About

(choo-choo) Get onboard and join us for an educational adventure which is full of fun and excitement! Follow Bob the Blocktrain and his friends, the Nodes, on their adventures through the magical and mysterious Blockchainland.

ABOUT BOB THE BLOCKTRAIN:


‘Bob the Blocktrain’ will be based on Savii Digital’s first educational book for kids. 

We love Bob the Blocktrain, and that’s why we now want to make him the sparkling, shiny star of our new animated cartoon series in both English and Chinese. Bob the Blocktrain is a playful character who is inviting everyone to explore the happy world of crazy cryptocurrencies and boundless blockchain fun. In it, Bob the Blocktrain, with the help of happy-go-lucky nodes and miners, transports you through mysterious Blockchainland so that you can explore and learn more about this new and magical place surrounding cryptocurrencies and blockchain.

There are many lands to visit in Blockchain land, as the applications of blockchain cross over many different sectors of industry and will be used in almost all future technology. Blockchain and its applications are so interesting and multipurpose that there are many lands and adventures that await, including Bob’s travels through the lands of Artificial Intelligence, the Entertainment and Gaming Industries, Banking, and so many more! Children will be educated without even knowing it is happening.

Let me tell you more about our project: In each episode you will learn something new and collect information that will help Bob the Blocktrain add on blocks so that he can grow and become the magnificent and wonderful train he always wanted to be. The ride through Blockchainland will be a turbulent one at times, but mostly magical, and always fun -  and we will meet many mysterious creatures such as Satoshi Nakamoto, the nodes, and miners. But watch out! Not everyone in Blockchainland has good intentions. Ben the Hacker is one of the most malicious villains the world has ever seen. But don’t worry - with the help of Bob the Blocktrain and his friends, they will overcome every difficulty in their way.

But first we will need your help.

Our minimum goal is it to produce twelve  6-7 minute episodes where your new friends will have fun and educate every viewer. But this is not only for the little ones. We know that there is a childish soul in each and every one of us waiting to be unleashed. And what better way to do so than while geeking out with your kids on the couch and talking about topics that will really matter in the near future.

In this series, we will explore everything from nodes and miners, encryptions and cryptography, hacking and decentralization, Satoshi Nakamoto, hashing and hash values, digital wallets and security keys, coins and tokens, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, fiat currencies, smart contracts and transactions, and all of the uses of Blockchain and its applications! Phew, and that is just the beginning!

‘Meet Bob the Blocktrain’ was our approach to teach topics like cryptocurrencies and blockchain in a fun but educational way. The book is fully illustrated, so we already have the looks of Bob and his friends settled but we now want to bring them to life. For this, Bob and his friends will need to get a voiceover and get some touch ups to make them look fabulous. This will require a lot of work from our animation team as well as our graphic designers. Your money will go straight to animation, voice recording, and our storyboard team. Help us bring Bob the Blocktrain to life! We would appreciate your love and support. And to show you how much, here are your benefits for getting on this ride with us:

Risks and challenges

Bob the Blocktrain is kind of a diva. For him to look glorious and stunning, our animation team will need to put in a lot of time and effort. But we are passionate about this and want to deliver Bob the Blocktrain to the best of our abilities – shiny and proud! We also want to create this as fast as possible, so that you can hop on the ride through Blockchainland with us. For that to happen we will first need your support. We would love to have you on the ride!
