Tesla CEO Elon Musk has announced that he will be the first so-called memecoin to launch the crypto currency Dogecoin into space. Now the developers of the Dogebonk have anticipated it.

The Dogebonk has made it into space.

This is what

  • Elon Musk wanted to enable the first crypto-financed space mission with Dogecoin.

  • The developers of the Dogebonk show that this also works on a much smaller budget.

  • With a swipe at Musk, the Fun currency shot into space.

The digital currency Dogecoin is a so-called memecoin. The Dogecoin symbol shows the face of an Asian dog with large eyes. The cryptocurrency does not actually have any real use. It was developed as a pure fun currency and as a parody of the crypto primus Bitcoin and published in December 2013. Since then, the value of Dogecoin has temporarily increased by almost 70,000 percent.

The fun currency helped a large part of Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder Elon Musk to these unexpected heights when he mentioned Dogecoin on Twitter and has been promoting it since then. The US space company SpaceX plans to send a satellite to the moon in the coming year, which was financed entirely by Dogecoin.

Mockery for the richest person in the world

Elon Musk's dreams of the first crypto-financed space mission have suddenly come to an end. The developers of the Memecoins Dogebonk anticipated what is currently the richest person in the world – and on a much smaller budget. A video shows how a USB stick does its rounds high above the earth. There is now a lot of malice on Twitter about the 50-year-old Tesla CEO. The hashtag #SorryElon is currently trending on the short message service.

The Dogebonk developers couldn't resist a swipe at Elon Musk. On the poster, which also made it into space, it is written: “Sorry Elon, Dogebonk is the first Memecoin in space”. Obviously, Musk made the Bitcoin parody Dogecoin so popular that it is now being parodied itself.
