New television series cements the digital currency in primetime.
Bitcoin has made its way into the popular mind and most recently this can be seen with depictions in television, of which there have been a great many. But, perhaps most interesting, entire series are taking Bitcoin on as the main plot point, further cementing bitcoin’s relevance to mainstream culture.
In 2013, as the price of bitcoin skyrocketed to $1200, bitcoin creeped into the mainstream media dialogue. From there, it appeared in more than one movie. As the center of the film’s script, Bitcoin played a key role in the development of the film Dope alongside the darkweb. Then, in the film Deadpool, Bitcoin appeared in a small business as a payment means.
Mr. Robot appeared on the USA Network last year, and Bitcoin has played a key role in the script which revolves around hacktivists amid an economic crisis.
