“One small step for man, One giant leap for Mankind.”
Neil Armstrong’s fabled words defined a generation, Blockchain startup Diana are now looking to honor that legacy with a trip to the moon of their own. On the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon landing, Diana are looking to launch a “lunar registry” as they look to place the surface of the moon onto a blockchain.
In essence, Diana is offering users the opportunity to purchase a piece of the moon to call your own through a proof of stake blockchain that divides the moon up in to 3,874,204,892 cells. As you can only purchase visible sides of the moon, only 2 billion of those 3.8 are available for purchase.
Diana has a dual token system, DIA & MOND. The DIA token is used for creating registration claims and representing lunar land ownership whereas the MOND token is used for internal network and transactions. The Mond is tethered to the US Dollar and is locked at 1:1 keeping it stable and builds user trust.
According to a statement Diana released on the Medium platform, they commented “The Diana blockchain records each registration and can never be repealed, edited, or otherwise modified in any way. Because Diana is issued on the Ethereum network, and Ethereum is, along with Bitcoin, the most widely decentralized network in existence, it is immutably secure and will stand the test of time. Therefore, you can rest assured that you can pass your lunar claims onto your children and grandchildren.”
According to the release, Diana believes by tokenizing the moon they give the ownership back to the people and prevent any government taking full ownership of the moon.
