Seriously, when you’re taking a Dogecoin ‘to the moon’ hype literally. It’s not a prank anymore, with SpaceX latest announcement of sending a lunar mission next year which will be paid by cryptocurrency Dogecoin. The voyage will be called DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon.
“We’re excited to launch DOGE-1 to the moon,” according SpaceX Vice President of Commercial Sales Tom Ochinero said in a statement released by Geometric Energy. “This mission will demonstrate the application of cryptocurrency beyond Earth orbit and set the foundation for interplanetary commerce.”
Geometric Energy will fund the mission but some of the major details about the mission are vague right now. A Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled to be launched early next year with a mission to “obtain lunar-spatial intelligence from sensors and cameras on-board with integrated communications and computational systems,” according to the statement.
It could be a possible hint of lunar surveying or if you’ll believe it Elon Musk tweeted “SpaceX is going to put a literal Dogecoin on the literal moon.”
These recent Musk meme-worthy Dogecoin hype, making him the ‘Dogefather’ have propelled the cryptocurrency Dogecoin into a new all-time high from a cent last January to over 70 cents last week. However, his SNL appearance had his Dogecoin dumped below 50 cents immediately.
