One man With one Bitcoin Travels the World
Rafael used up his single Bitcoin so that he could travel the world, with the token he was able to travel to 18 different countries this is from September 2017 to September 2018.
During this period, he was able to meet a few prominent people like Vitalik Buterin and John McAfee, plus several other less famous crypto shakers and movers in the market. He was also able to conduct a total of about 20 interviews during his travels.
The Cost of his Trips
He made sure that he only spent one bitcoin for the entire year he was traveling, and most of his nights were spent just couch surfing, and for the days he would make sure he has eaten the cheapest meal he could get from the discount groceries.
However, he was able to collect about 178 hours of footage that was able to show how the crypto will set people free; thus, he went ahead to ask the crypto community to ensure they pay it forward and try fund his movie plus its distribution.
To begin with, Rafael had purchased one Bitcoin for about $4,724, this is in August 2017, and watched the volatile token in dread as its value dropped to about $3,359 in September. But the market went ahead to witness the biggest Bitcoin rally in history were the Bitcoin value went to about $20,000. At this moment Rafael was so near to cash it all out, but he relented once he spoke to the veterans of the crypto market in Hong Kong.
As a result, this led him to a year of relative poverty, but he still feels it was a good thing as it was able to push him and be more interactive with other people, and through this, he was able to learn a lot.
He went Ahead and Created a Movie
He believes that it is very important to get his movie out because as we have seen, the Bitcoin has been under attack by the different wealthy establishments in the market.
In his video, he has a quote from Warren Buffet, where he goes on to say that the crypto market will finally come to a sad ending. This is not all as he has also got quotes from Munger where he says that Bitcoin is a worthless artificial gold, and it would be horrible if the current children would grow up and go ahead and purchase the coin.
Rafael goes ahead to assert that they are lying to the millions of people around the world, and he has created a footage that can prove all this. Some of the footage he has goes ahead to show how Cambodians have embraced Bitcoin and gone ahead to fund different housing development. How the hard working Indians are making use of the crypto market to get ahead, plus how crypto mining in China has been able to free citizens from the current government.
And this is not all as he goes on to show how the entrepreneurs based in Europe have been accepting the crypto-coin for almost any transaction.
He says that the crypto market has been setting people free, as a result, his movie needs to get published widely to ensure all this is shared with people. He is planning on debuting his film on the Amazon instant videos, which should be followed by a showing that will be in Hong Kong International Film Festival. But he won’t stop here as he aims for the film to also be at Tribeca, Berlin Film Festival plus Toronto International Film Festival. Something that people should look out for.
