What is When Moon??

Back to Glossary

‘When Moon?’ is a common phrase and meme within the crypto community used to ask when a cryptocurrency will significantly appreciate in value. It is typically used on social media sites like Twitter and Reddit.

The phrase is meant to be a short form version or abbreviation of “when will it go to the moon?”.

When moon also contains two humorous side or meta meanings. The first jokingly conveys the impatience of a short-term trader, hence the reluctance to type the entire sentence. The second points to the absurdity of asking a relatively unknowable question. 

When moon example:

“I just bought some Bitcoin, when moon?”. 

What does mooning mean?

In crypto, mooning means that the price of a crypto asset increases drastically in value.  In other words, the price is going so high that it will reach the moon.

When will Bitcoin moon? 

It’s impossible to predict with any certainty when any cryptocurrency will moon. However, Bitcoin does tend to follow a pattern of significant price appreciation approximately every four years or 210,000 blocks (after a supply halving). The next supply halving is expected to occur in March of 2024. That being said there are no guarantees that this pattern will continue.
