I remember the first time I heard about Bitcoin. I remember thinking “Why would anyone want that? What a silly idea.” Did you know that today one bitcoin is worth over $200? Really. I checked. If only I had grabbed a few when they first came out.
The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin (2014) DVD
In case you aren’t exactly sure what a Bitcoin is, it’s an open-source digital currency. If that doesn’t help much, think of it as digital currency. The neat thing about Bitcoin is that it’s a digital currency that is entirely separate from traditional currency. If the world economies tank, Bitcoin will not be impacted at all except maybe to make it worth more.
The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin (2014) takes you from the introduction of Bitcoin when it was worth just pennies in 2011 to 2014 where it’s worth over $200. You will learn about the entrepreneurs who were involved in the growth of Bitcoin and some of the new startup businesses that have begun as a result. You will see how Bitcoin are mined and watch the value rise and fall.
The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin (2014) teaches you more than what Bitcoin is. It makes you think about how Bitcoin will change the world including both social and political changes.This is a form of currency that is not run by any government. Bitcoin allows access to banking to many people who currently don’t have access due to poor credit or no credit. All Bitcoin transactions are recorded and a matter of public access. You can’t cheat this system and that makes it intriguing to many people.
I’m fascinated by the concept of Bitcoin and The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin (2014) helped answer a lot of my questions. At over $200 for one Bitcoin, I won’t be investing in tons of them right now but I am watching it closely. If you’re interested as well, I definitely recommend you watch the movie.
