SpaceX, LunarCrush To Send Crypto To The Lunar Surface
A prominent cryptocurrency company, LunarCrush, has declared that in the fall of this year it will send a private key to a bitcoin wallet containing 62 BTC to the moon via a SpaceX rocket.
According to Joe Vezzani, CEO of LunarCrush, the goal of this feat is “to inspire people to establish networks that will open a new era of exploration”.
A quote from his press statement reads:
“It’s like Willy Wonka’s ‘golden ticket’ to the Web3 era, and we couldn’t be more excited to see how it all plays out.”
$1.7 Million Bitcoin Reward on the Moon
The company guarantees the security of the wallet, which includes around $1.7 million in BTC at the current price of the coin, because not even its employees will know the code.
The stakes can be raised though, because the wallet is public and anyone can put some money in it.
According to a recent official press release, the Bitcoin reward, codenamed Nakamoto 1, will be available to the first person to reach the moon and retrieve the private key of a crypto wallet enrolled in the Lunar Outpost MAPP Rover.
Treasure Hunt for 62 BTCs
Finding the 62 Bitcoins will be like going on a treasure hunt, and this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for crypto and treasure hunters to share a common interest.
The launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the rover and its cryptocurrency is scheduled for June.
MAPP will be sent to the moon and installed near the south pole so Nokia’s wireless network can be tested for two weeks, Futurism.com said.
The rover will be left in the hands of any interested extraterrestrial cryptocurrency seekers upon completion of its mission.
“When you set a seemingly unattainable goal, the innovation that happens can be incredible. Our goal is to inspire people to build communities that will open a new era of exploration,” said Vezzani.
doctor Forrest Meyen, Director of Strategy at Lunar Outpost, says that seemingly fantastic ideas can actually lead to discoveries of previously unknown territories beyond human consciousness.
“Future generations will see us as pioneers of interplanetary exploration and adventure,” said Meyen.
