It was the latest episode s02e09. Unfortunately the seller wanted $50,000 dollars not bitcoins.
Also he didn't seem to realize his ip address could be traced -  to a specific seat in the corner of a bar.

Why does no one criticize the mail for this?
Someone needs to point out that international mail services (including the Royal Mail - God bless you Ma'am) are heavily involved in the procurement of illicit substances.
Why does Bitcoin get dragged through the dirt and yet no one ever accuses Fedex?

Because Fedex doesn't know but Bitcoin does

The exact line at 23m56s in Person of Interest S02E09 is as follows:

If d3mn8 discovers what's on the laptop, he may try to flip it. In which case he'd probably go to the dark net... try to sell it on Silk Road or one of those black market forums. I'll try to track him down and see if I can negotiate a meeting.

No, there was no direct mention of bitcoin in the episode. However, with such a specific mention of Silk Road, no doubt a good number of curious viewers tried googling for that in the last week ("fact or fiction?") and thus also learned of the existence of bitcoin for the first time Wink

According to Wikipedia, the episode had 14.18 million viewers in America, and that of course doesn't count the untold many, there and elsewhere, who torrented the episode after the fact (e.g. from The Pirate Bay).

Maybe too off-topic for off-topic but:

14.18 million human beings sitting on their backsides staring at a plastic box. Humanity could have done something wonderful with that time instead of squandering it. What an utter waste of human potential.

Because, for every evil in the world, if the perpetrator is part of the gang doing business as "government", he gets a magical pass made of unicorns and double standards.

Negro running drugs?  25 years in a cage.  Person doing business as "CIA" doing drugs?  Hero.

It's also exactly as insane as priests getting a free pass on diddling little children for centuries.

When magical thinking is involved, most people can't think straight.

That's the way this crazy world works.
