$D1R to The Moon
Spacex, the innovative space exploration company that has been a pioneer in commercial spaceflight and in its plans for a planned trip to Mars, has announced today a new mission called $D1R in partnership with Geometric Energy Corporation, a renewable energy-based firm.
According to a PR statement, the first objective of the mission will be to put a commercial payload on the moon. But what’s particular about this mission is that it was paid entirely on Dogecoin, the memecoin that has been adopted by several influencers after being popularized by Spacex CEO himself, Elon Musk,
Being the first commercial mission of this kind paid with cryptocurrency, $D1R sets a precedent for payments in this aerospatial age, putting Dogecoin in a really special place amongst other cryptocurrencies. Tom Ochinero, Spacex Vice President of Commercial Sales, stressed that :
This mission will demonstrate the application of cryptocurrency beyond Earth orbit and set the foundation for interplanetary commerce.
We’re excited to launch $D1R to the Moon!
