• Tradingview sends Bitcoin into space and creates its first NFT

  • Bitcoin to the moon? Yes, thanks to Tradingview. in fact, the platform’s team of engineers has created a flight plan to get Tradingview’s charts to the stratosphere, some 35 kilometers above the Earth’s surface, “with screens and a special mechanic to withstand the extreme temperature and pressure conditions that exist at such altitudes”, as explained in a press release issued by the company.

    And to celebrate this bizarre event, Tradingview used blockchain technology, the very same technology that powers Ether, to create an NFT that captures photos of its charts in space.

    Tradingview’s NFT on Bitcoin

    This unforgeable token is located on Opensea and the auction will end in four days, on August 24 next year. The starting price had been 0.1 ETH and is now 0.1456 ETH, or $478.69 at the moment.

    In Tradingview’s Opensea profile, you can also find two other NFTs: one is a stock market chart of Virgin Galactics stock – currently costing 0.1ETH – and the other is a video called “All Time Highs,” which was launched in a sort of tarot space.

    The latter NFT also promises some unlockable content that will be announced after the auction ends.

    The description explains that the initiative started as a joke during April Fool’s Day 2021, but has been so successful that they want to make it a reality.

    Tradingview is one of the most visited websites by traders to see market trends and analysis of cryptocurrencies and stock markets.

    Bitcoin in space

    In 2019, Blockstream had also sent Bitcoin into space to have an alternative way to download Bitcoin full nodes in the absence of internet connectivity, for example, in the event of a coup, or for the poorest countries and the most remote corners of the planet.

    This solution is also motivated by privacy concerns, as anyone can see the IP address associated with their node, whereas it is much more difficult to connect with a satellite.
