"For the inquisitive minds about the inherent flaws in our current monetary system and how money works in general, this simplified overview of Bitcoin is truly refreshing. Many complex issues about the protocol is explained in laymen terms to enable any family member to appreciate the invention for what it accomplishes. The internet of money has been spawn and naysayers would one day regret not having explored this invention beyond first misconceptions. This documentary provides a great intro into the early adopters' lives and why the community is blossoming in a time when the rest of the world is sinking deeper into depression and debt. It invites one to look beyond mainstream misrepresentations and that it is only a black market currency. Great documentary indeed. Would recommend it to any friend."

"I watched and totally enjoyed it. It is quite easy to watch and almost completely non technical which is good for the non-bit-coiners. It covers basically all the highs and lows of bit-coin from almost day one and right up to the fall of the biggest exchange .
There is no hiding of all the problems bit-coin had and faces in the future but at the same time it is very optimistically told (of course).
Even if you are not interested in investing in this- it is good to know what it is all about- and this movie can introduce the subject in an interesting way .
It would be interesting to hear an opinion of someone who basically doesn't know anything about bit-coin - whom I think should really be the people to watch this." Written by ari-saltiel on IMDb.com
