Storyline

Not since the invention of the Internet has there been such a disruptive technology as Bitcoin. Bitcoin's early pioneers sought to blur the lines of sovereignty and the financial status quo. After years of underground development Bitcoin grabbed the attention of a curious public, and the ire of the regulators the technology had subverted. After landmark arrests of prominent cyber criminals Bitcoin faces its most severe adversary yet, the very banks it was built to destroy. Written by Periscope

An unfiltered rehash of blogs
15 August 2017 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

This is not really a documentary. This is just a quick rehash of blog posts and some talking heads brought in to make it look respectable. And there is no story to tell here, just some data, too badly structured even for a book published with a not so great publisher.
