Storyline

Bitcoin: The End Of Money As We Know It traces the history of money from the bartering societies of the ancient world to the trading floors of Wall St. The documentary exposes the practices of central banks and the dubious financial actors who brought the world to its knees in the last crisis. It highlights the Government influence on the money creation process and how it causes inflation. Moreover, this film explains how most money we use today is created out of thin air by banks when they create debt. Epic in scope, this film examines the patterns of technological innovation and questions everything you thought you knew about money. Is Bitcoin an alternative to national currencies backed by debt? Will Bitcoin and cryptocurrency spark a revolution in how we use money peer to peer? Is it a gift to criminals? Or is it the next bubble waiting to burst? If you trust in your money just as it is - this film has news for you. Written by Torsten Hoffmann

Best Overall Review of our Money System as it sits Today
8 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

I am a believer in Bitcoin and lover of any documentary that talks about how important it is in today's world of corrupt money and banking systems.

That being said, This one takes it a step further and really explains how the banks make "magic money" with the federal reserve to keep things moving. I can honestly say for anyone who still believes in the dollar they really need to see this. Even if you do not believe in bitcoin you should should really watch this. This documentary is more about the state of our countries financial affairs. It is definitely worth an hour of your time.
