The documentary film “Ethereum: The Infinite Garden” can record massive financial success even before its premiere. The film project raised 1,035.96 ETH via crowdfunding, which is currently over 1.8 million US dollars. Originally, just under 750 ETH were targeted. Effectively, however, “only” 984.16 ethers of the taken ETH went to the documentary, like the filmmakers on theirs Twitter profile announced:
And that’s it. 984.16 ETH were raised for the film. 31.08 ETH go to @gitcoin, 20.72 ETH to @ Carbonfund.org. THANK YOU to everyone who supported us and congratulations to our new producers. Now let’s make a movie!

With the participation in crowdfunding one wants to support open source Ethereum projects as well as set an example for climate protection. Because the initiative Carbonfund.org is primarily dedicated to reducing global carbon emissions.
Ethereum as an ecosystem with plants and insects
The appeal for donations started last Wednesday. The fundraising ended three days later, on Friday, July 16. A total of 662 donors donated. In addition to acknowledgments, the producers also give the three most generous donors a place in the credits that are shown at the end of the film. However, it is unclear who was able to get the coveted three places.
As the title suggests, the documentation covers the Ethereum network. The documentation is intended to address the “innovative real applications of the Ethereum blockchain, the inveterate community of enthusiasts and developers and their creator Vitalik Buterin”. The film aims to move away from the difficult-to-grasp technological narrative towards a colorful ecosystem with “plants, fruity soils and insects”. To what extent the producers manage to implement this comparison in an understandable way remains to be seen. The community is excited and looking forward to the premiere in winter 2023.
Meanwhile, the premiere of Ethereum 2.0 is still a long way off. Earlier this month had with the Sygnum Bank the first financial service provider announced that it would offer staking for its customers in the new network.
