With over 1900 cryptocurrencies currently being listed and live traded, the community has seen many different goals, objectives, as well as various purposes behind different ICOs, starting from simple ideas for making swift payments to investing in gold, earning with social networking, storage space renting and more with blockchain technology.
However, by far there hasn’t been a digital asset advocating for tokenizing universal human heritage – the Moon – as described in the official presentation of Diana DIA Token.
DIA Token is a presented as a unique ICO and monetized as DIA, set to solve the problem of owning the universal heritage that cannot belong to any country, in particular, referring to the Earth’s largest natural satellite – the moon. With issuing DIA tokens, Diana project is aiming at providing communities across the globe with a chance to own a portion of a natural cosmic heritage that is owned by no man or country.
DIA Token (DIA) and Portioning the Moon
DIA Token still can’t be found on Coin Market Cap as it hasn’t been officially launched yet, so for now, it only lives as a blockchain-based project inspired by the Moon.
The project is presented as a public blockchain for Moon registry, with “Own Your Moon” as their campaign motto, currently having a pre-sale that is scheduled to end in 55 days in accordance with the timer on Diana.io, the official platform of the project.
Dia Token pre-sale should accordingly end on November 1st when DIA tokens should be marked as officially launched.
What Diana project is aiming at is providing the communities across the world with moon portions, that way awarding them with ownership of the universal heritage as they are referring to the Moon. The ownership is established through tokenization of resources that can be found on the moon.
The network is blockchain-based, which means that is created to be open source and decentralized in the spirit of blockchain.
In accordance with video presentation published by the team, numerous countries are eyeing the moon as this natural satellite treasures many useful and expensive resources that can bring an immense wealth, so the team is searching for the answer to the question on how do we decide who owns the moon.
The Diana project is offering the answer to the ownership of the moon by tokenizing portions of this cosmic body and all the wealth that comes with its resources by issuing DIA tokens that claim the ownership of this common wealth.
The project is presented as the first solution of this kind, stating that the surface of the moon that equals 37.93 trillion square meters, divided into billions of different cells in accordance with the team’s plan.
Each cell is equal to one DIA token that holds the ownership of a single cell of the moon with the records of the ownership being permanently saved on the blockchain. The more DIA tokens are owned the greater the surface of the moon that a holder has.
Even though the idea sounds interesting, we are yet to see how DIA will perform once the token is issued, mostly regarding regulations that will surely apply somewhere in the future as this project poses a question on how can a common good be sold even through an ICO pre-sale if it’s common good of all citizens of the world that is at stake.
On the other hand, these tokens can help protect the ownership of valuable resources from countries and individuals that are interested in the wealth treasured by the Earth’s natural satellite.
How Does Dia Token (DIA) Work?
As stated there will be two different ERC-20 type of tokens on the network where DIA token will be issued with the first registration of users, proving ownership of a portion of the moon, presenting a token that cannot be divided.
The second token, MOND, will be used for transactions on the chain and should be super divisible. The minimum of DIA tokens that can be bought on pre-sale is 1000 DIA and the tokens can be traded in exchange for ETH for wallets that support ERC-20 type tokens.
The team is stressing out that the opportunity of owning a portion of the Moon with the tokenized ownership distributed through cells in form of DIA, while the official pre-sale of the token should end by November 1st with scheduled pre-sale bonuses.
