LunarCrush Sends Bitcoin and NFTs to the Moon! Literally πŸš€πŸŒ”πŸ”

Social intelligence platform for crypto, stocks and NFTs – LunarCrush is about to take a crypto game to the next level. It’s launching an interplanetary treasure hunt that combines cryptocurrency with the thrill of space exploration. πŸ’°πŸ”¦

The company announced plans to send a treasure chest containing 62 BTC (roughly $1.7M), as well as other crypto assets and NFTs, to the moon. The treasure chest, named Nakamoto_1, will be unlocked by the first space traveler to reach the moon and obtain the private key etched onto a Lunar Outpost MAPP Rover that is scheduled to launch in Q4 of this year. πŸš€

To make this happen, the company has partnered with an impressive crowd:

  • πŸ‘‰ Lunar Outpost, a global leader in commercial planetary mobility
  • πŸ‘‰ Animation studio – Golden Wolf
  • πŸ‘‰ Bitcoin developer tools company – Hiro.

LunarCrush’s goal is to inspire the next generation of interplanetary exploration through this innovative Web3-powered space race.

The funding for the treasure chest will come from an initial NFT mint and secondary sales. The proceeds from the NFT sales will be used to support Bitcoin core development, as well as international STEM education initiatives for women. The treasure chest will also include DOGE, ETH, historical Counterparty NFTs, Ordinals, and a collection of special edition art curated by GigaChadPepe (GCP), an early NFT collector from the days of Counterparty.

The collection features eight artists, six on Ethereum and two on Counterparty, who have each created a pair of art pieces, one for Earth and one bound for the moon. Each artist presents their interpretation of the 1-of-2 approach, be it with a diptych, yin/yang or two identical editions. These artists were carefully chosen for this collection as they exemplify diverse styles and have all adopted and championed crypto and digital arts in their own unique way.

The artists, artwork, and mint dates will be revealed ahead of the rocket launch that will take the Lunar Outpost MAPP Rover to the moon. The Earth-bound pieces, which constitute half of the total collection, will be available for public mint. The sale started on March 28th, although the mint is currently paused, with the next batch set to release soon.

The process of engraving the private key onto the rover will be fully documented, ensuring transparency and security. Once the rover lands on the moon, anyone on Earth can create a plan to reach it and unlock the bounty of digital gold. The exact launch date of the rover via a SpaceX rocket has not yet been disclosed for security reasons.

LunarCrush’s CEO, Joe Vezzani, said:Β 

"Our goal is to inspire people to build communities that will unlock a new era of exploration. We envision classrooms, groups, companies, and even DAOs coming together to reach the Moon and split the treasure chest's rewards."

In addition to the excitement of the treasure hunt, the choice of Bitcoin as the currency for the bounty is significant. Bitcoin is considered the most long-lasting, secure, and future-proof form of money, making it a fitting choice for this interplanetary adventure. Alex Miller, CEO of Hiro, said:

"We're excited to inspire a new generation of space explorers as they make that next small step for the world."

Dr. Forrest Meyen, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Lunar Outpost, added:

"Future generations will look to us as pioneers of interplanetary exploration and adventure."

πŸ€” In conclusion, it’s worth noticing that LunarCrush’s Nakamoto_1 treasure hunt is not only an innovative venture that combines the excitement of cryptocurrency with the thrill of space exploration, but also a strategic move to capture the attention of both the crypto and space communities. The integration of NFTs, Bitcoin, and other crypto assets, combined with the collaboration with renowned artists, makes this treasure hunt a unique and buzz-worthy event. With anticipation building for the NFT sales, rover launch, and eventual moon treasure hunt, LunarCrush is poised to make headlines and leave a lasting impression as pioneers of interplanetary exploration and adventure in the Web3 era.

Get ready to witness history in the making as the crypto chest lands on the moon, igniting a new era of excitement, curiosity, and possibilities in the world of cryptocurrency and beyond.
