Unizen are happy to announce a partnership with Geometric Energy Corporation (GEC) via ZenX Labs incubation.

GEC is a leading tech and research pioneer, focused on energy, engineering, space, development, and decentralization. Currently, GEC is working on building and launching DOGE-1, the first crypto-founded space mission to the Moon. Incubation at ZenX Labs will help the team to scale their innovation, establish strong DeFi infrastructure, and ensure full compliance.

As a part of the DOGE-1 mission, GEC is sending a Cubesat, the satellite, to the lunar orbit to gather spatial data with its on-board data sensors and cameras. GEC’s communication modules process the information and develop long-term frameworks for future space missions.

As a participant of ZenX Labs incubation program, GEC will also participate in DMAS. For staking $ZCX, users get multiple rewards — and XI Protocol tokens ($XI) will be among these assets.

Samuel Reid, CEO of GEC also responded to the partnership agreement, stating that “Geometric Energy Corporation is proud to partner with Unizen for pushing the boundaries of distributed ledger technology in space, and grateful for their ongoing collaboration to help bring us to the moon!”

GEC’s participation in the SpaceX mission marks a major milestone for cryptocurrency and DEFi. DOGE-1 mission is a history-making event for the entire DeFi community. Together, GEC and SpaceX will launch the first spacecraft that is funded entirely with crypto assets. The potential of DeFi in financing scientific advancements is employed to bring decentralized values to space exploration.

Tom Ochinero, SpaceX Vice President of Commercial Sales stated, “This mission will demonstrate the application of cryptocurrency beyond Earth orbit and set the foundation for interplanetary commerce. We’re excited to launch DOGE-1 to the Moon!”

Unizen’s cooperation with GEC shows a long-term commitment to decentralization values and technology from market-leading innovators. GEC’s incubation at ZenX Labs showcases a first-of-its-kind collaboration of scientific and tech teams working with DeFi and CeDeFi. We are incredibly honored to be chosen as partners to contribute to the success of a leading innovator and trailblazer, and the first crypto-founded space mission.

“Geometric Energy Corporation is a truly innovative and ambitious team with an impressive vision for the future and a deep belief in ever-expanding use cases. XI Protocol is a groundbreaking evolution in how space infrastructure connects to distributed ledger technology. Initially, this technology will enable satellite-based, space display screens (driven by tokenized claims) and the untapped realm of Web3 connected data reporting rewards on SATCOM communication networks. Unizen is thrilled to both incubate and onboard GEC’s XI Protocol to our strategic partners.”
