Broad scope, unique analysis and gripping story telling
This documentary takes a sobering look at the central role that money plays in the world. It is not just a lesson on the near- limitless potential of Bitcoin and blockchain based technology, but it is fundamentally a film about money and exchange.
The film tells the story of money and bitcoin by tracing the origins of money back to the age of barter. From here, through use of various forms of footage and clever editing, the film tells stories of power, control and deceit. It traces the rise of the Medici and others through the history of banking and commerce.
The End Of Money is as enjoyable as it is informative. It uses economic, political and cultural history to place bitcoin into a context that does much to explain its importance.
This film is perfect for anyone looking to understand bitcoin and what the central and commercial banks have done to our money. Enlightening and shocking.
