“What Is Bitcoin.” Was the Answer on Alex Trebek’s Final Jeopardy Episode, But No One Knew


More than two months after Alex Trebek’s death, fans of “Jeopardy” got the chance to bid goodbye. Friday’s episode of the quiz show was taped before the legendary game show host died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 80 in November of 2020.

The episode had a 90-second montage remembering Trebek through several decades, and at the end of the episode, before this tribute, Trebek said, “see you again next week.”

The last episode also had something for the cryptocurrency community.

One of the questions featured in the episode was “A Satoshi is the smallest unit in this currency system?”

Of course, the answer is our beloved Bitcoin, where 1 BTC equals 100 million Satoshis, a unit based on the pseudonymous creator of the world’s largest cryptocurrency, Satoshi Nakamoto.

Despite all the attention Bitcoin has got in 2020, no one knew the answer to the question. Someone did make a guess of it being Japanese, but nothing else.

“What is Bitcoin, Bitcoin,” Trebek answered.

The episode was actually shot in late October or early November when the price of Bitcoin was trading around $13,500, and since then, it has exploded to a high of nearly $42,000 — an uptrend of more than 200%.

This only goes on to show that we are still very early!
