A physical form of Dogecoin (DOGE) will be sent to the moon by Pittsburgh-based Astrobotic Technology Inc. in late December 2024. It is a component of the project that the Dogecoin community first financed in 2015.

The meme coin will be shipped in a DHL Moonbox together with a Vulcan Centaur rocket from United Launch Alliance, according to Dogecoin’s X account.

On December 23, 2023, the mission is slated to launch from Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. According to CoinGecko, DOGE price increased 8.7% after the news broke, hitting $0.079 in the process.

In mid-May 2023, BitMEX planned to send the first tangible Bitcoin (BTC) to the moon in collaboration with Astrobotic and Bitcoin Magazine. It was anticipated at the time that the launch would occur in the summer of 2023 at the Kennedy Space Center.

Together with the actual Bitcoin, a noteworthy homage to Satoshi’s system was included in the lunar mission package. It was also planned to send a metal plate to the moon that would display the Genesis Block’s raw hex data from the Bitcoin blockchain. Since there haven’t been any updates since the announcement, it’s unknown whether the metal plate and the physical representation of Bitcoin have touched down on the moon.
