What Is Your Favorite Bitcoin Documentary?

Wed Apr 05, 2017 12:03 am

Over the past 5 months or so I've been an avid student, trader and investor in Bitcoin, I've literally sucked myself into the world of Bitcoin and financial systems. I've read a few books and watched just about every documentary on the subject I could find.

I will say that understanding the fundamentals of how Bitcoin works and also how and where it can be used comes in extremely handy. Many of my friends just think it's used for drugs, gaming or other obscure uses Grin. I'd imagine 90% of journalists that write about Bitcoin in mass media have little to no idea how it works.

Thus far, my favorite documentary on the subject is Magic Money, which was recently released and if you have Amazon Prime you can watch for free (Side note: it is interesting how Netflix barely has any documentaries on Bitcoin while Amazon has almost all of them). There are also a few on YouTube that are particularly enjoyable such as Bitcoin Phenomenon and the Bitcoin Film movies. http://bitcoinfilm.org/

I'm sure the people that visit this forum are some of the most knowledgeable folk around on the subject. So, I'm wondering...What are your favorite Bitcoin documentaries?

My goal is to create a fully comprehensive list of Bitcoin movies and documentaries, and I have kept track of every documentary I've come across as a list on my website: http://www.smartbitcoininvestments.com/ ... tary-list/ so if I am missing anything please feel free to let me know and I will add it!

My favourite Bitcoin documentary is still "The Bitcoin Gospel" by VPRO Backlight:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zKuoqZLyKg

It's an excellent introductory documentary to Bitcoin's use cases and I suppose the ideology behind it.

If you only watch two minutes of this documentary, watch the last two - it shows Roger (Ver) demonstrating his passion for Bitcoin, and more importantly, why he has such a passion for it:

https://youtu.be/8zKuoqZLyKg?t=46m30s

Anyone that can say Roger is anything other than a proponent of a solid future for Bitcoin after watching that video clearly doesn't understand the driving force behind his involvement in Bitcoin and - outside of my own relationship with him - it was those 2 minutes of footage that showed my respect of him as a legitimate, genuine and morally just human being was very well placed indeed.

Anyone that believes so strongly in Bitcoin's ability to right the wrongs in this world - and that demonstrates the economic awareness and knowledge running parallel to that and to help achieve righting those wrongs - is a person who should receive unwavering support. Bitcoin is the future, but we can only get it there with the right intentions behind it.

Mine is the one with Morgan Spurlock >> The Inside Man Bitcoin

Morgan is relatively new to Bitcoin (or was in 2015 when this was filmed) so it's a good newbie's investigation into our world...but it gets deep. He talks to the right people and there's a great clip of a Congressman or someone making an ass out of themselves bc they know nothing about it.

The Bitcoin Gospel was an extremely powerful documentary. I thought it was very well directed and emotionally charged. Good stuff to show to non believers!

Has anyone watched the doc called Banking on Bitcoin yet? It just came out this year. The opening scene follows Charlie Schrem on the streets of New York. I'm going to try to watch it today.

The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin - Great documentary on the origins of bitcoin, the crazyness of 2012/13, and where we go from here

The Bitcoin Gospel - Nice portrait of Roger Ver and spreading the word about bitcoin

Banking on Bitcoin - Highlights the financial sector vs. bitcoin

The Inside Man Bitcoin - Good primer, Morgen Spurlock as a naive observer of the bitcoin phenomenon (you either like him or you don't)

The Blockchain and Us - Not a bitcoin doc primary but a good non-technical conversation starter about "changing the world" with blockchain tech

Interesting. I'll have to check this one out. In my experience, Roger hasn't been great about explaining things to people who either (1) don't already have much knowledge of the topic or (2) may take a constructive opinion against his own.

I'll let you know what I think.

Just saw this documentary last night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8kua5B5K3I

It's called Life Inside a Secret Chinese Bitcoin Mine.

It's short, but a really good look into these larger mining operations. Seems easy enough for anyone to start! If they had a couple hundred bitcoin as seed money to get them started!

Apart from "The Bitcoin Gospel", I can recommend "The Magic money" and "The Rise and rise of Bitcoin", these are great, imo.

LIke everyone else said above, The Bitcoin Gospel and I would recommend "The rise and rise of bitcoin" by Nicholas Mross, too.

Before I saw the Bitcoin Gospel movie on this thread, I had never heard of it. I really liked a decent movie.

It’s easiest to watch a movie, I prefer reading and, in turn, can advise several books. “Mastering Bitcoin: A Guide for Dummies,” “How Money Gained Freedom,” “Digital Gold.” Worth reading.

Yes, these are really not bad books, but films are also interesting to watch at your leisure. The film is for general understanding, the books contain more detailed information and knowledge.
