MovieCoin Launches Revolutionary Blockchain-Based Entertainment Financing Fund and Platform Innovative System Will Democratize Hollywood Investment

Opportunities and Bring Unprecedented Transparency and Enhanced Payment Processes to Industry Financial Transactions

May 7, 2018 – Los Angeles, California, USA – MovieCoin (the “Company”) has launched a transformational entertainment industry financing fund that will offer qualified investors an unprecedented opportunity to invest in Hollywood films, television programs and other strategic assets using a blockchain-based financing platform and cryptographic tokens that will dramatically increase stakeholder transparency and significantly improve industry accounting and payment practices.

The Company is issuing a token (the “Fund token”) to raise capital that will be invested in movies, television programs and other entertainment industry assets. Each Fund token will represent an ownership interest in the projects financed by the Fund. The Company expects these tokens to afford investors infinite divisibility and enhanced liquidity when compared to existing industry investment vehicles. Fund tokens will only be sold to accredited investors under Regulation D and to non-U.S. persons under Regulation S of the United States Securities Exchange Act.

The MovieCoin financing platform will tokenize the films and television programs the Company plans to finance using BANKEX’s Proof-of-Asset Protocol, smart contracts and smart asset assembly. The platform will provide financiers and other institutions with an immutable, transparent ledger of all of the expenditures, receipts, entitlements and ownership of each project the Company finances.

In addition to the Fund token, the Company is also issuing a token called “Moviecoin” that will enable consumers to purchase movie tickets, buy or rent films or television programs on DVD and Blu-ray or through transactional video on demand (VOD) services and subscribe to programming offered by other VOD and pay television providers. Payments made in Moviecoin will be recorded on the blockchain and promptly distributed to each project’s lenders, investors, distributors, guilds and profit participants, bypassing the bottlenecks and middlemen that currently encumber Hollywood accounting systems. Together, the MovieCoin platform and Moviecoin token will provide all of a project’s financial participants with an end-to-end view of the financing, distribution and exploitation of that project, from acquisition through every window in which consumers buy, rent or subscribe to view content.

“The ability to invest in the $2 trillion-a-year global entertainment industry has traditionally been off-limits to all but a handful of banks and privileged insiders,” said Christopher Woodrow, Chairman and CEO at MovieCoin. “Our platform and token are game changers in that they will radically transform the ways in which motion pictures, television programs and other media projects are funded.”

Igor Khmel, Founder and CEO at BANKEX, added, “The increase in transparency introduced by the platform makes the tokenized asset clear and understandable to institutional investors and the professional finance community. It represents the first commercial case of real asset tokenization, globally and in the U.S., and is one of the clearest examples of how best-in-class technology and innovative thinking is being combined to completely reshape a hardened industry sector like film production with the help of blockchain technology and the digital asset economy.”

“I had this friend who was my roommate for a while. She seemed really normal in every way except that she wouldn’t buy shampoo. She would only use my shampoo. And after a year it’s like, “When are you going to buy your own shampoo?” It was her way of digging in her heels. It was a certain sense of entitlement, or a certain anger. It was so interesting to me why she wouldn’t buy her own fucking shampoo. It was like,“I’m gonna use yours.” It was coming from a place of “You have more money than me, I just know it”—whether I did or I didn’t. Or maybe she felt, “You have a better life than me,” or “You have a better room than me in the apartment.” It was hostile. And she was a really close friend! There was never any other shampoo and I knew she was washing her hair. And clearly I have a thing about shampoo, as we see in ‘Friends with Money.’ I had some nice shampoo. So I found that psychologically so interesting how a person can function normally in every way and yet have this aberrance—it’s like a skip in the record. It was a sense of entitlement, I think. I put that in Olivia’s character, too, with her stealing someone’s face cream.”

“When books become a thing, they can no longer be fine.

“Literary people get mad at Knausgård the same way they get mad at Jonathan Franzen, a writer who, if I’m being honest, might be fine. I’m rarely honest about Jonathan Franzen. He’s an extremely annoying manI have only read bits and pieces of his novels, and while I’ve stopped reading many novels even though they were pretty good or great, I have always stopped reading Jonathan Franzen’s novels because I thought they were aggressively boring and dumb and smug. But why do I think this? I didn’t read him when he was a new interesting writer who wrote a couple of weird books and then hit it big with ‘The Corrections,’ a moment in which I might have picked him up with curiosity and read with an open mind; I only noticed him once, after David Foster Wallace had died, he became the heir apparent for the Great American Novelist position, once he had had that thing with Oprah and started giving interviews in which he said all manner of dumb shit; I only noticed him well after I had been told he was An Important Writer.

“So I can’t and shouldn’t pretend that I am unmoved by the lazily-satisfied gentle arrogance he projects or when he is given license to project it by the has-the-whole-world-gone-crazy development of him being constantly crowned and re-crowned as Is He The Great American Writer. What I really object to is this, and if there’s anything to his writing beyond it, I can’t see it and can’t be bothered. Others read him and tell me he’s actually a good writer—people whose critical instincts I have learned to respect—so I feel sure that he’s probably a perfectly fine, that his books are fine, and that probably even his stupid goddamned bird essays are probably also fine.

“But it’s too late. He has become a thing; he can’t be fine.”
