The Simpsons jokes about “Useless, Energy-Gobbling” Crypto

Proof of Work blasted as Useless

The official Bitcoin Twitter channel promoted a video clip from the Simpsons which they claim is bullish about Bitcoin.

Major crypto “news” sites promoting the story as being uber bullish.

What these sources are failing to disclose is that The Simpsons never mentioned Bitcoin but talked about Consensus based Distributed Ledger Technology (which is how Ripple and XRPL developers describe XRP) but when referring to Proof of Work they described it as energy-gobbling, solving useless math problems and took a dig about the environmental impact saying “But now we can’t have straws”.

Major crypto “news” site Coin Telegraph meanwhile were caught red handed when they ran the story but chose to purposefully emit the last few sentences, completely twisting the bias of the article against what the writers of The Simpsons had intended. Not directly lying but as good as the very next best thing.

Here is the quote they used:

“Using the word “cryptocurrency” repeatedly while defining cryptocurrency makes it seem like we have a novice’s understanding of cryptocurrency. Well that is a total pile of cryptocurrency. In this system, rules are defined for the creation of additional units of cryptocurrency. They can be generated by fiat like traditional currency or just thrown around randomly or all given to LeBron.”
