I watched and totally enjoyed it.
21 October 2014 | by ari-saltielSee all my reviews

I watched and totally enjoyed it. It is quite easy to watch and almost completely non technical which is good for the non-bit-coiners. It covers basically all the highs and lows of bit-coin from almost day one and right up to the fall of the biggest exchange .

There is no hiding of all the problems bit-coin had and faces in the future but at the same time it is very optimistically told (of course).

Even if you are not interested in investing in this- it is good to know what it is all about- and this movie can introduce the subject in an interesting way .

It would be interesting to hear an opinion of someone who basically doesn't know anything about bit-coin - whom I think should really be the people to watch this.
