Since it’s Saturday morning and, once upon a time Saturday mornings were for cartoons, I figured this would be the ideal time to post this cartoon about the emergence of Bitcoin in the midst of the 2008 financial crisis.

Bitcoin awakens to a chaotic world following the 2008 financial crisis. With only a few words to his young child, Satoshi disappears, leaving Bitcoin with more questions than answers. Fortunately, a benevolent ice cream truck owner (Jones) takes Bitcoin under his wing in a search to find his father.

The cartoon is embedded below, but be warned, it’s not for kids and there’s a lot of foul language.

You have been warned.

Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that underlies cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.

It provides a way to record and transfer data that is transparent, safe, auditable, and resistant to outages.

The blockchain has the ability to make the organizations that use it transparent, democratic, decentralized, efficient, and secure. It’s a technology that holds a lot of promise for the future, and it is already disrupting many industries.
