Copernic Space and Lunar Autopost will launch a public sale of token lunar landing payloads in the fourth quarter of 2022.
According to an announcement on Wednesday, Copernica and space robotics company Lunar Outpost, the blockchain novel, will sell payloads aboard a ship in the form of non-inflatable tokens, or NFTs.
Business and retail buyers will be able to purchase, retail and resell NFTs for cargo aboard the Lunar Outposts M1 MAPP rover.
The ownership of the NFT allegedly confers ownership of the vehicle’s payload, indicated in kilograms (kg).
In a letter to Cointelegraph, Copernican Space co-founder and CEO Grant Blaisedale said the sale covers 3.5 kilograms of payload available at an initial price of $4.25 million per kilogram.
Blaisdell said it would take at least 100g of purchase to use the payload. However, the head of Copernic Space said that small purchases are possible, noting:
“They can buy smaller and divided quantities, whether it’s 10g or 1/10g. I mean, the unique rarity of having a piece of finite origin always found on the Moon literally exists, but the intrinsic rarity arises from the specific use of space itself, if your cargo space contains On an actual payload, perhaps the NFT associated with it has an extra level of exclusivity compared to one who doesn’t.”
Blaisdell also commented that the payload-NFT could be split into smaller pieces to make the asset more accessible to potential buyers. Blaisdell has already told Cointelegraph that the partial NFT model will be used in other spacecraft, including spacecraft and satellites.

According to the announcement, Copernic Space and Lunar Outpost plan to launch other NFTs that will provide more rover access after the moon landing.
As previously reported by Cointelegraph, partial NFT projects have gained traction in recent months and appear to lower the barrier to owning a non-inflatable token.
However, some regulators state that partial NFTs can constitute investment contracts, making them securities.
