The Simpsons Cryptocurrency Episode - "Frinkcoin"

Cryptocurrencies are getting more popular than ever. Recently Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin symbols have been spotted in The Simpsons latest episode titled "Frinkcoin".  Frinkcoin is the 675Th episode of American animated sitcom which aired on FOX Channel February 23rd 2020. The plot of the comedy evolved around the development, adoption and the demise of Frinkcoin cryptocurrency. The show brought the subject matter to a wide audience and is quite educative about blockchain. In a very funny way of course.

Many crypto advocates highlighted the episode on Twitter in celebration. Despite Litecoin being hilariously featured in an anti-blockchain formula; Charlie Lee the creator of Litecoin, was one of the first to tweet his excitement about the mention. 




Also on Twitter, @TheSimpsons account is having fun with the audience and the crypto community by running an asset pool. "Which one would you invest in?" With FrinkCoin taking the lead agains gold, renmin…

HighLights of the Crypto Summit Invest LA 2019 - Speakers and Litecoin


It is a wrap. Yesterday April 10th 2019 was the last day to enjoy the largest Crypto conference in the West Coast, the Crypto Summit Invest. Although the event is quite large it  certainly provided a very welcoming, organized, resourceful and quite cozy experience for attendees, speakers and organizers. The event is such a great opportunity for the crypto community to get together, exchange ideas and enable technological advancement. 

One of the highlights of the event and the key note speaker was Charlie Lee, also known as Satoshi Lite, the creator of Litecoin. Moderated by Anthony Pompliano, Managing partner at Morgan Creek Capital and Podcast Host, the discussion focused on the future and the prospects of Litecoin, the growth of lightning network and implementation of confidential transactions. The crowd was on high spirits and the house was full. As I spoke to few attendees most of them are simply admired by the level of growth in mass adoption that Litecoin has experienced even during the bear market. Possibly the reason for the recent peak in prices.

Presentations, speeches and discussions were rolling out for two consecutive days in the main stage and at the expo stage at the LA Convention Center. Lots of innovation, lots of great minds thinking of creative ways to implement blockchain technology. I also noticed many discussions focusing on regulation and regulation compliance as well as softwares and applications designed for that matter. For a list of names of speakers that attended the event you can access this Speaker page at Crypto Summit Invest web site. From there you will soon be able to find the material in recordings as well. 

One discussion that I really enjoyed was the Pomp's Off The Chain Podcast with special guest Ami Ben-David of SPiCE VC and Ownera recorded during the convention. Truly fantastic to see the two crypto masterminds holding opposite point of views debating about , the future of asset tokenization, privacy, anonymity,  scaling, security and other matters that are so important to the growth and public acceptance of this technology



Another great chat I watched was Andrew Yang, @Ecurrencyhodler, COO of Blockfuse and Justin Camarena, software engineer at Bitrefill, highlighting some of the advancements of the Lightning network and its implementation. They showed real case examples of that extra layer of privacy provided by the Lightening Network channels. Few concepts that were hard for me to understand personally were certainly clarified and I do recommend listening these speakers on YouTube or Podcast in case you eager to learn.

In addition to the great speakers attending this event the Expo Hall was also a busy local with a variety of booths. Most of my time during the event was spent where my heart is, the Litecoin Foundation booth. But I did circle around and found some interesting companies as I walked along. From exchanges such a Monarch, Oodlebit and tax oriented softwares all the way to crypto art.

My main goal in this event was simply to attend and support Litecoin. It was truly a pleasure to do the job and I would volunteer it to do it all over again. Our goal at the booth was to provide educational material about the Litecoin and increase brand awareness, and showcase the fresh and new redesigned Logo. We also sold Litecoin Branded T-shirts and Hats to raise money for the Foundation and If you did not get a chance to grab one during the event you will find them at the Litecoin Foundation shop
