Space and Blockchain, A “Thursdays on the Block” Online Panel
The Blockchain Center hosts a weekly webcast event, “Thursdays on the Block“. The New Space Economy was the centralizing topic de jour for a panel of experts that included Harumi Urata-Thompson, who appeared as CEO and Co-Founder of celestialdata.
This week’s panel discussion, “Space and Blockchain” was held with deeply experienced knowledge experts and entrepreneurs who operate at the intersection of Space (as in Outer Space) and emerging enabling technologies like blockchain.
Appearing on the panel alongside Harumi were Grant Blaisdell and Samuel Reid. Grant Blaisdell is an early innovator in applying blockchain technology to various industries, having co-founded the leading Blockchain Analytics and AML company Confirm and the marketplace for digital Space assets, Copernic Space.
Samuel Reid is a mathematician, business executive, inventor, and STEM polymath, having been the Chief Blockchain Engineer of the world’s first government regulated cryptocurrency exchange, the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange. He was CEO of Clean Crude Corporation and GeometricLabs Corporation and is also part of the Space Exploration Branch of the Canadian Space Agency as a member of the Signature Technology Consultation Committee.
Engaging in a lively conversation, the panel addressed issues like:
How do you get involved in the New Space Economy?
What can we learn about New Space Economy startup trajectories?
What about the New Space Economy startup ecosystem is different?
When and how do you fundraise in the New Space Economy ecosystem?
The online event was hosted by the Blockchain Center as part of its weekly “Thursdays on the Block” webcast panel discussion.
