The hot cryptocurrency Doge will soon be going to the moon and we mean that literally.
SpaceX will launch the “DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon” in the first quarter of next year, with Elon Musk’s rocket company, which NASA currently uses, accepting the meme-inspired cryptocurrency dogecoin as payment.
“SpaceX launching satellite Doge-1 to the moon next year – Mission paid for in Doge – 1st crypto in space – 1st meme in space”, Musk said in a tweet.
“This mission will demonstrate the application of cryptocurrency beyond Earth orbit and set the foundation for interplanetary commerce”, SpaceX Vice President of Commercial Sales Tom Ochinero was quoted as saying in the statement released by Geometric Energy.
Musk said on Twitter in April that SpaceX was going to put a “literal Dogecoin on the literal moon”.
Dogecoin has become the latest hit in the crypto world as many celebrities have celebrated its existence.
