There’s a new project on Kickstarter that intends to produce a television program about cryptocurrency. The program will be entitled The Bitcoin Phenomenon and will be part of the upcoming launch of the new SQ1.tv – pronounced “square one” -, set to be presented in the Fall.

The fundraising campaign wants to gather $25,000 until September 30 to raise awareness about Bitcoin through a special television show. “As a phenomenon, Bitcoin is completely fascinating and defies easy explanation. Our production looks to answer why people are so enamored with Bitcoin? And why is it appealing to so many different types of people? Everyone from cryptographers, hackers, Libertarians, legal marijuana growers, drug dealers, gambling operators, anti-war activists, to venture capitalists and entrepreneurs seem to have a vested interest in Bitcoin”, it’s possible to read on the official page of the campaign.

To get answers to these and other questions, the producers are interviewing “top thinkers and enthusiasts behind the Bitcoin movement” like Gavin Andresen, Erik Voorhees, Jeremy Liew or Peter Vessenes. “In addition, we plan to talk to economists, Libertarians, more VCs, more entrepreneurs”, the team behind the project adds.

Backers will have access to different rewards, from the basic online access to one-month launch sponsorship of SQ1.tv. The campaign has raised $1,800 so far.
