I think having bitcoin appear in movies and seires is a good thing in spreading bitcoin to the world. There are so many people who would rather spend hours watching movies but will never spend two minutes reading a book or reading anything online. Bitcoin could be chipped into movies and series and some little things can be discussed about it. It may not be much but should be able to send a good educative message that will make one want to search the internet for more information. Bitcoin appearing in all the movies and series you listed is good and am sure there are a whole lot of others you may have omitted. we should have more movies with bitcoin being used as a means of transaction in the movie. we just have to use all means available in spreading the word about bitcoin to the world even with movies.

You also forgot to mention "Dope". This 2015 American crime comedy-drama featured Bitcoin front and center, as a group of high school friends become entangled in a mess of crimes. They find themselves in possession of molly they must get rid of, and begin doing so through the darknet website. The film, executive produced by Pharrell Williams, is the only mainstream film featuring Bitcoin as a focal point of the plotline.

Thanks, but take a look at the opening post. It is already mentioned. As far as I could remember, it even was one of the first movies listed on the thread Smiley

It is really a good thing bitcoin is appearing in series and films making it possible for people who are movie freaks but don't have the patient to look online for upcoming or fast growing technology to see things related to bitcoin. No doubt as these movies and series are playing, very short but educative messages about bitcoin can be paased to viewers. These viewers will no doubt get some indirect messages about bitcoin which will be stored in their mind and maybe tempted to do research on bitcoin more later for investment purpose.

There was a whole episode of "The Good Wife" in 2011 about Bitcoin.

You probably mean season 3 episode 13 of Good Wife which is already listed in the opening post. If there is another one please report.

Also, it's mentioned in almost every Netflix original series. Orphan Black, The Lone Survivor, Disjointed...to name a few.

Thanks for the hint. I am currently looking for new series I can start. I will see if the three mentioned series appealed to me. If so, then I will list the individual episodes and position where Bitcoin is mentioned.

happy to see btc in this movies, the question is how has this appearance in all this movies and series been able to help btc? i usually wonder if viewers of this movies even pay attention to the mention of btc or at the end of the movie does it make them to want to use their google search engine to do more research about btc enough to want to be a part of this great community! i think this will be effective if people come into crypto because of the movie they watched where btc or atls where mentioned.

Bitcoin was a part of a sub plot in the HBO series Euphoria where one of the characters asks how it works so she can start accepting it for online payments. They at least briefly sum it up fairly well to the laymen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nQG6soZa0E

Bitcoin was also very briefly mentioned on the Netlix series Safe, but it was just a passing comment and not really related to anything. I had to turn the subtitles on because I wasn't even 100% sure he said bitcoin but just coins, but the subtitles confirmed it. It was in episode 5 at around 19:08: https://www.netflix.com/title/80201500

I'm sure I've seen a couple of other films/Tv shows the past year or so where bitcoin has been mentioned that hasn't been noted in this thread but I'm struggling to recall them.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6O30nJ02PU

I just watched the 2020 film Fantasy Island. Not a great movie, but they mentioned bitcoin at around 31.43. Another only brief mention in passing but still nice to see bitcoin entering the minds of screenwriters. I wonder when we'll start to see some films based around or heavily involved with bitcoin.

Might be worth keeping an eye on this link to see what pops up: https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=bitcoin

Bitcoin Heist film about bitcoin which illustrates a prediction that the price will rise sharply, in the ending that a father asks for thousands of bitcoin for his son's future
if you think about it, it is truly perfect for the future of their children, maybe someone has been inspired to buy bitcoin from the movie Bitcoin Heist and has already gotten high profits when bitcoin prices are high.

whether in the present year there will be films like that again ?

After not updating the thread at all for a long time and only sporadically in the past months, I will now do regular updates again if there are new movies and series.



Bitcoin is mentioned in the 3rd season of the series Person of Interest, at least twice in the "plane episode" (13). Its also mentioned in a previous episode, some guy made "a million and a half in bitcoin".

Thanks, but this is already mentioned in the list.

1. Blackhat - A Hacker based movie where hacker used BTC as their payment method.
2. Hacker - There they also used it.
3. Unfriended Dark Web

Could not find any hint on the web that Bitcoin is mentioned in these movies. Can you provide more information like where it is mentioned (at what point in the film) or do you know any Youtube clips?

Added Season 1 and 2 of Netflix' series "How to sell drugs online (fast)".

Netflix Trailer S1
Netflix Trailer S2

It's a series about normal guys who are going to build up an international drug sale on the dark web from their child's room. While in the first season, Bitcoin and crypto currencies plays only a minor role, it becomes a main role in the second season.

There's a bitcoin reference in the very first episode of Future Man :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rTcnXPesxs

And there are A LOT of crypto references in the 5th season of Billions. Axelrod has invested in a mine which gets closed by the authorities and his son uses his school's electricity to try and mine some crypto.

as a fan of the big bang theory series, I think that this series is the closest representation of us (at least me).
they are nerds, tech geeks, and enthusiasts.
I believe that the early members of this forum were here because of the technology too, they were enthusiastic about a new thing.
you guys, should watch that series.

Thanks for reporting! I am going to add it to the list Smiley Do you know the season and episode of this snippet or is it a movie?

Did a quick search. Do you mean this short documentary? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6sOFXHlhuE

I am a fan of Big Bang Theory. But with the exception of one episode (which is already in the list) the series does not deal with Bitcoin and crypto currencies, although one might expect this from nerds more often.
