NASA’s Mining Pool Might Soon be a ‘Constellation of Satellites’

CoinTelegraph spoke with Gabi Dumitriu, the founder of, an organization that aims to create the first “constellation of satellites” running a grid network in space that would orbit the Earth and help the International Space Station to process large volumes of data much faster.

By harnessing the processing power of a decentralized computer grid and the space environment that’s “ideal for spinning disk drives,” agencies like NASA can potentially process data more efficiently and less costly than traditional data processing centers, while rewarding and helping its users pursue a career in space exploration, create jobs and open up opportunities for scientists, researches and students.

CoinTelegraph: How did you come up with this idea? What problem does it solve?

Gabi Dumitriu: Ever since I can remember, I had a passion for discovering new things. I have always known that there is much more out there ready for me to be discovered.

It is not a secret anymore that the technology in today’s world is shifting from closed to open — closed architecture to open architecture, with everything moving to the cloud; closed networks to open networks; closed systems to open systems.

And just like Disney used to say that “Ideas come from curiosity,”
