The feature, produced by James Corden’s Fulwell 73 and directed by Jake Witzenfeld, tells the story of crypto financier Ryan Radloff, blockchain diplomat Perianne Boring, and controversial anarcho-capitalist Roger Ver over the course of one year on their separate journeys to decentralize and redefine money and power. It covers the rise of altcoins, the civil war within the crypto community, the proliferation of ICOs, the evolving conversation with governments and regulators, and the potential of blockchain technology beyond its application to currency. The film is set to be released on the Binge platform in March 2019.
