Space has been defined as owned by all of humanity, and as such, no private individuals, nation states, corporations or sovereignty can lay claim to Space ownership. There is a possibility of mining minerals and volatiles from asteroids, and using them in space while in place, or taking them back to Earth for usage. These minerals include gold, iridium, silver, osmium, palladium, platinum, iron, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, aluminum, etc. Therefore, it is suggested that asteroid mining will be the way to go in the future as there are over 600,000 asteroids with a total estimated value of $700 quintillion, whose mining rights are available for claim by private individuals, nation states and corporations, using smart contracts, and Asteroid Limited, through its services, will enable securing a claim on some asteroids by claimants. Asteroid mining involves exploiting raw materials from asteroids and other small planets, and Asteroid Limited seeks for Space democratization through Blockclaim — a new Blockchain mechanism. The Blockclaim enables a nation state, company or private individual to, in both terrestrial and non-terrestrial space environment, lay claim to as well as share in huge wealth within our near celestial orbit, as there is currently no structure in place for any potential asteroid miner (nation state, company or private individual) to lay claim on their right to an asteroid. Blockclaim will use smart contracts to automatically define a mining claim, country specific royalty, the ability to establish, sell, bequeath or trade a claim, etc. Once the Blockclaim ledger is launched, the value of each asteroid is allocated into a number of Blockclaims, with each representing a value of US $1,000,000 at a fixed price of US $10 for each claim. Blockclaim mechanisms, within the Ethereum protocol, will also enable Asteroid Limited to make provision for a secure and transparent public ledger, thereby enabling potential asteroid miners to lay claim and share in the benefits from asteroids and other minor planets, which include Near-Earth objects. Blockclaims will be secured with the ASTRCOIN token, and the value of this token will grow as exploration in Space grows. In essence, the mining of asteroids will provide huge wealth and growth to mankind in the future.
WHOCLAIM (BLOCKCLAIM SEARCH)
WhoClaim helps provide and maintain timely, public and unrestricted access to all Blockclaim information from Blockchain. It validates that Blockclaim is secured and registered.
Blockclaim registration is done by using ASTRCOINS only, and the value of a Blockclaim is US $10. A blockclaim claimant will, based on the exchange rate at the time of securing Blockclaim, purchase the US $10 equivalent, in ASTRCOIN.
ASTEROID SOCIETY AND ITS BENEFITS
Asteroid society, a Public Good Membership Organization, has over 28,000 members that are verified and still growing. It is established in Hong Kong. This society is based on membership and will provide a platform that will help create a huge voice worldwide, to determine mankind’s role in the exploration of Space. The following are benefits of the asteroid society;
· Creates Membership
· Creates Instant Crypto Liquidity
· Provides significant growth in membership, thereby creating a strong Constituency and Worldwide voice
· Allows Protocol Development through a Crypto Market Valuation increase
