Why documentaries about Bitcoin?


Each year around $500 million is send back to Uganda from around the world as remittances.

Our newest film takes place in Kampala Uganda where RonaldĀ  has adopted Bitcoin as a means to receive support for his studies from his sister who lives and works in the USA. By using Bitcoin instead of conventional channels such as Western Union and Moneygram, Ronald and his sister not only avoid high transaction fees, but they can also transfer the money faster.

In Uganda and in many other places people do not have bank accounts or IDs which makes it difficult to use the conventional channels to send and receive money. Bitcoin solves this problem as no registration, bank account or ID is required. Since the transaction fees with Bitcoin are tiny and because of the speed of transactions, Bitcoin has a huge potential as a vehicle for disrupting the global remittance markets and create better lives.

  • Bitcoin Short Docs

    There is much potential in Bitcoins and too few people know about it. We want to make several small documentaries and uncover some of the fantastic and life-changing stories that involves Bitcoin. Also we would like to ask the established institutions about Bitcoins and how they see the impact on on society.
  • Democratization of Money

    We find Bitcoins interesting because it can change the lives for millions of people. Our main focus is to spread the word about some of the great opportunities which Bitcoin offers. By using Bitcoins, millions of people can now trade with the whole planet, via the internet, with little risk of being prosecuted by authorities. Bitcoins is truly a democratization of money.
