BRAID, a psychological thriller directed by award winning filmmaker Mitzi Peirone, is the first major feature film to be fully funded through an equity crowdsale using cryptocurrency. Earlier this month, Crypto Insider covered the launch of the BRAID crowdsale, which then successfully raised $1.7 million. Now we present an interview with Peirone.

The cryptocurrency market boom of the past three months seemed to be cooling off somewhat last week, though market capitalizations are still very high compared to historic levels, with the combined value of all cryptocurrencies comfortable over $0.1 trillion, according to data from coinmarketcap.com. Saturday saw a significant drop in prices. One exception is Litecoin, which gained 44 percent on Monday, reaching an all-time high over $52 USD.
