EYES IN Magazine Editor-in-Chief Vivian Van Dijk was happy to meet brothers Daniel and Nicholas Mross, whose 'The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin' documentary premiered in Manhattan this week and whose interview with Vivian will be featured in EYES IN Magazine. Vivian says, "Watching their documentary gave insight into the mystery of Bitcoin. This documentary shows you that Bitcoin is the start of big things for the future, more than just a currency.
"One of the most-fascinating facets of Bitcoin is not only that its creator, who goes by the pseudonym 'Satoshi Nakamoto', is in hiding or may even be dead by now, but that there will be so many other innovative companies created based on the decentralization concept of Bitcoin in the future. The fact that the founder has 1 million Bitcoins by now that are not moved and have a value of about US $500 million adds to the mystery.
"I was intrigued to listen to Nicholas and Daniel, because they show an innovative attitude about film and open source developments. This vision could make them the new creators of such innovative ventures developed by considering current centralized systems which could benefit from being decentralized with an 'a la Bitcoin' concept. I can't wait to hear about their upcoming Bitcoin ventures and new films coming out."
