A feature documentary that explores the rise of a new Internet; decentralized, encrypted, dangerous and beyond the law; with particular focus on the FBI capture of the Tor hidden service Silk Road, and the judicial aftermath.

Excellent movie. It is be likely to be a great historical capture for mankind (in case bitcoin survive). This movie captures the some part of history of this ongoing experiment , which is important to some of us the crazy one's ..
While a lot of characters in the movie may have questionable background. But have we looked around us ( lately )..
At the same time there are plenty of very smart people who are devoting their manhours toward this historical project. Jeff Garzik, Peter todd, Mike Hern Vladimir, Gavin and many others.
Those who call bitcoin a pyramid scheme You are right. Here is a quote from satoshi himself..
"If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry."- Satoshi - July 2010.
Thanks for the effort ... Enjoy the movie.
