4 x 60 minute documentary series for Channel News Asia
The current hype about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies as millions are made and lost makes for great headlines, but misses the far more interesting story about the technology that allows them to exist.
The series travels through a landscape where the virtual and the physical intertwine, where seemingly abstract concepts like bitcoin, cryptocurrency, blockchain have inspired millennials, libertarians, financiers and entrepreneurs to throw themselves into the technology and explore its potential for the future. Some see it as a revolution, others see the prospect of great profits, and many get lost in between – prey to scams, hacks, or naiveté. We travel across Latin America and Asia in search of the truth behind the hype.
