August 26, 2020 NASA is funding the development of a blockchain-based communication system.

Orbit Logic and the Fraunhofer USA Center for Experimental Software Engineering received $124K from NASA this week to fund a joint effort, the “Space Communication Reconstruction and Mapping with Blockchain Ledgering.” The blockchain-based technology would be used as a communication mechanism for quadcopters, and to propagate data between networking satellites.
