The second season of Netflix series ‘Altered Carbon’ is the latest mainstream show to feature cryptocurrency, this time as a widely adopted mode of payment set in the year 2400.
Fans of Altered Carbon are not the only ones happy about the recent release of its second season. The crypto community is, too, and here is why.
An episode of Altered Carbon Season 2 shows a shop that sells items that can be bought using selected cryptocurrencies as the primary mode of payment, hinting cryptocurrency will replace fiat money.
Twitter account mineZcash shared a screenshot of the scene where the character browses through items on the shelf, the prices of which are shown in BTC, LTC, XMR, ETH, and DCR.
Altered Carbon, which is an American cyberpunk series based on the 2002 novel of the same title, features a fictional world where people can inhabit other people’s bodies while retaining their minds.
The catch is that it is set almost 400 years from today. And having cryptocurrencies function as a payment means by then says so much about crypto’s role in the next hundreds of years.
It can be recalled that The Simpsons last week dedicated over 80 seconds of its episode 13 of season 31 to talk about cryptocurrency, calling it the cash of the future.
Despite the rather slow crypto adoption rate as of this writing, many are optimistic about a future wherein cryptocurrency will be used by everyone in the world.
This mindset, which has become commonly exhibited in mainstream media, is a good indication that society continues to warm up to the very idea of cryptocurrency as well as its use in daily living.
Meanwhile, using crypto to buy food and pay for services is the ideal set-up many crypto enthusiasts envision. But a large portion of the crypto community also sees the trend and awareness today as a good boost for the Bitcoin casino market.
Crypto iGaming remains a strong sector that provides significant support for the growth and adoption of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Being one of the industries where Bitcoin and later on other cryptocurrencies flourished, crypto iGaming is expected to thrive even more in the future and may one day be the more popular way of playing casino games and betting on sports and esports.
