Since last year, I started a fundraiser on Tallycoin, the Bitcoin Patreon challenger, to support my activities for Space Education & Outreach. It was a bit to try out new Lightning Network services, like ZapRead, and was actually dormant, untill I shared my Blockstream Satellite 2.0 set-up on twitter, and bitcoin twitter got crazy! In addition to new donations, I have gained tens of new followers within a day or so!
After sharing a video, Bitcoin twitter got even more crazy, and I even had the pleasure to interact with a BSV follower, who thought this was all just hobby for fun (I mean, in no way will we get gigameg blocks down every 10 minutes from Space). Well, partly he is right, it is a lot of fun to bring Blockstream Satellite 2.0 up- and running, and doing all kind of experiments.
It is this kind of fun that I also want to bring about in my Space Education & Outreach activities. Whenever this Corona lockdown is over and schools and events are up and running again, I want to go out and tell the public about the wonders of space and the universe. At the same time, I want them to interact with my mobile Blockstream Satellite 2.0 set-up, and my Lacuna Space IOT terminal. I even want to donate such set-ups so they can experiment themselves.
For these things, I look for donations as schools often don't have the means to finance my Space Education & Outreach workshops. So chip in for the crowdfunding at Tallycoin, also with LN microdonations, and make it happen for kids at schools and events!
