Future of Money Film

October 2017

The “Future of Money” is a superb short film put together by Erik German. It is a fantastic piece of work: I’ve show it to a number of people who say it’s done more to help them to understand digital money than any technical explanations. It draws on one of my favourite “back to the future” themes, using the famous stone money of Yap to explain Bitcoin.

The core idea is discussed in the film is that money is a form of memory. The memory of communities. It used to be dumb as rocks, but we are moving into an era of smart money.
