In the new episode of the animated series "The Simpsons" on April 11, the authors of the picture predicted an endless rise in the price of bitcoin. This was noticed by Reddit users. The episode tells about speculation in the financial markets. On one of the frames, a creeping line with quotes appears, in which there is an infinity sign opposite bitcoin.

Also in the running line of the new cartoon series are stock quotes for GameStop video game stores (GME). The company's share price rises by $ 1 trillion and then immediately falls by $ 2 trillion. So the authors of the animated series recalled the "pump" of GameStop shares, which was caused by the movement of WallStreetBets on Reddit.

As a protest, investors from Reddit began buying shares of the company, which led to their rise in price by 1941% in just a few weeks (from $ 17 to $ 347). Gamestop shares traded at $ 141 on April 13.
The cost of bitcoin on April 13 updated its historical maximum at around $ 63.1 thousand.As of 12:30 Moscow time, the cost of the main cryptocurrency, according to CoinGecko, is $ 62.4 thousand.
