Nexus Group, an innovative and rapidly growing product company, developing identity solutions for physical and digital access, has announced its partnership with Vector, a nanosatellite launch company. Two companies aim to deploy a cryptocurrency on a satellite orbiting the earth using Vector's GalacticSky Software-Defined Satellite platform.

This partnership will bring the use for GalacticSky's technology, prove the versatility of the platform and allow future Vector customers to pay for launches using NXS, which is a cryptocurrency of Nexus.

The capabilities provided by the GalacticSky platform, combined with the flexibility of Vector's launch model, bring us one step closer to accomplishing our mission of providing the world with a decentralized currency that can be accessed virtually anywhere, anytime.
