Dogecoin community plans to send a physical token to the moon in a December mission by space payload transporter Astrobotic. This is the latest move by the popular meme-inspired cryptocurrency community.
Background on Dogecoin
Dogecoin started as a joke cryptocurrency in 2013 but has since grown a large online community and market capitalization of over $8 billion. The Dogecoin community is known for their memes, generosity, and crowdfunding various projects.
Sending Dogecoin to the Moon
The community has raised over $30,000 to send a physical Dogecoin token aboard Astrobotic’s Peregrine lunar lander in December. The token will be loaded onto Astrobotic’s Griffin lunar lander and sent to the moon along with other payloads.
This is not the first time the Dogecoin community has funded a moon mission. They previously raised over $50,000 in 2014 to send a physical Dogecoin token to the moon aboard a NASA rocket. However, the rocket exploded during takeoff.
Significance of Mission
This mission represents the perseverance and camaraderie of the Dogecoin community. Despite setbacks, they have once again crowdfunded a project that brings publicity to Dogecoin. The meme token continues to defy skeptics and cement its place in crypto culture.
Sending a Dogecoin to the moon also ties into the community’s goal to literally take Dogecoin “to the moon” – a rallying cry to push the price higher. This mission brings them one step closer to that goal in a literal and symbolic sense.
The Dogecoin community has shown incredible resilience by continuing to crowdfund moon missions after past failed attempts. Sending a physical Dogecoin token to the moon on the Peregrine lander will be a monumental achievement for this passionate group. It demonstrates the power of an online community banding together around a singular (and silly) goal.
