I watched this movie when it first aired officially at the House of Blues in Chicago prior to the 2014 Bitcoin conference there. I felt bursts of melancholy, joy and, yes, pride throughout the entire film. Daniel literally traveled the world and was there with some of the earliest Bitcoin pioneers and RECORDED it all. Nobody else has done that! This is a truly unique piece of history that you CANNOT miss, whether you're into Bitcoin or not. I truly believe that it will be remembered, talked about, and referenced for eternity or something close to it. Magnificent!!
