Blockstack | Commercial Declaration

Something as rebellious as Blockstack’s idea of creating new internet needed something massive to change the status quo: a declaration. So we drew parallels between the American Revolution and the current digital landscape to highlight what’s at stake every time we go online: privacy, security, and freedom. The commercial—featuring the country’s top Thomas Jefferson impersonator and a meticulous re-creation of his actual study— proved revolutionary in other ways, garnering unanimous applause at our client’s annual Blockstack Summit, plus unwavering enthusiasm from devs ready to dive into the platform.
