A crypto and blockchain focussed series of documentaries, also known as docuseries, premiered on the Discovery Science channel on July 4. It placed a special emphasis on the rise of the Walt Disney-developed blockchain platform called Dragonchain.
With the advent and the rise in prominence of the digital streaming services like Amazon and Netflix, documentaries on crypto and blockchain are ensuring they ride the wave of popularity. Earlier in May, Amazon featured Bitcoin Africa – a documentary on Africa’s well known ‘Bitcoin lady,’ who, after facing severe hardships in life, became Africa’s digital face for the Bitcoin revolution.
Last year, Netflix also made known its plans to broadcast documentary series on altcoins built on the success of Bitcoin. It would also feature inspiring stories of the world’s leading crypto and blockchain voices today, such as Vitalik Buterin of Ethereum, Binance’s Yi He, and Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson, among many others.

The docuseries will continue through the summer and broadcast many episodes every week.
