The latest episode of The Simpsons, one of the longest-running American TV shows, has just explained how blockchain and cryptocurrencies work.
In the episode "Frinkcoin" (S31, E13), Professor Frink introduces cryptocurrency to Lisa Simpson via "TV's most beloved scientist, Mr. Jim Parsons" - who played Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory.
Parsons goes on to explain, "the really cool subject of distributed consensus-based cryptocurrency."
Pretty amazing stuff...they also called crypto the cash of the future. We all know how accurate The Simpsons are in predicting the future. 😉
