We’ve all witnessed how the power of the cryptoverse has seeped into the pop culture consciousness, we’ve even seen the essence of the blockverse being translated onto the big screen, but the upcoming Crypto movie has once and for all shut down the naysayers and crypto critics who call the world of decentralized possibilities a fad.
Why, you ask?
Well, for starters it has an absolutely star studded cast with the likes of Kurt Russell, yes Kurt FREAKIN Russell, Luke Hemsworth, Alexis Bledel and Beau Knapp among other. It’s being produced by three major production houses; Dynasty Pictures, Yale Productions and BondIt Media Capital and is featured on global content platform Lionsgate.
The official movie trailer is an action packed treat filled with drama and suspense and was released by Rapid Trailers yesterday and has since then already been viewed an impressive 241,400 times. The movie basically follows the story of a troubled agent tasked with the mission of investigating a murky case that ends up involving drugs, the Russian mafia and of course, cryptocurrencies!
The movie has been directed and produced by John Stalberg Jr. and is of the detective/thriller genre. The trailer shows us a scene where the protagonist views a crypto wallet with approximately 10 million dollars worth of cryptocurrencies and during the investigation, our unsuspecting sleuth faces, black market art dealers, crypto enthusiasts and some real corrupt accountants.
The movie is set to be launched on the 12th of April in America and according to the trailer, it will be available on select on- demand platforms. And we simply cannot wait for the cryptoverse to get it’s due recognition for the masses. We’re especially excited to see how this star studded movie with a fairly promising plot hopefully intrigues and excites more people to give cryptocurrencies a chance.
Excitement was already at an all time high mid of last year when The Hollywood Reporter initially reported that a movie on cryptocurrencies was being launched and that too with such an acclaimed ensemble.
We're so proud to announce our latest project, CRYPTO, starring Beau Knapp, Alexis Bledel, Luke Hemsworth, and Kurt Russell, will be coming your way to… https://t.co/jGrH0LVjgC

In the report, one of the producers, Jordan Yale Levine spoke about the world of cryptos being explored like never before in the upcoming film, “Cryptocurrency has captured the attention and imagination of consumers and entrepreneurs all over the world but has never been explored in film in such a nuanced and exciting way.”
We’re excited to see if the film is really as good as advertised, but is there more to it?
However, there are those who are of the opinion that the premise of CRYPTO might do more harm than good via the unnecessary spread of FUD. Especially among audiences who are not yet fully aware of the possibilities and implications of the underlying technology.
