Of course, you’ve heard of the phrase ‘(crypto name) is going to the moon’, because it’s what everyone says when they think that a crypto is about to do really well. However, there is one crypto in particular that is aiming to achieve this, literally.

Elon Musk claimed earlier in May that it would send DOGE to the moon by accepting the crypto as payment, and now BitMEX is taking it a step further and claiming that they are going to put a physical wallet that contains Bitcoin on the moon’s surface. The wallet will be in the form of a coin to commemorate the moment.


BitMEX is teaming up with Astrobotics to achieve this, and the landing is scheduled for the end of 2021, just ahead of Elon’s plans with DOGE. In fact, rumor has it that the two have a healthy rivalry going on.
