The blockchain phenomenon has so many benefits that it can bring to modern society, but the journey has been a slow crawl. There have been setbacks, especially with regulatory attacks and salty comments from very public figures, but there have also been very positive signs of progress. Every once in a while, there are big, clear signals that the crypto revolution is inching its way toward the eventual goal of mass adoption. One of those moments happened last night, on HBO’s Silicon Valley – which premiered last night with a special nod to Coinbase.
The Coinbase Logo may have been hard to catch on Silicon Valley
First, let me say thank you to this Reddit user and the Twitter user below for pointing the HBO update out to us:

You see, I haven’t watched this show since the first season – it didn’t really hook me. But I do use Coinbase extremely regularly, so I’m guessing that if I watched last night’s episode I may have caught it.
But I’m sure the millions of viewers around the world caught it, particularly the crypto coin holders out there.
What does this mean for Coinbase?
It doesn’t mean that much – just a sign that a show who keeps up with popular tech trends is taking (sort of delayed) notice of Coinbase, which remains one of the most widely-used cryptocurrency trading platforms around.
You see, Silicon Valley actually updates their intro sequence every season – and all the updates for each season are spelled out in detail in this Reddit post. This year, they added Uber and Lyft – as well as Amazon Prime drones and a completely-constructed Apple Park.
It’s pretty neat that Coinbase made the list that HBO thought would be important enough to update, and it shows that mass adoption is – very gradually – making its way down the road.
