What is Space DAO?

Space DAO is a technical implementation for the governance of space applications with high uncertainty and collaboration challenges.

It designed to:

  • Establish consensus on measurements and data from multiple sources
  • Enhance quality assurance through network consensus
  • Create a thriving marketplace for data insights and analytics

Our unique approach empowers a diverse range of stakeholders to contribute and benefit from our platform. These stakeholders include:

  • Data providers: Contributors who share measurements and analyses, receiving rewards for their valuable input
  • Data users: Professionals who leverage the knowledge within Space DAO for their projects, potentially becoming data providers themselves by offering their analyses
  • Regulators and Space Policy makers: the analysts and thinkers who build and test new rules for space traffic, disaster response or any other space application organisation
  • Maintainers: Developers who make sure rules are well implemented to support healthy automated network interactions

Challenges We Address

Space DAO aims to provide a comprehensive solution for these challenges, fostering collaboration, trust, and efficiency in the space industry.

Space Situational Awareness faces several pressing issues today:

  • Increasing numbers of defunct or rogue satellites posing risks to other satellites
  • Overwhelming variations in data certainty across a growing number of data providers
  • Multiple, often conflicting measurements with no mathematical single source of truth per collision warning
  • Lack of standardized agreements for effective rule-making
  • Distrust and absence of timely, accurate data
