The New Internet?

That is the question first posted in this excellent written overview of “Blockchain.”

For the first time in history, digital currency, the global transactions of monetary exchange, can be sent without without banks, governments or any other intermediaries.

How far this can go, and what business applications can end up transforming the worldwide monetary system, is reviewed in the above 30-minute documentary.

Economist and filmmaker Manuel Stagars portrays this exciting technology in interviews with software developers, cryptologists, researchers, entrepreneurs, consultants, VCs, authors, politicians, and futurists from the United States, Canada, Switzerland, the UK, and Australia.

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.
