American billionaire Elon Musk’s company, SpaceX, is embarking on a revolutionary new project. In fact, the latter intends to broadcast advertisements in space, in collaboration with the Canadian company Geometric Energy Corporation (GEC). In an interview with the US media Business Insider, the head of the latter, Samuel Reid said that his company will put a satellite dedicated to advertising into orbit.
Said satellite will be equipped with a boom
This one, called the CubeSat, will be powered by SpaceX’s Falcon9 rocket. “I am trying to achieve something that can democratize access to space and allow decentralized participation. I hope people don’t spend their money on inappropriate, insulting or offensive things, ”said Samuel Reid. Note that one side of the CubeSat will have a pixelated screen that will project advertisements, artwork, or company logos. In addition, said satellite will be equipped with a pole that will allow the taking of selfies, which will allow filming its screen with the aim of broadcasting the ads live, in particular on the YouTube platform.
To ensure the operation of the project, the people who request this service will be able to pay cryptocurrencies, to have the right to their advertising space. To do this, virtual currencies such as ethereum can be used. In the future, the companies involved in this project also want to accept dogecoins.
