The Ant Arctic Lab Ultimate Sailing Challenge is an epic voyage being undertaken by Norbert Sedlacek Koch and a team of sailors and yacht builders, designers, architects, and engineers. Koch will complete the journey of 34,000 nautical miles single-handedly and without assistance. The team has been long hard at work crafting the vessel to make it all possible, pushing the envelope in terms of technology, software, and engineering.
faizod was recruited by the team to supply them with faizod.GPS-Blockchain Tracker software. As Koch embarks on the journey, his path will be seamlessly tracked and recorded in a Blockchain. The software developed by our team pulls the GPS coordinates and transfers them to the Blockchain, recording coordinates as transactions.
The first attempt at the world record started on July 29th, 2018, and after 3 days Sedlacek decided to turn back to France and give the project another year’s time for technological optimization in the face of harsh weather conditions. faizod’s GPS-Blockchain Tracker functioned without problems and the AAL will be utilizing the software again next year.
