FAQs

Is DIRTY COIN "anti-Bitcoin"?

No. On the contrary, DIRTY COIN explores the misunderstood aspects of Bitcoin mining, particularly the energy usage debate. Proof of work is essential for creating money that is secure and immutable - the film aims to educate viewers on why Bitcoin's energy consumption is a necessary and positive aspect of its design; leveraging wasted or "stranded" energy, and providing capital for new, clean energy projects in poor communities which could normally not afford it.

How can I support the project?

You can support the film and documentary project through our Geyser campaign, sponsoring an event, purchasing a license for a private screening, or buying our merch. You can also spread the word on social media platforms like Twitter, Nostr and LinkedIn!

How is DIRTY COIN related to STRANDED?

STRANDED is a short documentary that focuses on how Bitcoin mining leverages stranded energy sources, often cleaning up the environment using methods like methane mitigation. It served as a proof-of-concept for the longer, feature-length documentary film which became DIRTY COIN.
