The current hype about bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as millions are made and lost make for great headlines, but misses the far more interesting story about the technology that allows them to exist - blockchain. This series dives into the crypto-kingdom to understand the technology, and why we should all care about how it develops. Just as it’s difficult to do anything without the internet today, in 10 years we might very well be saying the same thing about blockchain. Some see it as a revolution, others see the prospect of great profits, and many get lost in between - prey to scams, hacks, or naiveté. We travel across Latin America and Asia in search of the truth behind the hype.
