Hey Waivly Crew! 🌊 The world is fully embracing the future. Miami has announced its own cryptocurrency making its debut later this month called MiamiCoin, and SpaceX is about to get its own Netflix documentary series.
We're also going full force into the future 👀 We're now taking this newsletter from Tuesday's, Thursday's, and Saturday's, to every single day of the week. The support on this newsletter has been amazing and we can't thank you all enough. We're super excited to move up to sharing The Wave with you all even more.
Miami launches its own cryptocurrency
It looks like Miami will be the first city to debut its own cryptocurrency later this month, with the most basic name possible.. MiamiCoin.
Making its debut this summer
Miami is debuting a cryptocurrency this summer, to raise funding for local projects. Anyone can now mine MiamiCoin, with 30% of miners’ forwarded STX is directed towards a wallet reserved for Miami, and the remaining 70% can be stacked to yield STX and BTC.
The first CityCoin
According to CityCoin's website, the company behind MiamiCoin, “MiamiCoin is the first CityCoin to market, built to support the Magic City while rewarding its holders through the Stacks Protocol.”
Can you spend MiamiCoin?
Even though it is a digital currency, you'll not be able to spend it within the city, as Federal law prohibits cities from having their currencies. However, in the upcoming years, MiamiCoin will keep getting better, introducing uses like local benefits, trading, lending, access control, and more.
Space X is getting a Netflix documentary
Inspiration4 is getting a documentary on Netflix. In an announcement, Netflix revealed it would release a five-episode series on the mission.
Countdown to SpaceX's documentary
The Inspiration4 space mission will launch on a SpaceX rocket later next month. The entire process of the all-civilian astronauts getting trained, and launching into orbit will be recorded as part of a Netflix series titled: Countdown: Inspiration4 Mission To Space.
What is Inspiration4?
Inspiration4 is an all-civilian Spaceflight crew that is going on a three-day flight to low Earth orbit. The private flight is paid for by billionaire Jared Isaacman, CEO and founder of Shift4 Payments.
An incredible crew
Isaacman will not be going alone, he will be joined by Sian Proctor, professor of geoscience, Christopher Sembroski, an Air Force veteran, and Hayley Arceneaux, a physician assistant at St. Jude's Hospital and pediatric cancer survivor in the SpaceX Dragon capsule.
For a good cause
If you're wondering the purpose of the mission, Jared is using the flight to raise $200 million for St. Jude Children Research Hospital, on top of the $100 million he donated back when the mission was announced.
