About the movie

Some think the blockchain is mostly hype, others believe it will change the world as we know it. True is: The history of the blockchain has just begun, and its final outcome lies in the future. Economist and filmmaker Manuel Stagars portrays this exciting technology in twenty interviews with software developers, cryptologists, researchers, entrepreneurs, consultants, VCs, authors, politicians, and futurists from the United States, Canada, Switzerland, the UK, and Australia.

How can the blockchain benefit the economies of nations? Will it change society? What does this mean for each of us? The Blockchain and Us is no explainer video of the technology. It gives a view on the topic, makes it accessible and starts a conversation about its potential wider implications in a non-technical way. The film deliberately poses more questions than it answers.
