In May, Elon Musk‘s SpaceX secured a deal with the Canadian engineering firm Geometric Energy Corporation (GEC) to launch the Dogecoin-based DOGE-1 CubeSat to the Moon. Now, it transpires that the launch will include “Space Art”, to be sold as NFTs via Dogecoin.
In a bid to further tie the worlds of art and cryptocurrencies together, SpaceX and GEC will be reportedly launching “Space Art” into space by securing it onto the CubeSat itself. The art itself comes in the form of space plaques courtesy of Geometric Labs and Geometric Gamin Corporation, under the cryptocurrency token project names “Rho,” “Beta,” “Kappa,” “Gamma,” and “Xi.”
In a release, the PR firm connected to the venture posited that the project “[opens] up the possibility that the art could be programmable, changeable or even streamed back to Earth.”
For now, this is all there is to know. But in short, it seems that SpaceX and GEC will be launching “Space Art” to the moon that’s purchasable and funded by Dogecoin under the DOGE-1 mission. Stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for more information as news unfolds.
