TRUST MACHINE is the first blockchain-funded, blockchain-distributed, and blockchain-focused documentary, from entertainment tech company SingularDTV and Futurism Studios. The feature documentary explores the evolution of cryptocurrency, blockchain and decentralization, including the technology’s role in addressing important real-world problems, such as world hunger and income inequality.
Hacktivist and Blockchain expert Lauri Love fights extradition in Trust Machine – His computer skills a threat to the U.S. government. Tech innovators strike a raw nerve as banks and network pundits rush to condemn volatile cryptocurrencies and their underlying blockchain technology. Why are banks terrified while UNICEF embraces it to help refugee children?
Award-winning filmmaker ALEX WINTER shows that proponents of Blockchain are already using the technology to change the world; fighting income inequality, the refugee crisis and world hunger.
NARRATED BY ROSARIO DAWSON
“Trust Machine has shown us how beautiful inventions can be twisted by entrenched powers. The film’s hope is that, if more people are paying attention this time around, blockchain might remain a tool for popular empowerment.” – Hollywood Reporter
“The film does a phenomenal job as setting up the optimal benefits that blockchain could lead to, but not without support and empowerment from activists for major corporations and governmental powers to accept the emerging technologies.” – The Knockturnal
