Satoshi Nakamoto, the world’s most wanted terrorist, was kidnapped and tortured by the NSA.
Native crypto production
At least that’s the story for an independent British film called “Decrypted”. In an interview with Cointelegraph, the film’s producer, Phil Harris, said:
“We made 70 percent of this film before we had to quit because of the COVID 19 crisis. So we managed to get 70 percent in the can. So we’re editing. I think as a producer of cinema and cryptocurrency fans wanted it explore emerging crypto space within the industry. “

The film is not just a story about Satoshi Nakamoto. The film itself was also funded with cryptocurrencies. Harris added that the film’s first release will be via crypto-native video platforms. He assured that much research has been done to ensure that the elements associated with Bitcoin (BTC) appear authentic.
Satoshi’s love interest
The plot of the film has some twists. Without giving everything, for example, Satoshi’s lover is a transsexual, Sofia, who happens to be his accomplice.
The film’s screenwriter, Mick Sands, is a cryptocurrency enthusiast, according to Harris. The threat that the very existence of Bitcoin poses to the founding of the United States is a point of fascination for him:
“Mick, our writer, is a bit rebellious, has always been intrigued by the world of cryptocurrencies, and was about to write a film that involved him in some way, especially how American security services view him as a major threat to his dominance the world economy and how they are desperately trying to dismantle or regulate it. “
The crypto revolution in the film industry
Harris believes the film industry is going through a revolution itself. He claims that young independent filmmakers have few distribution options due to the dominance of fewer global streaming platforms:
“We wanted this film to be part of the crypto revolution in the film industry, so we’ll be releasing it on some video-on-demand platforms. I’m not sure you know one, LiveTree is one, so you did Breaker, you have movieschain, cinezen, cinema well. “
The filmmaker’s ultimate goal is to eventually sell the rights to the film to a larger platform like Netflix or Amazon Prime. Harris expects the film to be released in late 2020.
