Fifth season of financial drama series “Billions” airs its first episode with a Bitcoin mining bust.

The new season, based on the life of the former New York District attorney Preet Bharara, opens on May 3 on Showtime with a storyline revolving around a group of cryptocurrency miners operating an illegal Bitcoin (BTC) farm.

The show’s previous seasons talked about the world of the stock markets and legal disputes with hedge fund managers on Wall Street.
