Can't imagine a better documentary to introduce bitcoin to your friends

I thought the trailer was absolutely fantastic (watched it many many times, made the whole issue of money 'cool' which is not easy) so I had high expectations going in but they were very much exceeded.

I did not expect the 'history of money' section but it was definitely a good idea to put this in- in my experience, the average person has a very hard time grasping the idea that currencies don't last forever. The doc made the point very well that actually the financial system/currency we use is constantly in flux- and in fact our current financial system has only existed since 1971 (watch the doc to find out why!).

The doc then flowed into what bitcoin is and how it differs from the alternative. I cannot fathom how you can watch this section and arrive at any conclusion other than the fact that bitcoin is one of the greatest innovations of our lifetime.

I recommend this doc to anyone no matter how knowledgeable you are about bitcoin.

Broad scope, unique analysis and gripping story telling

This documentary takes a sobering look at the central role that money plays in the world. It is not just a lesson on the near- limitless potential of Bitcoin and blockchain based technology, but it is fundamentally a film about money and exchange.

The film tells the story of money and bitcoin by tracing the origins of money back to the age of barter. From here, through use of various forms of footage and clever editing, the film tells stories of power, control and deceit. It traces the rise of the Medici and others through the history of banking and commerce.

The End Of Money is as enjoyable as it is informative. It uses economic, political and cultural history to place bitcoin into a context that does much to explain its importance.

This film is perfect for anyone looking to understand bitcoin and what the central and commercial banks have done to our money. Enlightening and shocking.

Excellent

I really enjoyed this documentary. I liked that is firstly gets into the question about what is money and a short history of it. Then it goes on about how the actual system works and how money is being created out of debts by the fractional reserve system. From there we understand why bitcoin might be important in the future from now. Finally it explains what is bitcoin and how the whole system works. I felt that 1h long was a bit too short to cover the subject of money and bitcoin combined. On the other hand it was a very straight forwarded documentary. I strongly recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in the concept of money and wants to understand what goes wrong with our current monetary system.
