I was alerted by Reddit and immediately went to download the torrent from The Pirate Bay. I recommend that you follow the recommendation in the title of the Reddit post by The Pirate Bay: “if you like it please support them and buy a copy.” You can also give them extra support by purchasing merchandise – how about a nice t-shirt or a tote bag? Of course, you can pay with Bitcoin.
The film explores the beginnings of Bitcoin, the pioneers and the Bitcoin culture, and how Bitcoin has developed and evolved since its inception in 2008.
The film has just finished downloading, and I will watch it later today. I am sure it will be an ideal introduction for my wife and friends who don’t get the magic of Bitcoin yet.
