The artwork — which takes the shape of space plaques provided by Geometric Labs and Gamin Corporation, reportedly bears cryptocurrency project names “Rho,” “Beta,” “Kappa,” “Gamma,” and “Xi.”
DOGE traded 1.74% lower at $0.31 over 24-hours leading up to press time. The Shiba Inu-themed cryptocurrency has declined 8.16% over seven days.
Against Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), DOGE rose 1.94% and 2.96% respectively over 24-hours.
Why It Matters: The art included as a payload on the CubeSat satellite — to be launched by Geometric Energy and SpaceX — could be “programmable, changeable or even streamed back to Earth,” as per the public relations firm connected to the venture, Hypebeast reported.
