CRYPTO is amystery-thriller and heart-warming drama; a film based on the true story of the creation of Bitcoin and the mysterious figure behind it.
In 2009, an enigmatic genius using the pseudonym,‘Satoshi Nakamoto,’ released Bitcoin, a revolutionary, peer-to-peer new digital transaction system, based on Blockchain technology. Satoshi’s breakthrough creation of the world’s first ‘cryptocurrency’ fundamentally changed the future of global commerce by rendering traditional power brokers obsolete —and then he just disappeared.
In CRYPTO, you’ll meet a teenage rebel, an endearing family man, and a genius cryptographer. They’re all the same man: Hal Finney – a visionary futurist and legendary cypherpunk, who embarks on a life-altering journey after befriending one of the most elusive mystery men of the 21st century.
The journey culminates in a utopian future where the disruptive consequences of Satoshi’s invention have been realized. There is also a shocking twist that will leave the audience stunned.
While Hal is the film’s main focus, CRYPTO will also introduce us to other Revolutionary Cypherpunks, including: Nick Szabo, Wei Dai, Tim May, Eric Hughes, John Gilmore, Phil Zimmermann, Jude “St Jude” Milhon, Romana “Cypherella” Machado and more! They are the crypto-anarchists who fought for our privacy and pursued the digital holy grail: cryptocurrencies that do not rely on governments or central banks. Their peaceful revolution sought freedom and abundance for all. They saw a future for cryptocurrency bigger than drugs, black markets and Lambos. Will their vision prevail or will cryptocurrencies fall victim to neophobia, propaganda, and political agendas?
