SpaceX to Launch Dogecoin Paid DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon

Spacex, the pioneer private space agency founded by Elon Musk, announced it will launch the DOGE-1 mission to the moon in coordination with Geometric Energy Corporation (GEC). The mission, whose objective will be to deliver a commercial payload to the moon, was paid in full using Dogecoin, the meme coin that has been made popular by Musk himself.

DOGE-1 to The Moon

Spacex, the innovative space exploration company that has been a pioneer in commercial spaceflight and in its plans for a planned trip to Mars, has announced today a new mission called DOGE-1 in partnership with Geometric Energy Corporation, a renewable energy-based firm.

According to a PR statement, the first objective of the mission will be to put a commercial payload on the moon. But whats particular about this mission is that it was paid entirely on Dogecoin, the memecoin that has been adopted by several influencers after being popularized by Spacex CEO himself, Elon Musk.

Being the first commercial mission of this kind paid with cryptocurrency, DOGE-1 sets a precedent for payments in this aerospatial age, putting Dogecoin in a really special place amongst other cryptocurrencies. Tom Ochinero, Spacex Vice President of Commercial Sales, stressed that :

This mission will demonstrate the application of cryptocurrency beyond Earth orbit and set the foundation for interplanetary commerce. Were excited to launch DOGE-1 to the Moon!

The DOGE-1 payload consists of a 40Kg CubeSat that will deliver lunar data with integrated sensors, and banking-based payment solutions would not have been too much of a hassle to pay for the mission. GECs CEO Samuel Reid touched on this subject and stated that:

Having officially transacted with DOGE for a deal of this magnitude, Geometric Energy Corporation and Spacex have solidified DOGE as a unit of account for lunar business in the space sector
