Latest episode of ‘the Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ involves massive Bitcoin bounty
Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the new Marvel Cinematic Universe show on the Disney+ streaming platform, has added a bitcoin (BTC) bonus to the new episode.
In the third episode, Power Broker, one of the characters receives a text message saying: Selby is dead. To his killers. The link, which appears about halfway through the story, is timely given the current bull market for bitcoin. At the time of publication, 1,000 BTC is equivalent to approximately $58.8 million.
The countdown for episode 3 The Falcon and the Winter Soldier takes about 24 minutes.
Reddit user Okitraz1986 discovered the link to bitcoin and posted his findings (along with a screenshot) on the Reddit r/Bitcoin forum on Friday :
I thought it was cool, so I decided to share it. Sure, it was way cooler when I got into bitcoin 5 years ago, but it’s always nice to see us making progress on the cultural touchstones.
Unfortunately, history so far shows that bitcoin is more likely to be used for the mafia than as an asset for public investment – which would probably be a more appropriate use, though not as thematically. Over the years, bitcoin has struggled to shed its known ties to nefarious activities, despite its growing legitimacy as a store of value similar to gold.
In late 2020, another TV show called Shameless also referred to bitcoin and Ethereum in an episode.
