Space May Hold the Key To Bitcoin Final Moon Mission and Flipping Gold8.2

Space might be the final frontier, but it also might end up being the final showdown between crypto asset Bitcoin and the precious metal and chemical element known as gold. In a wild story that sounds like it was ripped from the pages of science fiction novels, NASA is planning a space mission to an asteroid comprised of previous metals – such as gold – to conduct extensive scientific research that could uncover the viability of mining the astroid for the supposed over $10 quadrillion worth it contains.

While such an event is many years away, if asteroid mining companies are able to tap into the golden goose of a rock, it could considerably throw off the supply of gold, rendering it virtually worthless. Such an event would also propel Bitcoin significantly, and really highlight the importance of its hard-coded digital scarcity compared to the perceived scarcity of its physical counterpart.
