Making space accessible and affordable to all, Copernic Space and Lunar Outpost mint first true Moon asset on Polygon.


The Web3 marketplace for space assets, Copernic Space, minted and launched the first tokenized space asset sale using Polygon. Featuring Lunar Outpost's MAPP Rover, the launch enables access by the retail market into the soon-to-be one trillion dollar space economy.

The first tokenized space asset minted represents 3.475kg of payload space on Lunar Outpost's MAPP Rover destined for the Moon. The Space Asset is tied to an NFT that can be fractionalized into smaller units, allowing buyers to own and create subsequent space assets to be sold.


The space asset marketplace chose to work with and mint the asset on Polygon due to their collaborative approach, but most importantly Polygon's capability to minimize transaction costs and maximize speed. These features allow Copernic Space to make the asset fractionalizable, accessible and affordable for the retail market.

"The key for us is that Polygon provides high scalability and low transaction costs. We don't want to be treated as a ludicrous novelty, or another NFT pulling money out of the retail market. We are delivering a needed solution and economic operating system for the space economy, which creates true, commercial space assets" - said Grant Blaisdell, CEO of Copernic Space.

Thanks to fractionalization of space assets, they are available and affordable for the retail market. At the same time, Polygon's attributes allow buyers and sellers to save on transaction fees. Polygon's multichain enables cross-chain integration without using Ethereum's primary chain but leverages Ethereum's interoperability, security, and reliability. Therefore, minimal adaptation was needed for Copernic Space. "The key for us is that Polygon provides high scalability and low transaction costs.

The NFT representing the payload space is currently sold exclusively in a Physical Payload Sale through the Copernic Space marketplace. The sale allows buyers of the 100g minimum to send their physical cargo to the Moon and receive an NFT representing their payload ownership. The NFT can be transformed into Virtual Payload, allowing for fractional ownership and further utilities tied to their physical cargo ownership.

Polygon announced the plan to achieve carbon-negative status in 2022 as Copernic Space's work on Polygon sets an upcoming standard for space that enable economic access for millions across the globe.
