“We have worked in situations that demand secrecy and we are willing to offer our clients the opportunity to pay with a certain level of privacy,” said Charles Holmes, Director of Business Development, in interview with Hacked.

“However, due to CAA regulations our Flight Operations are transparent and we go beyond the level required in terms of notifications to local governing bodies.” Why Bitcoin? The company’s banking experience will be familiar to Bitcoin entrepreneurs.

“When we first began this adventure of starting a drone business, we contacted our banks for appointments to create a business account,” Holmes recalled. “While we awaited responses, we approached as many banks as we could and eventually found one willing to take our start-up capital. We get charged for having money, not having enough, for paying for things, and for the privilege of having an account. We would rather trade all this in for transaction fees and to be our own bank.”

The company loves Bitcoin and the promise that blockchain technology brings. He stated:“To offer our services for Bitcoin seems like the next logical step,” he said. “By being the world’s first drone company to offer services for Bitcoin we aim to capture a section of the market that wants to move forward with technology the way we do. We have to keep pushing technological boundaries and innovating past traditional dogma.”

In 2014, The Daedalus Group looked at three technologies that would be revolutionising our future: 3D printing, Bitcoin, and drones. “We lacked capital for mining on a large scale, and 3D printing technology was lacking finesse, so we decided on a drone company to specialise in aerial inspections and surveys.” So drones it was.

Holmes foresees a diverse drone industry in the future, and Bitcoin could play a role. “Delivery drones, security robots, and self-driving cars will all need a completely digital wallet to pay for repairs and to receive wages or payment for their actions,” he explicated. “Delivery drones using a blockchain to log their activities would improve customer satisfaction. Security robots logging information on a blockchain would help law enforcement by providing succinct information.

“Self-driving cars integrated with a blockchain system would log all of their travel details to enable concise fleet management. Bitcoin and blockchain technologies can propel other industries forward if we have the imagination and drive to achieve something new.”

For The Daedalus Group. drones are here to stay and will change almost every aspect of our lives. “The future of drones will include everything from asteroid mining to tiny inner-body autonomous vehicles,” Holmes said. Like Bitcoin, drones are a controversial industry.

“Drones in whichever form they take will most certainly create a much more cost effective and safer working environment but to the detriment of jobs for humans,” explained. “We are actively engaged in reducing the amount of time needed for inspections and surveys at height which impacts rope access trained individuals, scaffolding costs are no longer needed, and we are trying to reduce the need for ground-based mobile platforms.

“All of the traditional techniques for surveying at height are too expensive compared to our services and consequently there is less need for human interaction. In 6 hours of flight time last year we saved our clients £206,000 by replacing humans.”
