The idea is to put a small advertising satellite called CubeReid in a low orbit, where companies can display banners and content.

in May, Elon Musk, announced that the company will launch dog -1The first mission to be fully funded using cryptocurrency Dogecoin. small satellite Cubesat To be launched is owned by a Canadian startup Engineering Energy Corporation.

New details emerged last week about GEC’s DOGE-1 mission, which will take off from a SpaceX Falcon 9 on a joint flight and the rocket will separate from the announcement platform as it ascends.

The satellite that will transmit the advertisement and put it into orbit will be launched by SpaceX

Details have been given Samuel Reed, CEO and co-founder of GEC, in an interview with Business Insider, where he predicted the launch of the satellite in 2022.

In the interview, Reid noted that customers will be able to buy screen time on ad spaces with cryptocurrency.

The idea is that interested parties get icons To control the pixels on the screen and to be able to choose their shape and the duration of the advertisement.

The platform will have five tokens of its own: Beta, Rho, Gamma, Kappa, and XI. Each token represents an aspect of the pixel screen ad experience design.

Beta represents the X coordinate, Rho controls the Y coordinate, Gamma determines the brightness level, Kappa determines the color scheme, and XI will determine the amount of time it plays on the pixel screen.

Regarding the cost of this particular form of promotion, Reed noted that he still does not know how much each CubeSat token is worth. But considering the amount of time, effort, and money that is spent just to put this ad platform out there, it sure isn’t going to be completely cheap.

However, the satellite advertisement will not be shown in the sky from Earth. Reed confirmed in his tweets that the CubeSat will not interfere with the night sky.

“Note that Geometric will never show space ads from Earth without the help of technology. It’s not annoying space ads that Geometric is planning, it’s simply transmitting data from captured screen space (which no one sees from Earth),” he wrote.

The idea is to use a 40K CubeSat attached to a kind of selfie stick that has a camera at the end that takes pictures from the CubeSat and broadcasts them directly to the Youtube NS Twitch.

“I am trying to achieve something that can democratize access to space and allow decentralized participation. I hope people will not spend money on something inappropriate, offensive or offensive,” he said.

Although this idea is taking shape, it is currently not clear the size of the ads, the number of ads that will be shown at the same time, the environmental impact of light pollution on local flora and fauna and the use of energy from the satellite.
