With the current rise of cryptocurrency, people are finding new ways to exploit the financial system and the global economy. After discovering evidence of fraud, a young US government agent named Martin is tasked with following a long trail of corruption and theft. During his investigation, he finds that the people involved are more powerful than he could have ever imagined, and have become skilled in the use of cryptocurrency.
This is the plot of the latest “crypto on film” development. The much-awaited film, Crypto, starring Kurt Russell, has finally arrived; the trailer is out, and the big screen depiction of the wonderful ups and downs of a nascent industry taking the financial world by storm is due for release on 12 April.
Of course, all should be taken with just a grain of salt, and it’s all simply good fun. How much the script bears up in terms of verisimilitude to actual cryptocurrency world is left for others to comment. How likely criminals are to leave files clearly marked “Kickbacks” is also left for compliance officers to comment on.
An anti-money laundering expert’s trip to small-town America and a subsequent run-in with the Russian mob is the basic meat and bones on which the plot is hung upon with Kurt Russell in the central role.
The movie world still awaits another crypto project starring Michael Keaton a film about the life of controversial crypto advocate John McAfee, the man who made millions creating antivirus software. It appears that Johnny Depp was the original choice, but was fired before the Birdman star was drafted in to play.
