The leading digital asset bitcoin was mentioned on the action drama television show â€œThe Falcon and the Winter Soldier.â€ The reference to bitcoin was caught by a Redditor while he was watching the most recent episode. Itâ€™s not the first time bitcoin has been mentioned on television and surely wonâ€™t be the last.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and the 1K Bitcoin Bounty
On Friday, a member of the Reddit forum r/bitcoin posted a screenshot of a message inside the TV show â€œThe Falcon and the Winter Soldier.â€ The show stems from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is streamed on the Disney+ platform. The picture the Redditor shared was for a BTC bounty and it said: â€œSelby dead. â‚¿1K BOUNTY for her killers.â€
Bitcoin.com readers can check out the reference in episode three dubbed the â€œPower Broker.â€ At the time of publication, a 1,000 BTC bounty would be close to $60 million U.S. dollars.
The Redditor said he thought it was cool, but it was a lot cooler when BTC was mentioned on TV years ago. He said:
â€˜Just Paypal Me Some Bitcoinsâ€™
Of course, many bitcoiners know that BTC has been mentioned on TV many times in the past. Just recently, the television show â€œShamelessâ€ referenced bitcoin (BTC) and ethereum (ETH). BTCâ€™s first TV mention was on the episode of â€œThe Good Wifeâ€ back in 2012 and Krusty the Clown from â€œThe Simpsonsâ€ mentioned BTC the following year. On December 12, 2013, the now-deceased Alex Trebek used the digital asset in Jeopardy season 30.
Of course, the question was â€œWhat is bitcoin,â€ and the digital asset has continued to be named on popular television shows. BTC has appeared on shows like â€œMorgan Spurlock Inside Man,â€ â€œNavy CIS LA,â€ â€œAlmost Human,â€ â€œHouse of Cards,â€ â€œMr. Robot,â€ and more. â€œJust Paypal me some bitcoins,â€ they said on the well-known broadcast â€œParks and Recreationâ€ back in 2014.
