You can say Биткойн and cryptos are everywhere these days. One giant billboard here, some pamphlets over there, several thematic-buses in different countries, and an awful lot of ads on the Internet. But that’s not all, because Биткойн and cryptocurrencies have already jumped to the small and big screen.

От анимации до более серьезных тем, различные аспекты наших цифровых валют были изображены в более чем нескольких телешоу, сериалах и фильмах, помимо чисто документального или информативного жанра. Забавно, амбициозно или даже опасно, here we’ll check a list with some TV shows (and one movie) featuring Биткойн и криптовалюты.

Хорошая жена

This one probably was the first TV show featuring Биткойн in a whole chapter. In this legal series, the housewife Alicia Florrick sees like her husband, the former Cook County, Illinois State’s Attorney, is sent to jail following a notorious political corruption and sex scandal. Now alone, Alicia decides to retake her career as a lawyer to provide for her children.

Every episode uses to represent a different legal case for Alicia, and Биткойн appears in season 3, episode 13 Биткойн for dummies”, from January 15, 2012. The main plot focus on Dylan Stack, a lawyer who supposedly represents Satoshi Nakamoto, and who’s being pressured by the government to reveal the name of the anonymous Биткойн creator. They decided here it’d be illegal to compete with the U.S dollar, so, Биткойн is on the rocks.

Luckily, that worked out better in our world, and The Good Wife didn’t give us a bad prediction for the future’s Bitcoin legality, but a nice explanation of what it was when almost no one didn’t know.


This yellowish middle-class family has talked about every available trending topic since its debut on TV by 1989. The Simpson is the longest-running American sitcom, and weirdly someone hasn’t heard yet about the satirical adventures of Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart, and Maggie. They’re classic, and Биткойн couldn’t be missing into the series.

The first time Биткойн appeared in there was brief, in season 25, episode 7 “Yellow Subterfuge” (2013). The episode depicts an act of revenge on Skinner by Bart, but there’s also a section where Lisa learns Krusty the Clown has gone bankrupt. He mentions then he инвестировал в 1ТР6Т.  

Семь лет спустя Симпсон решил посвятить этой теме целый эпизод, на этот раз создание новой криптовалюты: Frinkcoin. Эта серия 13th 31 сезона и был запущен в феврале 2020 года. Мы можем наслаждаться сюжетом, в котором профессор Фринк создает свою собственную криптовалюту, временно став самым богатым человеком в Спрингфилде, опережая даже мистера Бернса. И Джим Парсонс (Теория большого взрыва) тоже там объясняет что такое блокчейн.

Теория большого взрыва

Talking about Jim Parsons, he portrayed the funny and endearing Sheldon Cooper in the popular Warner sitcom The Big Bang Theory. This show is centered on a particular geeky gang of scientists living in Pasadena, California: Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, and Raj, who one lucky day meet and befriend Penny, the beautiful waitress (and aspiring actress) who lives across the hall of Sheldon and Leonard’s apartment.

It’s usual to see these socially awkward guys in all kind of funny situations, and one day, when Биткойн was above $5.000 in 2017, they remembered their past investments in the cryptocurrency and decide to use them. Sadly, they can’t find now their funds inside the old wallet, and Sheldon may have something to do with it. This the 9th эпизод 11 сезона, называется “The Биткойн Entanglement”.


Similar to The Simpsons but with less yellow and even more dark comedy, Family Guy tell us the story of another animated middle-class family, the Griffins, conformed by Peter, Lois, Meg, Chris, Stewie, and their anthropomorphic pet dog, Brian. They’ve been dedicating to satirize about everything at hand, and Биткойн wouldn’t be the exception.

В 11th серия 14 сезона, “The Peanut Butter Kid” (2016), the family receives a letter from the bank and starts worrying about their financial future. Peter, the father, suggests “Биткойн” as the solution, but Lois, the mother, doesn’t agree. Considering BTC was around $440 at the time and now is over $10.300 (+2.240%), it may have actually been an excellent idea.

Grey’s Anatomy

This medical drama by ABC follows the life of Meredith Grey, a surgeon who’s starting her career in the fictional Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Along with her colleagues, Grey struggles to balance her personal life with stressful residency requirements. Meanwhile, we can peek into the treatment of the patients, often through complex surgeries and the existing competitiveness among the new doctors.

Sadly, Grey’s Anatomy decided to show the less kind side of Биткойн in the 8th серия 14 сезона, “Out of Nowhere” (2017). The hospital computer system is attacked then by ransomware, a powerful virus able to kidnap data and even hardware till a ransom (in Биткойн) is paid to the hacker. Monitors, phones, labs, and patient files go down, putting at risk the patients’ lives. The crew must decide then if pay the ransom or trust in the FBI and don’t pay it.


Этот триллер Джона Сталберга-младшего и Lionsgate считается первым высокобюджетным фильмом о криптовалютах. Он был запущен в 2019 году, и в его состав вошли такие фигуры, как Бо Кнапп (Дар), Алексис Бледел (Девочки Гилмор), Люк Хемсворт (Соседи), Джереми Харрис (Легион) и ветеран Курт Рассел (Стражи Галактики, том 2) ).

The story follows Martin “Marty” Duran, an anti-money laundering (AML) analyst at Omnicorp Bank headquarters in Manhattan. He breaks a millionaire deal for his company since he discovered the other enterprise involved was breaking AML official rules. As a result, he is demoted to a branch in his tiny hometown, but he still doesn’t want to stop his research, which finally leads him to a whole network of отмывание денег с помощью криптовалют гигантским врагом. И немного майнинг криптовалюты также.

The movie got some bad critics because some things may be off. Like the chosen cryptocurrency to launder the money: Биткойн, which has a transparent blockchain; or the fact that the plot isn’t especially surprising. However, “Crypto” can be considered as a pioneer that will pave the way for other films on the same theme in the future.

We need to say these stories aren’t always accurate about cryptocurrencies and blockchain, but undoubtedly they’re a nice proof of how much this topic already belongs to the general culture.
