Dogecoin developers are working to integrate the Starlink satellite network built by the SpaceX company and run by billionaire Elon Musk, to make DOGE transactions offline.
Dogecoin (DOGE) integrates Elon Musk’s Starlink technology for offline transactions
Two key engineers working for the Dogecoin Foundation published a paper recently on using RadioDoge technology in conjunction with the Starlink satellite network to conduct DOGE transactions without using the Internet. The team admits there is still a long way to go, but the foundation is preparing to complete the final steps for future experiments.
Specifically, Timothy Stebbing – Product Lead and Michi Lumin, lead developer at Dogecoin Foundation, have teamed up to work on a new communication network that will allow users to trade Dogecoin offline. Provided that will only require support from the Starlink satellite network.
The key, he said, lies in a new technology called RadioDoge, a cheap and reliable radio technology (HF/LoRaWAN). Another important factor is GigaWallet, a groundbreaking project in DOGE’s 2022 roadmap that allows transactions to be made through a standardized unattended wallet integration with the Dogecoin network.
As for Michi Lumin, he said he has been working to set up a test center for RadioDoge for this new technology. Both developers expect the first transaction to be formed on Libdogecoin. First, the transaction will travel over 150 miles from Colorado to the center. The hub will then send transactions to the Dogecoin testnet via the Starlink satellite network.
Basically, Libdogecoin is a fully implemented version of the protocols built on DOGE, like a C library and a wide selection of popular programming languages that allow anyone to build a product. fully compliant with Dogecoin standards without having to worry about more complicated details.
However, the team hopes this breakthrough could stimulate Dogecoin adoption in more mainstream economies, making DOGE an efficient means of exchanging goods and services globally. More notably, the event took place at the same time when there were a lot of rumors suggesting that Elon Musk might soon accept payments in Dogecoin for SpaceX and Starlink.
The evidence becomes even more solid when it comes to the recent symbiotic relationships between Tesla and Dogecoin. Back in March of this year, Elon Musk once again proved to the community that his faith in Dogecoin is “undying” by claiming to still hold BTC, ETH and DOGE to hedge against inflation. He was even ready to propose DOGE as a means of payment for Twitter’s service just a few days after going public as Twitter’s largest shareholder.
