The new season of popular TV Show Mr. Robot is almost upon us. A “bridging” episode between the end of season one and the upcoming season aired about a week ago. For people who have paid close attention to detail, the number of Bitcoin references in this episode was amazing. Interestingly enough, the “doom scenario” pictured in that episode is not that unlikely.
Mr. Robot Paints An Interesting Bitcoin Future
There were many positive Bitcoin references to take away from this particular episode. Although some people may wonder how the Mr. Robot episode got leaked on the internet, it appears USA Network aired it on purpose. Interestingly enough, they did so three days before the broadcast of season two would begin, which is scheduled to air later today.
In this particular episode, we saw the downfall of the financial ecosystem as we know it. Banks could not process transactions, see a history of bills being paid, or even close accounts. They simply had no idea how much money their clients owned, and they could not guarantee the cash reserves to pay out balances in full if they knew how much was involved.
