When moon? πŸš€

A crypto wallet built by developers at SpaceChain has been launched into the stratosphere on-board a Falcon 9 rocket on 7 Dec, becoming the first active Bitcoin (BTC) node on the International Space Station (ISS). 

For SpaceChain, the launch is a step forward in its mission of forging a strong, decentralized blockchain infrastructure high above the Earth, beyond any country's jurisdiction and above the reach of physical hardware hacks. 🌎

The company regards its nodes as a "radical new way" to make cryptocurrency transactions more secure, and the wallet "will play a small but important part in that long-term goal." Upon installation by the astronauts aboard the ISS, the node will operate for around 1 year getting multi-signature transactions through the ISS data feed.

Progress πŸ‘

Ethereum has successfully implemented the "Istanbul" hard fork at block #9,069,000 in its 3rd systemwide upgrade in 2019. "Istanbul" is the Ethereum network's 8th hard fork overall with the first code changes approved in June 2019. πŸ‘

The main issues addressed by Istanbul's 6 Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs) are denial-of-service (DDoS) attack resilience (EIP 1344), interoperability with equihash-based proof-of-work (PoW) cryptocurrencies like Zcash (EIP 152) and gas costs (EIPs 1108, 2028, 2200).  

The EIPs enabled lower gas costs so as to boost the blockchain's bandwidth and facilitate zero-knowledge privacy technologies like zk-SNARKs.

To better serve you πŸ‘

Microsoft's blockchain-enabled cloud service Microsoft Azure announced new blockchain data and tokenization management services in a published post on the official Microsoft Azure blog on 6 Dec. πŸ“

The Azure Blockchain Tokens service seeks to simplify the "definition, creation and management of compliant tokens built to industry standards" and offers pre-built templates for common uses and hosts a gallery of templates created by partners that are anticipated to be added in the future. 

Customers can now get an "end-to-end experience of easily creating and managing tokens for physical or digital assets via Azure Blockchain Tokens (preview)."

The blockchain data manager is a new Azure Blockchain Service feature meant to allow its users to capture, transform and decrypt blockchain ledger data (if encrypted), simplifying the "cumbersome task of integrating existing applications with data that sits on a blockchain ledger."
