Sun will fly on a New Shepard flight with another five people in 2022. With this, he will become the first blockchain leader and international diplomat to go up to space. Blue Origin completed its first human flight on July 20 this year. The organization envisions a future of millions living and working in space for the benefit of Earth.

They made a successful return from suborbital space above a globally recognized space boundary, the Kármán line.

Part of the initiative involves a campaign called “Sea of Stars”, named after a Chinese idiom conveying that Earth is not where human life ends, but where it starts for future generations. The next true frontier is the vast expanse of the Sea of Stars. Justin Sun will nominate five exceptional people to travel with him up into space in the next months.

Nominees can also include long-term holders of TRON’s token TRX, BitTorrent (BTT/USD), and other associated cryptocurrencies as well as leaders from the art, fashion, space, entrepreneurship, and tech industries.  

Justin Sun commented:

With the rapid development of commercial aerospace, entering space may become a dream that every person can realize in his or her lifetime. We are entering the era of great spaceflight. This great journey requires more people to get involved. The initiative of Blue Origin to take more people to space to see Earth as our singular common home is extraordinary. Club for the Future offers a way to use that experience to inspire youth around the world to dream and act on their dreams of science, technology, and space exploration. I felt compelled to help further that vision through my bid.
