The Space Economy, Deep Tech, and Beyond

The Space Economy is the 2nd course of a two-part series designed to be taken together or separately. Students interested in understanding the nexus of Blockchain and The Space Economy are strongly encouraged but not required to take the first course (either from a previous offering or last summer's IPSI), as some assumptions will be made by the instructors about the learners' general level of understanding of topics in blockchain and economics.

The first course (Week One) is the update of last summer's ISPI course to bring into the curriculum recent developments and activities in the blockchain and crypto industry since last summer. Since last summer, the value of the crypto industry has been approximately halved from $2T to $1T. Several technological advancements have occurred, along with numerous new multi-million dollar frauds and hacks.
