Storyline

Dan is a 35 year old computer programmer from Pittsburgh who lives a busy life. Along with balancing work, his marriage, and raising his three boys, Dan spends much of his time actively involved in all things Bitcoin. After discovering Bitcoin in 2011, his love and obsession for the crypto-currency was born, revealing an uncharted world of new possibilities for him to explore.

We'll look at the competitive mining market and the various subcultures within the Bitcoin community. You'll encounter a variety of characters and opinions as we examine the social and political impact of an open-source digital currency. Will the rise of Bitcoin bring a monetary paradigm shift that will forever change the world? Written by Nicholas Mross

If you want to know about Bitcoin and where it's coming from, watch this movie
21 October 2014 | by andre.kosterSee all my reviews

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!
