Crypto and blockchain have just appeared in one of the latest episodes of “The Simpsons”, one of the most popular TV show. It featured Jim Parsons of Big Bang Theory who appeared as a guest to explain crypto and how blockchain works.
During the episode, Parsons gave a brief explanation on how blockchain is essential to the function of Bitcoin. He also explained how the chain works, like its distribution and how it blocks are added to the chain.
The song and dance was trying to predict that crypto will be the future money. The animated song goes like:
“Each day I’m closer, to being the cash of the future. Not in your wallet, I’m in your computer!”
In the concluding part of Jim’s talk, a subliminal message appeared on the screen which gave further explanation on how cryptos work. Part of the message goes like:
“In this system, rules are defined for the creation of additional units of cryptocurrency. They can be generated by fiat like traditional currency or just thrown around randomly or all given to LeBron.”
The crypto twitter community are rejoicing over the short crypto-related episode. Altcoin Daily took to twitter to spread the news.
Some comments to the tweet pointed out that the Simpsons has a good track record of accurate future predictions. 10 years ago, it showcased Donald Trump as the U.S. president and recently predicted the Game of Thrones Series finale.
With mainstream mentions of Bitcoin and blockchain by popular TV shows and outlets like Simpsons and CNN, it isn’t surprising that data indicates retail investors are returning into the industry.
