Introducing the First-Ever Financial Asset in Space

May 18, 2023

We’ve partnered with Astrobotic Technology Inc. and Bitcoin Magazine to send the first physical Bitcoin to the Moon. The successful landing will also mark the first Western soft lunar landing since NASA’s Apollo 17 mission in 1972. Since the mission was revealed in 2021 at Bitcoin Miami, rigorous preparation has been undertaken to ensure the physical Bitcoin wallet is space ready. Loaded with 1 BTC and engraved with a public address and a private key, this marks the first-ever financial asset sent to space. The successful landing of the physical Bitcoin on the lunar surface by commercial lunar lander Peregrine-1 will mark the first step of creating a monetary system for a space economy.
