The American company American Cinema International is working on a new TV show called Cryptos, which in an accessible language will tell viewers about the cryptocurrency industry. This is reported by News Bitcoin com.

The plot is based on the story of a startup trying to launch a cryptocurrency entertainment platform.

Co-producers of the film will be the founders of the Academy School of Blockchain Jason King and Eric Swords.

The series is being produced by American Cinema International and we’re currently in pre-production at the moment. I came on board about six months ago after reading the pilot and I helped develop the story architecture for the first season. We hope to start filming in May.

It is expected that 10 episodes will be shot for the first season, filming will begin in May.

The producers expressed the hope that the TV show would be interesting for large platforms, for example, Amazon Prime and Netflix.

In April 2018, American director Doug Carr began work on the series Hardfork, which tells about the dystopian future, where everything is built on cryptocurrency and augmented reality. Funds for the release were collected exclusively in cryptocurrency.

Binance, a Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange unit, has applied for a license under the new Payment Services Act, which entered into force on January 28.

We have already applied. We submitted the application pretty fast. Binance’s Singapore entity has been in close touch with the local regulators, and they have always been open-minded.

Under the new law, crypto companies in Singapore must register with the Monetary Authority and receive one of three licenses: an exchange of money, a standard or large payment institution. The measure is aimed at regulating payments and crypto trading using requirements for participants in the traditional finance industry. Zhao did not specify which of the licenses Binance Singapore chose.

Binance has been offering crypto-fiat trading services in Singapore since April 2019 and works with eight coins, including Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP. The trading platform is supported by Vertex Venture Holdings, a venture division of Singapore's Temasek Holdings.
