HBO’s Silicon Valley, now in its 5th season, is well-known for actively parodying the latest trends in tech while expertly commenting on the culture of the industry. This trend will look to continue with next week’s episode titled, “Initial Coin Offering,” where now the main characters look for alternative means of funding in the form a token sale. And who else to advise them other than show favorite, Russ Hanneman.
Here’s a snippet from the upcoming episode’s promo:
Richard: You did 36 ICOs, did it work?
Russ: It’s not always about money. Sometime’s it’s about wisdom.
Gilfoyle: So you lost it all?
This season has already made a few references to the world of cryptocurrencies when in episode 5, Gilfoyle set up a jarringly loud price alert system to tell him when to remote-toggle his bitcoin mining rig. Episode 7 will undoubtedly bring new life and comedic direction for the critically acclaimed show.
