Bitcoin now has its very own version of “Adult Swim.” A cartoon called Bitcoin and Friends will soon be launching its second episode pending fundraising through a combination of donations and sponsorships. The cartoon features the voice of rap artist Petey Pablo who plays Jones, a car dealer turned ice cream truck driver/drug dealer.
Bitcoin the character is born into a dark world blown out by the 2008 financial crisis. Every 10 minutes or so, he spews out a bunch of children who go scurrying off-screen. Satoshi Nakamoto is featured in the first couple of minutes, a shadowy figure who tells him that he will discover his destiny eventually. In the first episode, Mitalik, Harold, Bitcoin, and Jones meet Pal Fifty, a character very reminiscent of Hal Finney. They also meet someone who seems an awful lot like Dorian Nakamoto in a memorable scene.
