Crypto Documentary Maker (Trust Machine and Deep Web) Alex Winter Talks Bitcoin on Bill & Ted Day


Education regarding blockchain is a very important step towards mainstream adoption and acceptance and one of the ways by which this takes place is through various documentaries and one person who has been very prominent in that space is Alex Winter, who is known for his various documentaries such as Deep Web: the untold story of Bitcoin and the Silk Road and his most recent offering Trust machine: the story of blockchain.

While he is most known to the crypto community for his different documentary issues, he is also known in the mainstream movie world as an actor in the famous Bill and Ted movie franchise which has become a cult classic and is beloved around the world. While fans of the series are highly anticipating the third installment of the franchise that he tweeted about recently that will see co-star Keeanu Reeves reprise his role as Ted, Winter recently gave an interview to Coin Spice about his most recent documentary, Trust machine, which delves into how blockchain technology can be misused but also has a lot of potentials. In the interview, he goes into his history with open-source culture and his eventual foray into the world of Bitcoin.

Talking The Talk

At the beginning of the interview, Winter makes a comparison between blockchain and Napster, a popular online platform in the early 2000s and states that the narrative surrounding such technology and platforms has always been wrong and that the idea of blockchain being a fix all solution that will make everyone rich is ludicrous.

He also stated that while there is potential behind blockchain, he is not as involved in the crypto wars that are ongoing between various tokens. While he is not a hard-and-fast critic of blockchain or cryptocurrency, he does look forward to a future in which no one knows what blockchain is and it is simply a part of their daily lives in the same vein as JavaScript and HTML.

When asked if he was a blockchain skeptic, Winter pointed out that his documentary initially was to focus on bitcoin but as he continued to gather interviews and more information, he came to realize that a lot of the general public will be lost as to the subject matter and as such, the documentary evolved into a broader discussion with surrounded blockchain itself and that he feels that some of the information being put out is ahead-of-its-time.

This, he says, as evidenced by the fact that many people wanting to go into blockchain when money first became prominent within the field and then left after the first bear markets took place.

When asked about how he got into the internet, he stated that his interest began in the 80s when the internet was first bringing up and small communities were formed before the web era and that be began telling his stories in the age of Napster.

He ended the interview by touching on how he came into a partnership with Futurism and Singular stating that he had met a number of people from both firms at his New York screening of the Deep Web and that he felt that the story was ready to be told at that point in time while the audience was still ready and available.
