How about beaming the live blockchain around the World using satellite services that would provide free access to the DASH network? Let me give you an example to illustrate how it could work: Alice is a prominent mountain guide. She spends most of her time above the timberline with no connection to the rest of the world. She has no interest and very little time to spend in cities. Dealing with the hassle of online banking is the last of her concerns. Bob is a business owner in a small village in the valley. The village has roads but very expensive and intermittent access to internet with aggressive data caps. His shop sells the food and equipment necessary for organising mountaineering expeditions. Bob also sells Wi-Fi access to traveler and he is a good friend of Alice. He proposes her services online. Carol lives in a world-class city. Her 23rd floor apartment is connected to internet by gigabit fibre. She is organising her upcoming challenge to the mountains. She wants to climb with Alice. Bob sends Alice’s DASH address to Carol. Carol transfer the agreed amount within the next block. The block is broadcasted by satellite to Bob’s full node. Bob can tell Alice that the transaction has been confirmed and she can book Carol into her schedule. Alice has her funds secured within the DASH blockchain. She can use them as she wishes, for instance spending them at Bob’s shop next time she goes back to the village. The project would be very similar to Outernet (local news, weather, crop prices) or Blockstream (Bitcoin) as it does not require to launch new dedicated satellites into space, but rather rents frequency from existing providers. It would target applications for the billions of people who still have zero or very limited access to internet due to many factors. These can be due to financial or political reasons or even due to intermittent natural or atmospheric conditions. Living in such a forsaken place half of the year myself, I do realise the importance of filling this gap and of enabling the infinite possibilities that the wild wide world has to offer. Pros: DASH leading R&D in blockchain broadcasting Serving potential DASH users all over the world in places beyond the reach of the usual internet Increasing decentralisation and optimising distribution Enable off-grid DASH applications (outdoor events, remote festivals, mining) Easier to develop air-gap applications and networks Increasing network resiliency in case of localised catastrophic events (disaster, war) Countering political intervention and censorship Countless future application that yet to be discovered Cons: Cost of satellite capacity leasing per month Some applications can already be addressed with SPV clients (Electrum-DASH) I would be most interested to hear the thoughts, considerations, or technical challenges the DASH community may have on this proposal. My company nThinking and I, do have extensive experience dealing with large engineering corporations. We currently work in railway, logistics and telecom industries and we’d be very interested in working on such project. I already have some figures about market price for leasing a test link and I think that is within DASH monthly budget bracket. I also have more technical information references and project scheduling to share as I have already put quite a lot of thought into this. If you’re interested, this will be posted here very soon.
