In the newest episode of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a new Marvel Cinematic Universe show on the Disney streaming platform has incorporated a Bitcoin (BTC) bounty.
‘Selby dead.BK Bounty for her killers’ is one of the messages sent by a character in episode three ‘Power Broker’
However, as regards to Bitcoin’s ongoing bull market, the reference which drops around the narrative halfway mark is timely. Also, recently $58.8 Million USD is equal to 1,000 BTC.
The Bitcoin reference has been spotted by Reddit user Okitraz1986 and which their findings have been posted on Reddit r/Bitcoin saying:
“Thought it was cool, figured I’d share. Mind you this was a lot cooler like 5 years ago back when i got into the bitcoin space but still nice to see we’re making headway into cultural touchstones.”
The story reveals that Bitcoin instead of being used as an asset for public investment, is being used by the people of the underworld which would arguably be a more apt use case, if not quite so thematic. Over the years, Bitcoin has found it difficult to shake its reputed connections to nefarious activity, despite increasing legitimacy as a store of value similar to gold.
