The famous actor of The Big Bang Theory appears in the last chapter of The Simpsons explaining what cryptocurrencies are.
During the last episode of The Simpsons, not only the name of the cryptocurrencies appeared, but also a detailed explanation of them.
This explanation came from the cartoon of a very relevant television character: Jim Parsons, the actor who plays the Sheldon, the protagonist of the television series The Big Bang Theory.
Both comedy giants come together to review what cryptocurrencies are. The program segment talks about the complex world of crypto, managing to analyze the issue so that anyone can probably understand it.
Frinkcoin: The Simpsons episode about cryptocurrencies
According to a press release, the program that appeared last night on Fox tells the story of Lisa, who must write an essay on the subject: “The most interesting person I know.” Her parents, Homer and Marge, compete to be the ones represented in the essay, but the girl chooses Professor Frink. Frink is developing a cryptocurrency, “Frinkcoin,” and manages to overcome old Mr. Burn, by becoming the richest man in Springfield.
In the Frink chapter he shows Lisa a video in which The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons (in cartoon) appears, talking about “the really cool theme of distribution based on cryptocurrency consensus.”
It also explains:
“For cryptocurrencies to work, we need a record of every transaction that occurs. These are recorded in what is called a distributed ledger. ”
There is the cartoon that represents the animated accounting book, which sings a blues with the explanation:
“I am a consensus of shared and synchronized digital data
It spread across multiple platforms from Shanghai to Grenada.
Every day I am closer to being effective in the future.
Not in your wallet, I’m on your computer. “
Also, Parsons explains:
“When you use the currency, the transaction is recorded in the ledger, and when an accounting book is filled, we add it to a chain of previous books: that is Blockchain.”
The fragment of the Parsons program in The Simpsons ends with a final text that analyzes the crypto space, stresses that they are currencies without a central self but, instead, it is based on a distributed, non-centralized consensus owned by cryptocurrencies.
