Consensys, specializing in the products of the Ethereum platform, recently published an announcement about the acquisition of a mining company, mining asteroids.
Although the terms of the deal are not yet clear, the community has yet to find out about the role of the two companies in joint cooperation. The founder of Consensys, Joe Lublin, who also helped in the creation of Ethereum, commented:
“I admire Planetary Resources for his world-class talent, her pioneering experience and inspiring people on our planet in support of her bold vision of the future… Engaging in deep space opportunities in the Consensys ecosystem reflects our belief in the potential of Ethereum to help humanity create new systems of public administration through automated trust and assured execution. This reflects our belief in the democratization and decentralization of space experience to unite our species and unlock untapped human potential. ”
He also said that the introduction of space research into his ecosystem demonstrated how sincerely they believed in Etharium to create new systems of public administration using automated trust and Guaranteed performance. He also said that they believed in the democratization and decentralization of space efforts in order to put forward yet untapped human reserves. The founder promised that they would release more information about it in the coming months.
Chris Levitsky, CEO of Planetary Resources and their chief advisor Brian Israel, will join Consensys. Lewicki, who was formerly part of NASA’s Jet propulsion Laboratory, commented:
“I am proud of the outstanding achievements of our team, grateful to our visionary supporters and very happy to join Consensys in our work to expand the sphere of humanity’s influence on the solar system.”
Planetary Resources was founded in 2010 as Arkyd astronautics and demonstrated great potential in the field of privatized space companies, while Peter Diandidis assumed the position of director. However, after they failed to provide the last round of funding, they announced that they were revising their approach and even considering the possibility of downsizing.
