A film on Ethereum soon in the cinema

Camila Russo announced that his book The Infinite Machinetelling the story of the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain and its founder, Vitalik Buterinwill be adapted into a film:

The writing of the film will be entrusted to Shyam Madiraju and the company Scott Free Productions has joined the production.

This was founded in 1995 by Ridley Scottthe director to whom we owe Alien and Gladiator. More recently, we can also cite Alone on Mars with Matt Damon or The House of Gucci with Lady Gaga.

Ridley Scott’s production company includes 100 Emmy nominations for 22 wins.

This is not the first time that a film project has dealt with cryptocurrency as a subject. For example, an independent documentary on Ethereum is also in production. Nevertheless, this announcement is probably the most ambitious to date and the one capable of reach the most audience.

About the Author : Vincent Mayor


I timidly discovered the world of blockchain at the end of 2018 during my quest for financial freedom. Initially invested moderately, it was only two years later that I took the gamble of betting everything on the movement that was taking shape then. I then dedicate 2021 to training myself better to acquire more knowledge and seriousness. As I often like to say: I still have a billion things to learn. And what I do know, I want to share with you.
