“People like myself are still learning, but the curiosity is there.”
It is a view shared by the producers – Eric Sords, Steve Wong, George Shamieh and Jason King – who have revealed their vision to “bring the cryptocurrency movement into mainstream consciousness, educate, and build trust in the marketplace for the technology and its continued growth”.
Cryptocurrency – particularly bitcoin – has suffered from a lack of enthusiasm in the last two months after plunging from a regular high of $6,500 during much of 2018 before flopping to its current value hovering above $3,400.
It seems a curious topic to pin a big filming budget to, but the producers say they’re confident the time is right to bring cryptocurrency into the mainstream.
And that confidence is mirrored by Stefan Kyriazis, Online Arts Editor for Express.co.uk.
He said: “Cryptocurrency is the hot new topic but nobody seems to know what it is really all about.
“We are all fascinated by it, tempted by the promise of getting rich quick but afraid of something that doesn’t seem real.
“We all have a friend who is sure it’s about to make them obscenely wealthy.
“It’s a ripe subject for a new drama or movie, especially as we face a terrifying 2019 where nothing seems certain or safe anymore.
“Finance swindles, Wall Street scandals and small-scale schemes and scams have all been done to death, but rarely actually relate to our real lives.
“It’s time for a rollicking cryptodrama that’s a little closer to home.”
