The Falcon and the Winter Soldier , a new Marvel Cinematic Universe show on the Disney+ streaming platform, incorporated a Bitcoin (BTC) bounty into its newest episode.
In episode three, “Power Broker,” one of the characters receives a text message which reads: “Selby dead.₿1K BOUNTY for her killers.” The reference, which drops around the narrative’s half way mark, is timely given Bitcoin’s ongoing bull market.At time of publication, 1,000 BTC equals approximately $58.8 million USD.The reference occurs around 24 minutes into episode 3 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Reddit user Okitraz1986 spotted the Bitcoin reference, and posted their findings (as well as a screenshot) on Reddit’s r/Bitcoin forum on Friday, saying:

Unfortunately, the story still shows Bitcoin being used in an underworld-esque manner, instead of as an asset for public investment — which would arguably be a more apt use case, if not quite so thematic.Over the years, Bitcoin has found it difficult to shake its reputed connections to nefarious activity, despite increasing legitimacy as a store of value similar to gold.
