The stars are aligning for the launch of the DOGE-1 lunar satellite.
DOGE-1 was first announced in May 2021, the day after Elon’s SNL appearance, with a planned launch for the following year.
Since then, the DogeArmy has kept the faith through countless rumors and delays.
Last week, the DOGE-1 lunar satellite made its biggest strides toward launch to date. We now have solid evidence that the moon mission is on the horizon.
The latest news came fast and furious. First, on Tuesday, Elon engaged with a DOGE-1 post that included a new launch date of January 12th, 2024.
The same day, Samuel Reid announced that DOGE-1 has received approval from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, an important step on the way toward getting full FCC approval. Reid is CEO of Geometric Energy Corporation, the maker of DOGE-1.
The next day, Reid posted a cryptic message to “Expect the unexpected,” which was reposted by GEC.
The day after that, the Federal Communications Commission gave DOGE-1 full license to launch.
During a Spaces event the same day, Reid celebrated the news, while advising that it didn’t mean the January 12 launch date was guaranteed.
His note of caution didn’t stop DOGE-1 from trending.
Monday morning, Reid posted that DOGE-1 had secured another advertising client: a Web3 music, NFT, and gaming company called The HUSL.
DOGE-1 ads will feature on both the satellite itself and an Internet video feed, with possible plans to stream the feed to various locations on Earth.
The DOGE-1 news comes during a time of heightened positivity in the Dogecoin community.
On December 23rd, a physical Dogecoin will travel on the Peregrine-1 lunar lander as part of a separate moon mission.
All the anticipation has been a boon for Dogecoin’s price, which tapped nine cents late last evening and again tonight.
More broadly, crypto hype is back on the menu thanks to the expectation that a Bitcoin ETF will finally be approved in the coming months. Throughout the bullish period for digital currency markets, Dogecoin has consistently outperformed other cryptos.
The timely developments coincided with two larger milestones for Doge.
First, in late November, Dogecoin passed five million unique addresses holding a balance on its blockchain. This number does not include exchange wallets, which can represent thousands of retail customers.
In two days, on December 6th, Dogecoin will turn 10 years old, marking a full decade since Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer connected online to transmute the white-hot Doge meme into a unique form of Internet money.
The flurry of positivity is well deserved for the Dogecoin community, which has remained optimistic through ups and downs over the last three years.
As the sense of expectation rises around Dogecoin, it’s always worth keeping Elon’s pithy crypto maxim in mind: No highs, no lows, only Doge.
