This is a short film from the German DW documentaries looking at blockchain technology in the Philippines, and what effect its introduction is starting to have on the lives of the people there.
One of the important arguments the film makes is that in poor countries like the Philippines many people find themselves either outside the banking system altogether or facing extremely high fees when using the system.
The film follows some people, foreign and Filipino, involved in the cryptocurrency space and how their work is helping people with such things as inclusion, remittances, identity and cutting out middle men.
