So without further a due, in no particular order, here are some documentaries for you to acquaint yourself with Bitcoin.

I am Satoshi

There is nothing more interesting about the Bitcoin revolution than the fact that the founder of its underlying technology, chose to keep his identity anonymous. All we have left of him is the blockchain tech and a pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. This is what makes this documentary all the more interesting. From being titled an “eye-opener” to winning an award for the “Most Creative Video” at the Blockchain awards, this is a must watch for an insight in the world of cryptocurrency.  The documentary strongly distinguishes the traditional banking system from cryptocurrency, suggesting solid reasons to use the latter.

This particular documentary takes you on the visual journey of Bitcoin. Right from the beginning of Bitcoin which was clouded with controversies, and the stages of unprecedented growth following it, till the very present day. The best part about this documentary is that, you don’t have to be some Bitcoin fanatic to understand it. It is actually scripted jargon-free.

The End of Money As We Know It

As ominous as the name sounds, the documentary itself isn’t. In fact this documentary takes you through the journey of money, from barter to the WallStreet era. It poses some authentic questions pertaining to the existing monetary system and really gets you thinking about the things you have been doing unquestioningly.

Life on Bitcoin

Argentine and its trembling economy are no secret; this documentary explores the role Bitcoin can play in tackling the biggest economical problem of the country- high inflation. Not only does it have the potential to control the inflation, but it will also provide a medium for citizens to trade globally.
