Amazon Prime Promotion Features Bitcoin Cash
Kal Penn, Cristela Alonzo, Tone Bell star in a multi-part documentary on Amazon Prime, and it’s described as extending “the smart, stylized storytelling of Adam McKay’s The Big Short to a quirky and compelling exploration of the global economy. In each episode, host Kal Penn — with the help of some celebrity friends — answers a burning question like: How can I launder a bag of dirty cash? How scared should I be of a rubber apocalypse? And is it easier for dicks to get rich?”
In Season 1, Episode 7, James Howells of the UK is interviewed for the “Is Money Bullshit?” segment. Within the promotion, as Howells and Penn are chatting, at the 19 second mark, Bitcoin Cash Accepted Here is prominently displayed.
Howells is part of a 42 minute episode, which asks what “the age-old, existential question: What is money, really? Host Kal Penn navigates a modern return to the barter system, the political highs and lows of the gold standard and the ‘because I said so’ logic of fiat currency. Kal also untangles the complexities of cryptocurrency and learns how to survive an economic apocalypse without getting eaten,” the show notes.
Howells is best known as the man who wound up throwing away what amounted to millions of dollars worth bitcoin core (BTC) and bitcoin cash (BCH). A freak accident burned out his computer, and so he tossed it … only later to learn it might’ve been recoverable and that the value of his coins had skyrocketed. Similar stories have been repeated over the years, and include massive hunts through landfills in order to retrieve computers. Howells is also a big booster of BCH, claiming it better fulfils the purpose of bitcoin over that of BTC.
