If you want to know about Bitcoin and where it's coming from, watch this movie
Bitcoin may sound very abstract, but it's carried by people of flesh and blood. This movie follows some of the main players in the first years of Bitcoin. See their excitement, share their passion. Sometimes they stumble or fall, but they keep going. In between, you get to learn how Bitcoin works and what it's all about.
If you want to know more about Bitcoin, but are less of a techie and more of a peoples person, this movie is for you.
The only thing I missed in the part that covered 2013 is the developments in China. I can imagine that it was a bit 'out of scope' for the makers, but it felt like an omission to me, especially since its relevance for the November rally. But other than that, a great movie!
