Quoting a snippet from ) :

“In an arena dominated by technical jargon and complex concepts, the series stands out by weaving the history and principles of Bitcoin into engaging narratives.

** A Glimpse:

Some of The Reel Gets Unveiled.

As you will see in the trailer below, there’s no need for a film/movie to be all about bitcoin to become a killer content for Bitcoiners.

BONUS 🎁 Personal insights of the trailer’s creator and the very genius behind this movie:

“What began as a pipe dream and a wild vision for a gang of relentless young filmmakers during lockdown has now manifested through sheer heart, unwavering determination, and an awe-inspiring team of creatives.”

Naeem Mahmood ( , passionate creator, or as he calls himself ‘a visionary’; award-winning, and audacious film director.

“Unapologetic and bold images, the delicate structure of the story and the subtle underlying messages conveyed, it wasn’t easy to combine them into a trailer intended for a wide audience! I knew I was in deep water, and I loved it!”

Yannis Stergioulis ( , film trailer editor and colorist, who last year decided to engage in this ambitious project.
