Popular American TV cartoon ‘The Simpsons’ recently aired an episode that gives a small nod (kick in the groin) to bitcoin. In the scene, the character Krusty the Clown says the following:

Now what’s interesting about this is that it raises a very important, yet simple question. Has bitcoin gone mainstream? Given the reference on The Simpsons (which for you international readers is a huge show in the U.S.), we’d say it has.
