Astral9 is an innovative approach towards delivering applications over satellite. Customers around the world can operate their own Astral9 SpacePortals, an all-in-one satellite based system that allows users to connect via Metro Wi-Fi services. Astral9 SpacePortals have a unique captive portal, featuring sponsored access to blockchain applications and blockchain companies wishing to advertise their services and products. Our entire system is completely based on Stellar, allowing us to receive nearly any trusted Stellar Asset being traded with an open order book.
Astral9 is also in joint development with ATLAS Space to launch Crypto-1, the first ever Lunar blockchain application and data store depot on the moon. Crypto-1 will feature a webcam, full time Free Space Optical Gigabit radio link, and ROV Rovers to explore the surface of the moon in near real time. Our cryptocurrency, XA9, or Astrals, is the only currency accepted (via Stellar's Pathfinder and Converting tools) on our network.
