The movie whose producers includes Future, Matthew Hirsch as executive producer, Palak Patel, and Joel Silver is set to be released in mid-July.


In the movie, two college students chase a hard drive storing a fortune in bitcoin after they mistakenly sold the computer holding the drive to a pawn shop. This video is classified under the genre exploitation which was created by authors attempting to exploit movie themes which many producers would consider a taboo.


Movies which fall under the exploitation genre mostly feature sex, drugs, and violence. The original super fly movie further falls under the sub-genre of blaxploitation signifying the first time an African American characters and community were placed in the spotlight. The 1972 crime drama superfly is the best example of blaxploitation that will be reproduced in the new bitcoin movie.

The 2018 edition of the movie exploits most of the usual taboos neglected in family movies and further bases its script on a hot topic in the financial industry-cryptocurrency and crime.

The popular synonym “ I swap cash for crypto, and redefined the hustle was the expression made by the young priest in the movie”.
