I am Gabi, the founder of Iasinspace.ro project, that will launch the first helium balloon into the stratosphere from Iasi, Romania.
Ever since I was a kid, I was fascinated by space.
I always knew there are many things waiting to be discovered.
As Disney said, "ideas come out of curiosity"; I I took the words
seriously and began to follow my curiosity, bringing it to another
Therefore, I want to launch a weather balloon into the stratosphere. It
will measure temperature, humidity, space radiation and make some
spectacular photographs of the Earth's curvature. But what makes this
experiment unique in Romania is that it will be the first cryptographic
transaction at high altitude.
I have custom designed a program in Labview that will send 5 evergreencoin/5 min
straight from a helium ballon using a Raspberry Pi2 platform and a
GPS/GPRS modem. The cool part is that it embeds your name, mail address,
the gps location and the altitude in each transaction.
I am planning to send 30 EGC transactions during the flight so if you
want to be a part of this experiment and support the EGC, you can donate
EverGreenCoin and enjoy the ride.
I will also send the first romanian coffee in space, the first romanian videoclip in space, and I will 3d print the names of our backers and will send them out there in stratosphere.

I have also custom designed a "space strato ticket", and I believe it is cool.
