In Brooklyn Nine-Nine S05E08 one character, DC Parlov, mentions Bitcoin at 12:55 and then it's mentioned again at 20:09 by Terry.

Interesting and thanks for reporting! This is a series I will definitely watch in the future. On Youtube I found a montage of scenes of Brookyln 99 where Bitcoin is mentioned. Can you match them to the episodes you mentioned or are these other spots in Brooklyn 99 where Bitcoin is mentioned?

That series is quite funny, indeed!

The youtube video you found matches the S05E08 episode I mentioned, but not the S06E04. If I find something I will post it here.

In the film "Integrity," a large amount of stolen money needs to be laundered, and they operate through such channels as antiques, real estate, luxury goods, Bitcoin, etc.

Thanks, I added both to the list in the opening post. Please post here if you find more scenes.

The Movie "Midnight in Paris" talks about bitcoin.  (The father of the bride is an investment banker and talks about the "Silicon Valley Bitcoin Investors").

What's interesting about it is that the movie came out in 2010.




TV Series.

I'm surprised you don't have Blindspot on your list.  One of the reoccurring characters (who becomes a central character later in the series) is "Rich Dot-Com" who built his fortune on bitcoin hidden in a brain wallet.

Have just recalled another movie:

Bastille Day.

Set in Paris on the titular Bastille Day, a riot occurs in Paris culminating in the storming of a bank with the Police then counter storming the bank.  The Police are corrupt (!) and have used the riot as a front to access the bank's vaults to steal Bitcoin.

I should add my recollection of the film is that they steal "Bitcoin", however, Wikipedia says "Bertrand escapes with the USB flash drive on which the money has been downloaded" so this may need to be verified if anyone can get their hands on a print of the film.

series
The good Fight
season 5 episode 4

if ever you want to verify any show/movie quickly without needing to seek and watch hours of video.. just search the tv episode/movies subtitles. open srt file in notepad and 'find' function 'bitcoin'
takes seconds

subtitle:
00:33:18,866 --> 00:33:21,651
And now it's like you need a
permission slip to tell a joke.

00:33:21,695 --> 00:33:24,306
Yeah, and that's why
I printed up these.

00:33:25,090 --> 00:33:26,526
Boom.

00:33:26,569 --> 00:33:28,963
Oh, my God, a permit to
tell a joke. I love it.

00:33:29,007 --> 00:33:30,312
Hey, you can have that one.

00:33:30,356 --> 00:33:32,029
Uh, I don't think I
should make a Black joke.

00:33:32,053 --> 00:33:33,141
Well, I can handle it.

00:33:33,185 --> 00:33:35,056
- Can I get a Jewish one?

00:33:35,100 --> 00:33:36,753
Here.

00:33:36,797 --> 00:33:39,930
- Jay, you want one?
- Shit, I want more than one. Come on.

00:33:39,974 --> 00:33:42,368
So, what? You're just
going to hand these around?

00:33:42,411 --> 00:33:43,978
Yeah, like trading
cards or Bitcoin.

I should add my recollection of the film is that they steal "Bitcoin", however, Wikipedia says "Bertrand escapes with the USB flash drive on which the money has been downloaded" so this may need to be verified if anyone can get their hands on a print of the film.
subtitle find - mentions cryptocurrency and NFT but not bitcoin
00:03:19,549 --> 00:03:22,302
Are you familiar with Deep Net
cryptocurrency transactions?

556
00:24:10,013 --> 00:24:11,580
NFT fraud.

557
00:24:11,624 --> 00:24:13,103
I don't know what that is.

558
00:24:13,147 --> 00:24:15,105
Non-fungible token.

559
00:24:15,149 --> 00:24:17,281
Someone sold a painting
that was a NFT fake.

560
00:24:17,325 --> 00:24:19,762
And they're suing
them for $4 million.

I added "How to sell drugs online (fast)" season 3 to the list. The new season was released a few days ago and like in the previous seasons Bitcoin plays a mature role again. It is mentioned and shown several times. Bitcoin is the main currency used to store the value. I personally am a fan of the show. The third season was the best so far and the ending remains open enough that there is room for a fourth season. I hope for it.

Here is the trailer for all who are interested https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoRlXpi7NDs.


PS: To all the other series/episodes posted, I will look into it and add it soon, just a little busy at the moment Smiley

Thank you very much for the tip! I didn't know there was a movie that mentioned Bitcoin so early and addressed the topic. Is there any proof? To the game a film snippet about it on youtube?

Walk with God"
The screenwriter is great, there are three parts.
I've watched it before and I forgot which clip it was, but the movie mentioned cryptocurrency and also talked about a lot of investment plots, and other plots are also very good.

Oh, I almost forget!

I also added "Shiny_Flakes: The Teenage Drug Lord", a Netflix documentary about a German teenage drug lord who set up and run one of the most thriving drug marketplaces from his children's room from 2014-2015 before he was caught. He was sentenced to 7 years in prison and released early in 2020 for good behavior.  He plays himself in the documentary.

In total, he took about $4 million or 15k bitcoin in 1.5 years. Of that, only $300k in Bitcoin has been recovered by police to date. Only one out of three wallets could be cracked.  

The guy is the model for the Netflix series "How to sell drugs online (fast)".

Was about to add Start-Up, but I guess I'm a year late, since it was released 2020, this thread is quite neat and handy, I can't provide anything yet since the last series I've watched is Start-Up, will provide some films/series to this thread once I start bingeing some Netflix films/series/documentaries.  Wink

Do you mean the series StartUp aired on Crackle? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/StartUp_(TV_series)

If so, it is already in the list. The series is not very new either. The first season premiered back in 2016. Unfortunately, it was discontinued after 3 seasons, although there would have been more to the story. Too bad, I was a fan of the series.

movie "sweet girl"
staring jason momoa
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10731768/

it was a quick scene of relative unimportance and no explanation... so not sure it really counts.

scene doesnt explain anything to the un-initiated so it can be just glazed over and forgotten. surprised it wasnt edited out of the scene due to its unimportance to the plot for those that dont know.

but for the initiated the girl went in there to get some cash converted(but to anyone else it looks like she coulda just been asking for directions. (saying thanks and then leaving))
