Elon Musk will launch Doge to the Moon, literally

Elon Musk will launch Doge to the Moon, literally

Earlier, Elon Musk tweeted his plans to launch the DOGE-1 satellite to the Moon. We are no longer talking about Elon's so much-loved Dogecoin pump, but a real space mission to be carried out by his company SpaceX.

Indeed, the news is out that Musk's dream will soon become true, as early as 2022.

Two blockchain projects and Geometric Energy Corporation (GEC) of Canada, which owns the satellite, will bring the mission to life.

It will be the first cryptocurrency-funded space project (Dogecoin).

Unlike other satellites launched into low-Earth orbit, DOGE-1 will orbit the Moon and travel 400,000 kilometers away from Earth. It will be the first satellite ever to reach the Moon.

DOGE-1 will be delivered by SpaceX's Falcon 9. We expect its launch in the first quarter of 2022.

Tom Ochinero, Vice President of commercial sales at SpaceX, said that the mission should prove the possibility of using cryptocurrencies beyond Earth's orbit and lay the groundwork for interplanetary trade. Nothing more, nothing less.
