“Genesis Mining made both financial and bitcoin history recently by sending a 3D model of a bitcoin with a paper wallet 34 kilometers into space, then sending 1 BTC to the wallet from Planet Earth, completing the first-ever peer-to-peer financial transaction in space. ”
A youtube video recorded the 34-kilometer space journey, along with the transaction being made on a laptop screen back on Planet Earth. The viewer is able to see vast views of the earth from a vantage point as it moves through space. The journey took place in the United Kingdom.
The space transaction symbolizes the cryptocurrency’s one time “to the moon!” mantra when the cryptocurrency was posting exponential growth, according to Marco Streng, CEO and co-founder of Genesis Mining.
“We thought that the value would continue climbing until it reached the moon,” Streng told Hacked.
