This documentary is based on the inherently deeper and darker part of the internet and is narrated by Keanu Reeves, which is definitely a bonus for everyone.  The plot follows stories about the Silk Road and it’s then unknown creator, Dread Pirate Roberts who ran the first unofficial Bitcoin marketplace.  However, that all changed when the authorities could no longer ignore this massive illegal platform and even shows audiences the complete arrest and sentencing of 29 year old Ross William Ulbricht who was then found as the official founder.

Notably the oldest and biggest movie production centered around Bitcoin that we could find, The rise and rise of Bitcoin has become something of a classic in the cryptoverse. It features the stories of the early bitcoin adopters such as Gavin Andresen who not only invested in the crypto, but is also famed to have been in direct contact with Nakamoto in the early days.

A similar watch to the Rise and Rise of Bitcoin but definitely has more action and drama in our opinion. The cases and stories are also more prolific and include the story of Bitinstant creator, Charlie
Shrem who was convicted of trying to launder a million dollars through the  Silk Road.

As a dialogue in the movie says, “Early adopters make the roads that we all travel. The first guy through the door gets shot. But somebody’s gotta go through the door.”
