Foreword, 2001: A Space Odyssey

Behind every man now alive stand thirty ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living. Since the dawn of time, roughly a hundred billion human beings have walked the planet Earth.

Now this is an interesting number, for by a curious coincidence there are approximately a hundred billion stars in our local universe, the Milky Way. So for every man who has ever lived, in this Universe there shines a star.

But every one of those stars is a sun, often far more brilliant and glorious than the small, nearby star we call the Sun. And many - perhaps most - of those alien suns have planets circling them. So almost certainly there is enough land in the sky to give every member of the human species, back to the first ape-man, his own private, world-sized heaven - or hell.

Arthur C. Clarke, 1968

Dozens of new exoplanets are discovered every year

To date, over 3,800 exoplanets have been discovered. There are billions more waiting in the Milky Way. In 1968, that was speculation, hardly more than science fiction. Today astronomers are discovering new planets as fast as they get a coveted slice of telescope time.

The first expolanet, x, was discovered in 199x by x at y. x was discovered by the xx method. That is ...

Since then, astronomers employ yy and zz ...

The Cryptoplanet Registry

Cryptoplanets is the project which bring you the dream of buying and owning one of the many newly discovered exoplanets then registering your stake in an on-line distributed ledger.

Now a permenant, definitive, and tamper-proof registry of exoplanets based on blockchain technolorgy using Ethereum's ERC-721 standard.
The flexibility of the Ethereum cryptocurrency allows for smart contracts to be written on the immutible blockchain. The Ethereum platform already supports cutting edge projects too numerous to mention that are transforming the way we think of money and assets. ERC-721 is one of those standards already developed and battle-tested.
ERC-721 is a free and open standard that describes how to build unique assets on the Ethereum blockchain -- assets like a registry of deeds for exoplanets.
Each exoplanet shall live as a token on the Ethereum blockchain as a Cryptoplanet with the symbol CRXPL; permenantly stored, a records of sales, purchases, easements and betterments; unalteralble, unforgable, yet open and auditable for all to see.

Deeds for exoplanets will be available to be bought, registered, and traded at

A few thoughts on ownership.

A bank holds the title to my house. That is, until my mortgage is paid off. Yet, I cut the grass. I seal the doors and windows against winter rain. I cut down the creaking tree standing all too close to the eves. I do this because I own that house, the bank's major interest notwithstanding.

A storm does not care, nor does a forest fire, nor a ground-shifting earthquake. Forces of nature know not of deed or a title. Neither does the raccoon I left homeless cutting down that all-too-close tree.

A title or deed only represents an agreement between people and society. As does the concept of money. They work as long as they are recognized. In reality everything we concoct amongst ourselves that orders our lives and economy are meaningless in the cosmic scheme that spans millennia in time and light-years in distance. Yet, they satisfy us. For without such inventions we would never have emerged from chaos and would still be eating each other.

Why purchase exoplanets? Can you visit yours? Can you vacation on one? Can you exploit its mineral riches, its biological troves? Can you capitalize upon its strategic location? Would the local population besmirch upon hearing of your ownership of their world. That would be a civilization at least a million years ahead of ours, comparing to us as we compare to mold in a petri dish. But here, I digress.

Therefore, one may ask, what does investing in a Cryptoplanet represent? In a word, no more nor no less than investing in a cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin. Or, for that matter, the US dollar. No, seriously. Take out a dollar bill and look at it. The serial number conveys all intrinsic value in it. Burn it, except for the serial number, and it can still be replaced. Again, I digress.

What is the worth of an exoplanet backed by a Cryptoplanet registry title? It's worth what you invest in it, the betterments you put into it. The collection you create with it: i.e. a set of five Hot Jupiters are worth more than five disparate worlds.

And ultimately the worth is the agreed upon price between buyer and seller. The Cryptoplanet team makes no warranty about their value.

Although there are an indeterminate number of exoplanets in our galaxy, there is a limited supply of discovered exoplanets. About 3,800.

The numbers is growing. 560 in 2018 alone. There will always be more worlds added to the Cryptoplanet supply, but at a steady pace. The growth rate being a function of scientific discovery.

Founder and chief developer

Joseph Molnar has been developing software since he first placed fingers to keyboard in 1973 as part of the first of the first generation of teen coders. Since then he never looked back, building a lifetime of solid insight into the software development process to produce workable, valuable business solutions for real world organizations.

After watching fad after fad fizzle and crash after gloriously-hyped beginnings, it’s saying a lot that Mr. Molnar is building a blockchain project. With Cryptoplanets -- just as life imitates art -- Joe brings an extensible, expandable, multipurpose solution to fruition.

Software engineer, author, citizen scientist, gentleman adventurer, and seaker of all that is out of the ordinary.
