The Simpsons, one of the most popular animated comedy series in television history, made a somewhat optimistic prediction about the bitcoin price.
On Sunday’s episode of the 31-year-old Burger Kings animated series, characters enter the financial market to gain shares in a new burger chain created by billionaire Montgomery Burns. When Marge makes a profit during an episode of Mad Money – apparently a parody of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money – the tape channel clearly displays the price of Bitcoin (BTC) next to an unlimited green icon.
Other comedic predictions include a quarter-point drop in the value of the entire US, a trillion increase in GameStop’s stake, and Tesla, “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.”
This isn’t the first time a cryptocurrency has appeared on The Simpsons. In 2020, actor Jim Parsons appeared as a guest star explaining cryptocurrencies and how the distributed ledger works. The actor called the cryptocurrency “money of the future” before the shocking text emerged that “it could be created using fiat currency as traditional currency, or simply randomly discarded or given to LeBron.”
Some might see Bitcoin’s debut as a bullish brand. Given that the asset’s price crossed $ 60K again on Monday, only the endless increase is enough to fulfill the expectations of The Simpsons. Perhaps due to the large number of topics covered in the show, it seems that The Simpsons have predicted the future multiple times. Some examples include the Donald Trump presidency, the three Super Balls, and various technological innovations such as video chatting, smartwatches, and auto-correction.
Although the show appeared to have used media interest in Bitcoin as a climax, players in the industry have made their optimistic forecasts in recent weeks. Kraken CEO Jesse Powell said last month that the price of Bitcoin will eventually go indefinitely and that cryptocurrencies are expected to reach $ 1 million in the next decade.
