About the Movie
Bitcoin is the most disruptive invention since the internet, and now an ideological battle is underway between fringe utopists and mainstream capitalism. Bitcoin's early pioneers sought to blur the lines of sovereignty and the financial status quo. After years of underground development Bitcoin grabbed the attention of a curious public, and the ire of the regulators the technology had subverted. After landmark arrests of prominent cyber criminals Bitcoin faces its most severe adversary yet, the very banks it was built to destroy.
Clearly presented and well researched
This documentary covers the history and future implications of Bitcoin and other digital currencies and presents this complex topic in a manner that's easy to understand. It looks like most every major player was interviewed.
Bitcoin vs Central Banking
I enjoyed this documentary because of its chronological storytelling interspersed with personal experiences and comparisons between the two Banking systems. It's interesting that movies like The Big Short, Margin Call and Bitcoin reveal not only the corruption of central banking and Wall Street during the 2008 crisis, but that no one went to jail as a result.
I recommend this movie for prompting viewers to think about Banking, Changes and Reforms.
Informative and covers a lot of ground
I had some understanding of Bitcoin, but didn’t know the history or trajectory, individuals involved, etc and this laid it all out. It wasn’t heavy-handed one way or another, like many docs, so I liked coming to my own conclusions. The only thing I wish it had was even more information/details but it was already tightly packed as it was so I’m guessing it would have been way too long. Maybe a part two in the future?
