The future is Bitcoin, according to South Park creators


South Park, an animated series that often tackles current issues with a touch of humor, has shown that bitcoin has been used as a traditional payment method in the not-too-distant future.

In Thursday’s episode of “Post COVID” for its 24th season, South Park depicted one of the show’s protagonists, Stan Marsh, paying for a cheap hotel with Bitcoin (BTC) nearly 40 years later when the pandemic hit. Jokingly it will soon expire forever. The fictional Super 12 Motel Plus – in the future, as it will include nearly all brands plus and maxx – accepts only “Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies”, and the Marsh payment offer features a plastic card with the BTC logo and QR code.

“This is the future – we all decided that central banks were fraudulent, so we are relying more on fraudulent Ponzi schemes,” a hotel spokesperson said.

Many cryptocurrency insiders are familiar with South Park for his criticism of the US government and banking response to the 2008 financial crisis, popularized by the meme “ahh and… depositing it. Bank.” Other predictions for the future in the final episode include self-driving vehicles, digital assistants The anthropomorphic, stand-up comedy that becomes a shadow of itself in the environment of “wake-up” culture.

While it is now common in the mainstream media to refer to cryptocurrencies and blockchain, this was not always the case. The first BTC chain was The Good Wife in January 2012, but others have continued to use new technology and financial tools for both comedy and drama. This year, blacklisted character James Spader claimed to know the true identity of Satoshi, and The Simpsons revealed that the price of BTC has moved endlessly on a moving bar.

The appearance of Bitcoin in the popular animated series is due to the fact that the price of the crypto-asset has mostly remained below $60,000 for more than a week. According to Cointelegraph Markets Pro, BTC was at $59,237 at press time, down more than 14% since hitting $69,000 on November 10.
