Yes, that is out of the question. We need a long term solution. I'm hoping for it to last 20-50 years

Here is a Tip Jar to make it happen.  If we collect $1000, we can pledge that into the KickSat program (the one on the kickstarter). For that we could get the Sprite dev kit and program it.  Or we could choose another way.

I don't think we should collect anything until we at least have a plan of action that is agreed upon.

So, hashing in unnecessary, and only good for style points Tongue

I propose a computer dedicated to running the node with a redundant storage medium obviously able to operate in space. I'm not sure whether HDD will work in space, so if not a HDD raid then SSD. It would be nice to have a hundred terabytes or so, so ensure this will be able to hold the entire chain. Who has calculations for how big it will be in 10,50,100 years?

Why don't we just claim that we have a cloaked satellite(s) in space that beams all relative information back to Earth, some of which is stored on the P2P network? Then sell sovereign memberships.

Wouldn't you rather own a part of a real satellite?

 Cool

Doesn't matter as long as pruning is enabled.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'
