Bitcoin is going to the Moon.

In November of 2021, BitMEX and Astrobotic are sending a unique physical coin to the Moon, loaded with 1 Bitcoin.

The coin will be a registered payload on the Peregrine-1 manifest, and will remain in situ on the Moon’s surface until any enterprising soul goes to collect it. It will have a public vanity address allowing anyone interested to witness its redemption or add some Sats if you’re feeling generous.

Join us in celebrating Bitcoin's lasting impact upon the world.

Come and Get It.

When the physical coin lands, it will remain on the Moon until anyone deems it worthy of retrieval. Decades from now, what will it be worth?

This project underlines BitMEX's faith in the resiliency of the Bitcoin Protocol and ensures this world-changing cryptocurrency will be a part of this historic journey.  It will be a time capsule that captures one of the most significant inventions in recent history, perfectly preserved for future generations.

Bitcoin will change forever.

We're Getting Physical.

Peregrine-1 is Astrobotic`s first commercial lunar lander due to launch in November 2021. It’s another giant leap in space travel and marks the first Western soft landing on the Moon since the Apollo missions of the 1960s and ‘70s.


The payload is occupying an official slot on the manifest. It will be the first-ever bitcoin to be on the surface of the Moon, with photographic evidence taken to prove it!

How do we know? 

We're putting it there.

A one-of-a-kind physical coin marks the momentous event. One side dedicated to the triumphs of aerospace, the other to crypto. Capturing this historic moment in time, the coin shows the current Bitcoin hashrate, the year, and a quote from Satoshi Nakamoto.

Only one coin will be sent to the Moon, but a limited edition series of Bitcoin-loaded commemorative coins will be made available on Earth before the launch.
