Sydney has a thriving and passionate bitcoin scene – and we’ve done our best to capture some of the highlights.
I met with Chris for a few days in Sydney to catch up on everything that has happened so far – refocus on the project and (of course) pick up on more interviews within the Sydney crypto scene. We had to interview Gary from the OldFitzroy to find out what his journey had been like. His pub was the first in Australia to adopt bitcoin and his attitude to business makes it easy to see why he’s held his turf for 15 years.
While we were there we also spoke with cafe owners, cocktail bar proprietors and blockchain visionaries.
It’s great fun meeting people in businesses that accept bitcoin, hearing their stories, eating a lot and being made to feel totally welcomed in a another city. There have been some fantastic foods here too. Who would ever think that watermelon cake could taste so goooood?!
We’re almost done on the interview filming (certainly according to Chris) and will move into the edit room for a couple of months after this to put things together.
