About the film “Ethereum: The Infinite Garden”
What if we could create a world in which every transaction decentralized? Where art buying, voting, fundraising, and even social media not controlled by a central company or middleman, but rather an open source community-driven network where the code runs without interference. In 2013, Vitalik Buterin, an 18-year-old bitcoin enthusiast and tech writer, proposed tools to make this future possible. Less than ten years later, thousands of developers have contributed to the creation of the Ethereum ecosystem: a technology that allows applications to be decentralized, including, but not limited to, money. For many, Ethereum creates internet value.
But as Ethereum grows in size and popularity, it faces growing pressure from front-line competitors, hype markets, and criticism for its scalability and power consumption. Led by a global research and development team, the drive to update the platform could respond to criticism and unleash the technology’s full potential … or it could disrupt the still nascent $ 300 billion network.
ETHEREUM: THE INFINITE GARDEN is a full-length documentary about innovative applications of the Ethereum blockchain in the real world, the community of enthusiasts and developers, and its creator, Vitalik Buterin, whose vision of the Internet can change the world.
“In this film, we view Ethereum as an ‘endless garden’. Instead of thinking of Ethereum as a machine controlled by a central brain, we see it as a decentralized ecosystem with soil, plants and insects to take care of for this garden to grow and flourish, ”the filmmakers said.
