The very first cryptocurrency funded play will be coming very soon to the Trafalgar studios sometime this year. Something to look out for. In 2014, Alex Oates made history when the crowd-funder was found by an anonymous donation that was in Bitcoins. From the funds he got for his show Silk Road, it allowed him to stage the fantastic show at the Edinburgh Fringe and the Vault Festival.
About Silk Road Bitcoin-Funded Play
The piece that Oates created was inspired by the interviews carried out with the real online vendors. The piece explores the various exciting encounters and also the dangers that exist in the unmarked dark web. The play also looks at the impact of this type of industry has to a boy who is just trying to find his way into the world.
The story is based on the character Bruce Blakemore, who was played by Josh Barrow, who is just a young Goodie techie who just finds himself plus his name being drawn into the underworld of the internet. And underworld that has gangsters and pirates.
Oates states that back in the year 2014, bitcoin was being considered by many as a novelty, so he couldn’t be more thrilled that his play which was made possible to run thanks to the anonymous crypt coin donation is actually back this summer to play at the Trafalgar Studios. It is very clear to him that Bitcoin is here to stay and he is greatly honored to have the very first play that was funded by the crypto-coin, and he is sure it will not be the last.
The show has been directed by Dominic Shaw and will be running at the Trafalgar Studios from 7 August-1 September, so go ahead and by your tickets.
