  • Intresting but shows a flawed system

    By Mattcarnes
    So it explains how it works rather well, but bitcoin is just a useless fad powered by people who have very irrational fears of "the man", because they watched too many horrible movies. They activity premote it to buy drugs without consequences, yet if government wants to regulate it to stop it being a safe haven of criminals, oh god the government is suddenly a tyrant.

    I learned so much watching this film! Great for anyone interested in learning more about Bitcoin
  • An hour and a half infomercial

    By Pnutski3
    This "documentary" is basically an hour and a half long infomercial about bitcoins. While the film addressed the development of bitcoins, the one sided optimism was annoying. People in Sub Sahara are going to use bitcoins? Step away from the computer….
  • Amazing Doc!!

    By DocWatcher_72
    This doc captures the excitement and hope of the early days of bitcoin. It's a time capsule we're lucky to have! Fascinating material.
  • If you don’t know, you probably should.

    Watch the movie. If you don’t already have a bitcoin plant growing in your mind, the seed will be planted. If your plant is alive, this movie is like adding fertilizer. Im going to buy more bitcoin!!!
  • Love this film

    Really well done. I didn't know much about Bitcoin. After watching this, I can't stop researching. I would like to be a miner.
  • The bit coin primer!

    By JayPeaDee
    A good overview of “the bit coin thing.” A bit propaganda-y in parts, but I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to know what bitcoin is all about.
