Eminem's New Album "Kamikaze" here Bitcoin Gains Awareness Boost From Mention


Cryptocurrency and Bitcoin have taken added step toward mainstream recognition with a mention on U.S. rapper Eminem's new album "Kamikaze" — a sign that bitcoin is gradually penetrating to various levels of society also out of the financial, fintech bubble it's survived for the last decade.

The ninth track in the album, "Not Alike" — featuring Royce Da 5'9' — Royce declares: "Remember everybody used to bite Nickel, now everybody doing bitcoin."

Public awareness has been a significant driver of the bitcoin price, which current year ballooned to almost $20,000 from around $1,000 per coin at the start of the year. Bitcoin price has since dropped back, dragging most other significant cryptocurrencies with it, and is now trading at around $7,000.

Bull run Last year, meant a raft of bitcoin mentions in TV, film, and music as producers both applauded and attacked the digital currency — that made several overnight millionaires also brought on the ire of the approved financial industry.

The animated cartoon comedy "Family Guy," the show's the main character Peter Griffin recommends bitcoin as a solution to his family’s financial trouble.

"Dope," 2015 American comedy-drama movie, the chief character begins selling drugs online using bitcoin.

"The Big Bang Theory," Sitcom, the gang search for a lost laptop which contained bitcoin that Sheldon and his friends purchased seven years beforehand.

Eminem's album is significant however as it suggests not a get rich quick scheme nor a way to sell illicit goods online, but preferably something that "everybody [is] doing" — that it's as familiar as understanding you bite the metal coin to test its quality.
