The crazy a minute and a half explanation of crypto comes in when Jim Parson [The Big Bang Theory guy?] explains crypto to Liza.

In the explanation, Jim talks about the distributed ledger, moving forward with the topic of consensus mechanism of shared and synchronized digital data. Not just this, they even wrote a song; sung by the “ledger” which said, “Each day, I’m coming closer to being the cash of the future”. Predictable much?

Additionally, an explanation banner displayed during the episode even reads out,

“Cryptocurrency is a system that does not rely on a non-cryptocurrency central authority. but instead relies on a non-centralized distributed consensus of cryptocurrency ownership. Using the word “cryptocurrency” repeatedly when defining cryptocurrency makes it seem like we have a cryptocurrency novice’s understanding of cryptocurrency. Well, that is total pile of cryptocurrency. In this system, rules are defined for the creation of additional units of cryptocurrency. They can be generated by fiat like traditional currency or just thrown around randomly or all given to LeBron. But for some reason, these crypto guys are really into computers. So we have big buildings full of energy-gobbling air-conditioned computers solving useless math problems. But now we can’t have straws?! Also, we know who Satoshi is, but we’re not telling.”
