Coinbase documentary “COIN” to debut Oct. 7

Coinbase worked closely with Emmy-winning filmmaker Greg Kohs to share the insider story behind building the first publicly traded cryptocurrency exchange.

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong shared the COIN trailer on Oct. 4 adding that the documentary was created to show the good, bad and ugly sides of building a tech startup.

Armstrong who first read the Bitcoin whitepaper in 2010, reflected on the idea of making “Bitcoin easy to use”.  On June 20, 2012, he took the leap to build a better financial system by launching Coinbase.

Seven years later, on April 14, 2021, Coinbase became the first cryptocurrency exchange to go public on Nasdaq, after reaching a $100 billion valuation.

According to Armstrong, the COIN documentary will share his journey and demystify what it takes to build a tech startup. It will also feature hardworking people working to build a more fair, free, and global financial system.

By sharing his story, Armstrong intends to inspire more people to leverage the power of technology to build companies that can solve real problems in the world.

The COIN documentary also featured industry leaders including  Vitalik Buterin and Michael Saylor. 

You can view the COIN Trailer via YouTube, in anticipation of the full release on Oct. 7 across Apple, Amazon Prime, and Vimeo on demand.
