New series from Amazon Prime Video, Upload, shows Libra and Bitcoin as a form of payment.
Upload is a new series launched a few weeks ago – precisely on May 1st – by Amazon Prime Video, Netflix’s biggest competitor. At any given time, Upload mentions Libra and Bitcoin as payment methods.
In fact, in a scene from the first season, a character asks for 600 pounds from Facebook as payment, while there is also the cryptocurrency Bitcoin written in the background.
In short, this is yet another indication that cryptocurrencies are increasingly taking center stage in the world of Hollywood, as recently the film “Crypto”, with the famous actor Kurt Russell, has also been released.
The Upload Storyline
Upload is a sitcom that takes place in the near future, in which people who are close to death can be “uploaded” to a virtual life of their choice.
The plot begins in 2033 and features Nora (Andy Allo), a romantic young woman born in Brooklyn, who works in customer service in a luxurious virtual reality environment. When Nathan (Robbie Amell), a handsome young man is injured, his girlfriend transfers him to Nora’s virtual reality world.
The series is a pleasant surprise that was provided by Amazon Prime Video. With a current and well elaborated plot, well-developed and charismatic characters and a plot that has held you from the start. Light and fun is the type of series that you hook up and devour the initial 10 episodes very easily. A futuristic comedy that treats everyday themes with a lot of sarcasm, good humor and subtlety.
Other TV series that mentioned cryptocurrencies
This is not the only TV series that features cryptocurrencies as an established payment method in the future: for example, on Netflix, some time ago, the Altered Carbon series, in a second season episode, showed commodity prices in BTC, LTC and ETH.
Silicon Valley, another sitcom, cites cryptocurrencies several times, including the invention of Pied PiperCoin.
Another Netflix series, “How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast),” which, this time in a derogatory sense, cites bitcoin as the ideal payment method for selling drugs online on the Dark Web.
