There was no way Billions was going to go off the air without doing it. Considering the show’s penchant for displaying the various scams and distortions of the financial elite, it was only a matter of time before it introduced a storyline involving NFTs.
This week’s episode begins with Karl (Allan Havey) at a Gamblers Anonymous meeting. He’s not there because of any addiction, but rather to gather information. He listens in as one attendee details how they didn’t realize their investment in NFTs was essentially gambling, and that they lost a ton of money to some billionaire’s son named Kai Huang Liu. Like so many rich kids, Liu managed to avoid the consequences of his actions, hiding behind the political and financial pull of his father.
