems as though just about everyone involved is discovering the advantages of operating on a blockchain system. Especially for the shipping sector, it might represent a solution to the industry’s need to keep pace in the face of steady rapid growth.
