Dogecoin supporters have long said the token would shoot to the moon, and now, with the help of an aerospace company, it actually will.
Additionally, the lander will be taking a physical version of a Bitcoin to the moon , as well as a plate that includes a copy of the Bitcoin “Genesis Block,” the first block mined on the blockchain, sent by Bitcoin Magazine. Dogecoin prices are fueled largely by speculation, and an unlimited number of the tokens can be created, so any rally is often quick to dissipate. Despite the surge, by Friday afternoon the coin had retreated, but was still up about 3% on the day. Other leading cryptocurrencies were little changed on the day after a rally earlier this week, with Bitcoin up 1% over the past 24 hours at $36,300, and Ethereum down 1.5% to $1,900 as of publication.
