Musk promised to send Dogecoin to the moon, literally.
Just days after Musk joked about Dogecoin on SNL, the SpaceX CEO booked a mission to the moon that would be funded entirely by Dogecoin.
“SpaceX launching satellite Doge-1 to the moon next year,” Musk tweeted on May 9, 2021.
The satellite will be launched on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket as a secondary payload.
On Wednesday, the CEO of the company managing the DOGE-1 mission, Samuel Reid, confirmed that the mission is still in the works.
