“Banking on Bitcoin”, a new film which shows the history and future of bitcoin, is set to be released on January 6, 2017.

The film is produced by Gravitas Ventures, an independent cinema house founded in 2006. It will be launch in selected theatres come January.

There are very many ways of recording history for future generations. Books, audio records, papers, articles and, most profoundly, movies. Movies can help keep records of how things happened in a certain period. Banking on Bitcoin, a 2016 film set for launch in early 2017, is said to say it all on the history and also tries to predict the future of bitcoin.

What does this film show about bitcoin?

Filmmakers are psychologists in a way, in that they know how to fully immerse their audience into a film so as to best understand in the simplest possible way what they are trying to convey. spoke to Nolan Gallaghe, Founder and CEO at Gravitas Ventures, about what the Banking on Bitcoin film is about and in a statement he said:

“The film was carefully crafted to include the history of bitcoin, started from its invention in 2009. It’s inventor, only known Satoshi Nakamoto, and why he remains anonymous. How bitcoin evolved and started getting wider acceptance across the globe. The film also, using the trend of development of bitcoin, tries to predict the future of bitcoin. How it will be in the future”

How will the future of bitcoin be impacted by this film?

The impacts a video has on the community can be seen from lifestyles, ways people speak, dress and behave. spoke to Andy Bell, Producer and Founder, Movie Part Media, a film production company based in the UK, about how he thinks the Banking on Bitcoin video can influence the future of bitcoin. He said:

“A movie is like a book, one has to open a book and read before he can know the content of the book. This film is a good move in documenting the history of bitcoin but I don’t think it has any significant impact on what bitcoin will be tomorrow. Most people who will watch this film are already people who know bitcoin”

Will this be a commercially paid film or a free YouTube video every bitcoin enthusiast can download and watch?

Free videos reaches out to millions of people within a matter of hours via youtube, Coinidol spoke to AJ Feuerman, Director of Public Relations & Social Media at Gravitas Ventures,  about the cost aspect of the film, and she responded by saying:

“This is a financial undertaking, the company has invested a lot of money in producing this film and so in a real world situation we will charge a fee to get a copy of this film or watch it in a cinema” 

The trailer of the film is now available on youtube, and it can be pre-ordered on Itunes.
