‘Billions’ Season 5 Opens With Bitcoin Mining Bust
The first episode of the fifth season of Billions opened up with a surprise: a scene about Bitcoin.

The miner answered with another question: “What’s the Dollar backed by since we went off the gold standard?” (Source)
If this isn’t a sign of adoption, then I don’t know what is.
