SpaceX billionaire Elon Musk has announced on Thursday, April 1, that his space agency is looking to get Dogecoin in the Moon, literally. Based on one of his tweets today, the tech billionaire was quoted saying, SpaceX “will put a literal Dogecoin on the literal Moon.”
Of course, we still don’t know what this means. But, it is, as if Musk is suggesting to get his ‘favorite’ cryptocurrency to be the first human currency in the Moon. Is this real, or an old trick for April Fool’s Day?
Dogecoin: Moon’s first currency?
As said, on the day of April Fool’s Day, tech billionaire Elon Musk decided to make a tweet suggesting that SpaceX is looking to literally put Dogecoin as the first currency in the Moon.
Here’s the tweet:
Of course, no one knows whether this tweet is real or not. SpaceX pages also did not release any announcements that could support their CEO’s claim.
What we know, however, is that today is April Fool’s Day— that means Elon could be joking about his tweet. Real or not, his announcement of Dogecoin presence in the Moon can make a difference in its value, according to Independent UK.
Dogecoin spikes value
Just like predicted, Dogecoin’s value has impressively spiked its value after Elon’s statement about the Moon mission. According to Caitlin Ostroff from the Wall Street Journal, more than half an hour after his tweet, the Dogecoin value spiked to its highest rate so far with at least 13% from its original value.
If you are looking to buy Dogecoin in the market, here are the steps to take:
Before you think of buying any cryptocurrencies in the market, you need a valid photo ID (Drivers License, Passport, etc.), bank account and/or credit card.
- Open a Binance online account
- Begin transaction, make a “Buy Crypto”
- Confirm payment details
- View DOGE Wallet
And that’s it! Remember though, cryptocurrencies or online currencies cannot be easily predicted.
SpaceX to fly to the Moon
Though we still don’t know whether Elon’s joking on his latest tweet, SpaceX still have few years before its plans to push through the lunar missions using their rockets. According to its main page, SpaceX’s lunar mission will set to happen by 2023.
The project called as dearMoon project, led by billionaire Yusaku Maezawa, will use SpaceX rockets to fly humans in a single circumlunar trajectory around the Moon. In early March, Maezawa sent an invitation to everyone to take at least eight people, from Earth to Moon, and vice versa. The page says that this project is set to accomplish the space travel to take eight humans ‘further than any human has ever gone’ from Earth.
If you want to join the lunar travel, here are his requirements for you to join the journey:
- “Whatever activity you are into, by going to space, I hope that you can push its envelope, to help other people and greater society in some way.”
- “You have to be willing and able to support other crew members who share similar aspirations.”
