Did The Simpsons predict Dogecoin?

Fans of The Simpsons fans have taken to social media to point out that the animated sitcom predicted Dogecoin in an episode that aired last year. 

One person said: “No matter what y’all say #dogecoin was in The Simpsons, so #dogetothemoon.” 

Another posted: “Whoa wait, there was a Dogecoin reference on The Simpsons?!”

One third added: “The Simpsons does it again. They accurately predicted the mass adoptions of cryptocurrency and had dogecoin as one of the cryptos on the list.”

Which episode did The Simpsons predict Dogecoin?

The Simpsons made a reference to cryptocurrencies in episode 13 of season 31. Titled ‘Frinkcoin,’ the episode is about Professor Frink who wants to prove cryptocurrency has ‘real value’.
