Will Humanity Achieve Immortality in the Near Future?
For millennia Immortality has been the greatest dream of humanity. The brightest minds have tried to solve its mysteries, but despite the support of the richest people on Earth, to no avail. Well, at least in the “becoming immortal” part. In terms of longevity, humanity went a long way in recent decades. And today, when longevity research is backed by big tech companies from Silicon Valley, the progress in studies of longevity and immortality is accelerating.
How can we achieve immortality?
There are two basic approaches to the mortality problem. The first one is to ensure longevity. Of course, living up to 120-150 years is not true immortality, but it is a lot better than the current situation, isn’t it? And, by the way, 120-150 years is not an arbitrary figure: according to a paper, published in May 2021 by a joint research team from the US, the United Kingdom, Singapore and Russia, that’s the natural human lifespan. We don’t live this long only because of diseases and stress.
The second approach is so-called “mind upload” or “digital immortality”. Basically, it is exactly what it sounds – a person uploads their memory into a computer with a sophisticated AI that simulates their personality and thus “lives” forever. It may seem like stuff from sci-fi, but it may be closer than we think.
Data exchange has become a vital part of longevity research, and blockchain technologies can greatly facilitate it. Blockchain can make secure data transfer faster and cheaper. Therefore, research centers will be able to dedicate more time and resources to the research itself, instead of dealing with data exchange. Moreover, blockchain will even remove the issue of plagiarism which haunts data exchange between research teams at the moment. The “2045 Strategic Social Initiative” project claims that in 17 years it will release digital “avatars”, Microsoft claims that all the conversations an average person takes part during the entire live take less than a terabyte to store. And, by the way, William Shatner (Captain Kirk from Star Trek), is having a hologram of himself created. This hologram will be able to interact with other people after Shathner dies.
Blockchain can aid longevity research
Blockchain technologies can become an invaluable aid to longevity research in multiple ways at once. The Moon Rabbit project is a great example of it.
Moon Rabbit is a digital infrastructure platform, created specifically for supporting longevity research projects. It provides an unlimited number of subchains (jurisdictions) that can be used for supporting certain projects. Jurisdictions can provide incentives for research teams, facilitate data exchange, provide additional sources of finances and so on. Moreover, as all jurisdictions operate on a single platform it is much easier to set up data exchange between different teams, institutions and projects without any interference from borders and politicians and with reliable copyright protection.
The main focus of the Moon Rabbit project is supporting biotech research, but jurisdictions are not limited in what approach to immortality and longevity they support, as long as it fits within the common platform’s theme. For example, a digital immortality project can use a Moon Rabbit jurisdiction to raise funds or ensure reliable data storage for “mind upload” experiments.
The Moon Rabbit project’s founder is Angel Versetti – one of the most successful and influential businessmen in crypto. Versetti was instrumental for Bitcoin’s initial success, and one of the key investors in Ethereum ICO, DOGEcoin, AAVE and dozens of other decentralized projects. Not only does he have the necessary expertise to make the project successful, but he is also extremely well connected in the financial and blockchain circles. So we can be sure that the Moon Rabbit project will enjoy support from the most influential people on the planet.
