Bitcoin will be showcased on another TV show this upcoming Thursday, the 30th on the American Network CBS. The Big Bang Theory (BBT), will base its entire episode around Bitcoin as its cast will find a laptop full of the cryptocurrency.
The BBT is currently airing its 11th season and is one of America’s most popular sitcoms. The show is centered around a group of friends who lean more on the ‘geeky’ genius side that reside in Pasadena, California. CBS’s top-rated show is infused with comic book collections, video games, and endless scientific humor.
Thursday’s show will be called “The Bitcoin Entanglement” and will expose millions of viewers to the world of cryptocurrency.
For those familiar with the show, the BBT cast will find a laptop belonging to an ex of Penny’s that hold Bitcoins. The group is surprised that a single Bitcoin costs $5,000 USD and remembers that they “mined” some a while back. They all join in on a conversation as to how they would spend their Bitcoin money but decide to remove the show’s main character, Sheldon, from the investment split. Sheldon decides to mess with the gang, who discovers that the Bitcoin wallet is empty but Sheldon’s the only one that knows where these funds are stored.
