Top 5 Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Related Movies That You Must Watch in 2020

Bitcoin was the genie that came out of the lamp in 2008. However, within only the last 10 years, people have realized that blockchain is the next breakthrough innovation after the internet. Even though you might not know a lot about blockchain, the chances are that you hear this buzz word at least once or twice a day.

In the beginning, blockchain was simply considered a distributed ledger to store cryptocurrency’s transactions. However, nowadays it has found its disruptive uses in almost every walk of life — from banking to the health sector, and from governance to insurance. Even though Ethereum was the first blockchain to allow smart contract execution, the dream of blockchain mass adoption was still quite far away from becoming a reality; as ethereum was limited in terms of its ability to process transaction at a rate that allowed applications to scale. In was that time when Futurepia was developed by Sigmachain, to tackle the issues of Speed, Security, and Scalability.

2 — Trust Machine: The Story of Blockchain

Trust Machine is the first blockchain-funded, blockchain-distributed, and blockchain-focused documentary ever made.

Per IMDB, “this documentary explores the evolution of cryptocurrency, blockchain, and decentralization.”. The best thing about Trust Machine is that it talks about the technology’s role in addressing important real-world problems, such as world hunger and income inequality.

3 — The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin

5 — Banking on Bitcoin

This movie is like “The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin” but the cases covered here shed more light on the potential societal benefits of bitcoin. Moreover, a lot of successful cases, especially in the banking industry, are covered over a lengthier period of time allowing viewers to witness a more comprehensive view of bitcoin. Perhaps the movies most telling quote follows:

Early adopters make the roads that we all travel. The first guy through the door gets shot. But somebody’s gotta go through the door.”

Well, that was the list of our top 5 favorite movies about cryptocurrency and blockchain. Even though the crypto-market has seen many highs and lows, there is no harm in agreeing that the blockchain has literally changed our lives.

For example, check out this cafe in Seoul, South Korea where you can buy coffee and goodies using crypto-tokens called SNAC. Not only can you purchasing things like coffee using SNAC ,you can also buy cosmetics, beauty products, and more! SNAC is a disruptive social media platform that rewards users for creating and viewing content by equitably distributing its crypto-token, SNAC.

Per the motto, “Be Social, Earn Rewards”, SNAC is a social media platform built on blockchain technology where users are rewarded in points called SNAC tokens for the quality content they create and view. SNAC deviates from the traditional business models where content-based revenue is targeted to a few individuals.
