The documentary, Coin: A Founder’s Story, aims to pull back the curtain and show people what it’s really like to build a tech company from the ground up and encourage others who want to do the same.

The announcement stated that the documentary will depict the “good, the bad and the ugly” of building a tech startup from the ground up and becoming a public company.
Armstrong shared, “I agreed to make this documentary because I wanted to demystify what it takes to build a tech startup and encourage more people to start businesses. I also wanted to demystify cryptography.”
The CEO also said that he hopes to show that tech entrepreneurs are just people trying to create a product that people want, adding that “everyone who works with crypto believes they can create a fairer, free and global financial system.”
The CEO encouraged everyone to watch the film, including decision makers, as he believes it will help advance the cryptocurrency cause, as well as show the motivation of the many hard-working individuals driving the industry forward.
