Popular US comedy The Simpsons has explained how blockchain and cryptos work in its most recent episode broadcast in the US.

In "Frinkcoin," the 13th episode of the 31st season, Professor Frink explains cryptos to Lisa Simpson with the help of "TV's most beloved scientist, Mr. Jim Parsons," who played Sheldon Cooper in the popular comedy The Big Bang Theory.

He then explains "the really cool subject of distributed consensus-based cryptocurrency."

Parsons says:

"For cryptocurrency to work, we need a record of every transaction that occurs. These are recorded in what’s called a distributed ledger. When you use the currency, the transaction is recorded in the ledger. And when one ledger book gets filled up, we add to a chain of previous books. That’s the blockchain."

He then sings:

"I'm a consensus of shared and synchronized digital data spread across multiple platforms from Shanghai to Grenada. Each day I'm closer to being the cash of the future. Not in your wallet, I'm in your computer."

At the end of the explanation, Parsons says "also, we know who Satoshi is, but we're not telling."
