Bitcoin Currency - Berlin premiere September 6 2012

Postby Charles » Wed Sep 05, 2012 10:25 pm

An animated short film that informs about the digital currency Bitcoin with typical German humour will be publicly presented in Berlin (Germany) on Thursday, September 6, at 7 PM Central European Time. The premiere's venue is the Kreuzberg-based bar Room 77 at Graefestrade 77 - the only place in Germany (so far) where you can pay for your snacks and drinks in Bitcoin. Being part of the monthly meeting of the Berlin Bitcoin Community, the film's producers will present their work and answer questions.

"As a German company working for a global market, we have decided to play with our 'German-ness' and the stereotypes that come with it", says Oliver Flaskamper from Bitcoin.de, the Bitcoin market place, which has commissioned the film. "The main characters are a rather moony scientist and his robot speak English with a heavy German accent and treat things with German accuracy."

"We have produced the film with animators from India whom we met through our international film festival", explains Aaron Koenig, MD of Bitfilm.com and the film's director. "Through this connection we can offer high quality for a relatively modest budget. Of course we paid our Indian animators in Bitcoin: the wire transfer only took a few seconds and there were no fees involved."

Bitcoin is a digital, decentralised, peer-to-peer-based currency that works without a central bank and knows no inflation. Security is guaranteed by advanced cryptographic methods. Bitcoin is also a new global payment system, which enables its users to pay globally, for free and anonymously over the Internet, rendering banks, credit card companies and other middlemen obsolete.
