The Main goal of this thesis is to explore the application of CubeSats towards mining of Cryptocurrencies using sustainable source of energy. I propose an architectural layout where all the entities that are involved in the CubeSat satellite acting as a node and providing a design to the CubeSat where the Solar energy is turned into electricity. At the end I will point out the advantages of mining using the CubeSats in space vs traditional mining terrestrially.
