With a team full of cyberpunks and synthwave/retrowave heads, the latest season of the transhumanist world of Altered Carbon obviously top our must-watch Netflix show of the month that we ought to devote eight hours of our lifetime for it. But thanks to fellow Takeshi Kovacs and Falcon’s viewers, we noticed an easter egg that is worth sharing with the blockchain & crypto community. And it’s not about three Takeshi Kovacs’s sleeves in this season.
Back with the second season of Altered Carbon, Netflix launched the episodes of the sequence on February 27. That means, all of the episodes of the second season had been already out there without delay for followers who wish to do this marathon.
The first season passed off within the 12 months 2384, that’s, 364 years sooner or later. The second season, then again, takes place 30 years after the primary, being the 12 months 2414, about 400 years in the way forward for humanity.
With all of the episodes out there, it didn’t take lengthy for the cryptocurrency neighborhood to discover a curious reality within the sequence. After 400 years of Altered Carbon, cryptocurrencies would nonetheless be in use by humanity.
Bitcoin gained prominence amongst merchandise out there on the market from a felony. By the time the sequence confirmed the cryptocurrencies, the felony’s daughter was stealing her father’s belongings.
According to Emilio Man, administrator of the Decred Brasil neighborhood, cryptocurrencies have proved related within the sequence, even after 400 years. Decred was one of many cryptocurrencies that gained prominence within the plot.
The costs of things on the market within the felony market had two values, one in Bitcoin and the opposite within the value of an altcoin. Emilio recognized the Bitcoin (BTC), Decred (DCR), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC) cryptocurrencies.
One of the scenes caught the eye of the neighborhood, which nonetheless had time to verify the worth of the merchandise. One case, for instance, gave an merchandise value of 0.879 Bitcoins, whereas it was value 3.23 on Ethereum. However, within the present Bitcoin quote, 0.879 BTCs equals 33.86 ETHs, which means Ethereum has appreciated sooner or later introduced by the sequence.
Is this a ‘prophetic signal’ blessed by the God of TVs, just like how The Simpsons predicted numerous major world events in the past? Only time will tell, perhaps in the next decade or so. Or Tomorrow.
