“TRUST MACHINE: The story of Blockchain” to screen at NCFA conference

The National Crowdfunding & Fintech Association (NCFA) will kick off FFCON19 – its annual fintech, blockchain, and AI conference taking place in Toronto April 3-4, with the Toronto screening premiere of Alex Winter’s deep-dive blockchain documentary, “TRUST MACHINE: The Story of Blockchain”.

TRUST MACHINE, written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Alex Winter (DeepWeb, Downloaded) and narrated by Rosario Dawson, explores the evolution of blockchain, cryptocurrency and decentralization and examines the implications from ethical, political and social perspectives. Mr. Winter follows tech innovators striking a raw nerve, as banks and network pundits rush to condemn volatile cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. He reveals how proponents of blockchain are already using the technology to build networks that address real world problems such as fighting income inequality, the refugee crisis, and world hunger.

Now in its 5th year, FFCON19 will bring together prominent industry experts, entrepreneurs, professionals, regulatory bodies and ecosystem stakeholders in fintech, blockchain, digital assets, AI, capital markets innovation, and alternative finance to discuss Canadian fintech and its ability to innovate and globally compete, the latest industry developments, emerging regulation, trends and thought leadership in a fearless framework and forum.

The two-day event, taking place April 3-4 in Toronto, will feature inspiring keynote addresses and panel discussions with industry leaders, pitching competitions, awards, and prime networking opportunities.

FFCON19 will screen TRUST MACHINE on Wednesday, Apr. 3 at 1:10 p.m. followed by an exclusive fireside chat with John Lyotier, CEO of RightMesh, who features in the documentary. J

“Alex Winter’s documentary is dramatic, poignant and thought-provoking for all audiences from those new to blockchain to those who work deep in the industry,” Mr. Lyotier said. “FFCON is an ideal event for the Toronto premiere screening as there is no doubt that blockchain is fundamentally changing the future of finance.”
