cryptocurrency really seems to be the way to go, this is because more platforms are now accepting cryptocurrency as payment instead of traditional money. Space X is the latest on the bandwagon as they are now accepting payment in Dogecoin to fund a satellite named DOGE-1 to the moon.
DOGE-1 is even named after Dogecoin this is because Elon Musk who is the founder of Space X is one of the coin’s highest-profile supporters. It seems that Elon Musk really want Dogecoin to succeed that is why he continues to tweet Dogecoin memes and also refer to himself as “Dogefather”
The DOGE-1 satellite will launch in a Falcon 9 rocket from Space X station to the moon to carry out “lunar-spatial intelligence” using onboard cameras and sensors. This satellite is being sent to the moon by a company called Geometric Energy Corporation, the station will launch the satellite in the first quarter of 2022.
The Geometric Energy Corporation’s CEO says the transaction “solidified DOGE as a unit of account for lunar business in the space sector.” This mission is going to signify a new use and solidify Dogecoin’s position for the space exploration payment.
