The rise in the price of cryptocurrencies has been often accompanied by an increase of general interest by big institutional investors. At the end of 2017, we saw a lot more people enter the market who probably never even heard of cryptocurrency, nor the rise of the Bitcoin price and get involved with the space.
So as Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency industry grows to new heights, so does its adoption in the mainstream. Bitcoin has been mentioned in several films, TV shows, animations and in even more media ways over the past few years since it started to gain value and hit $20k in 2017.
The increase Bitcoin has had in pop culture has done just that. The growth is just as much as the cryptocurrency itself has had. Bitcoin is a dominating theme in several mainstream entertainment outlets which has sparked many memes over the years.
All these facets of popular culture in which Bitcoin and other digital currencies play big roles show us far they have come in such a short time. In one way or another, there is mainstream adoption for Bitcoin as well as other cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum and Dogecoin, as most people will have heard of Bitcoin by now.
We’re confident that the leading cryptocurrency has specifically been a key focus of mainstream media for quite some time now and it has played an important role in some the narrative for some TV shows including the Big Bang Theory and The Simpsons.
That being said, there is a significant amount of popular and mainstream artwork which shows Bitcoin in a positive light too. One image shows two people playing poker at a table, one is a miner and the other looks like a businessman from the future.
Even though the crypto revolution is still undergoing, references to Bitcoin in pop culture will continue to grow in the media, there’s no doubt about that.
