Tron founder Justin Sun wins an auction for a space flight on Blue Origin’s New Shepard. He bought all the seats at once and will give tickets to representatives of the cryptocurrency industry.
Blue Origin is owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. The New Shepard made its first manned flight this summer. On board were Jeff Bezos with his brother Mark, Mercury 13 participant Wally Funk and 18-year-old school graduate Oliver Damen from the Netherlands.
(1/12)6 months ago, I was lucky enough to win the auction of Blue Origin’s first launch! Today, I announce that I’m launching the “Sea of Stars” campaign, which will select 5 warriors to explore space with me in 2022! @blueorigin @clubforfuture!

Interestingly, in the first flight, instead of Daiman, Justin Sun was supposed to participate, but he had to skip the trip into space. But in the upcoming flight, in addition to the founder of Tron, a representative of Tron DAO, participants in the “world of technology and art”, as well as an “extremely famous and influential celebrity” will participate. The flight participants will be selected through a campaign called “Sea of Stars” and will be named later in 2022.
“Being in space has been my dream since childhood, because this is the future of all mankind. And I would like to share my joy with the Tron community and all cryptocurrency enthusiasts. It will be a delightful journey, “wrote Justin Sun.
Sun may have missed the New Shepard’s maiden flight due to his involvement in a research project at the Central Party School, the institution of higher education of the Chinese Communist Party.
