SpaceX’s big new rocket ‘Falcon Heavy’ has blasted off on its first test flight, carrying a red sports car into space. Recent rumors suggest the Tesla Roadster isn’t the only stowaway on board.
After a troubled start to 2018, Bitcoin tumbled over 60% to a low of $6000 USD. Many claimed the bubble had finally burst, but the price has started climbing back over the past 48 hours and is currently up 30%.
Some concerns have risen around the timing of the price rise.
“There’s no way that’s a coincidence. They’ve piggybacked off years of SpaceX research.”
Insider Stephen Binancie says we could be witnessing a modern-day ‘space race’, between SpaceX and the top-ranked cryptocurrency, with both parties hell-bent on reaching the moon first.
“Decades ago it was the USA vs Russia, now it’s SpaceX vs Bitcoin.”
“We should’ve known to expect such dirty tactics, who the hell is Satoshi Nakamoto anyway?”
The Falcon Heavy rose from the same launch pad used by NASA nearly 50 years ago to send men to the Moon.
Can Bitcoin follow suit?
