5 Must Watch Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency Documentaries

Nisha Ramesh

The concept of documentaries has lingered around ever since videography was introduced to humankind.

In recent times, the popularity of OTT platforms such as Netflix, Hotstar, and amazon prime has brought the art of documentaries to life. 

A good documentary is like a window to the real world. It inspires us and tells us stories we have never seen before. There are documentaries on human life, animals, business tycoons, and even the success stories of wall street. 

Wait for it; this is for the crypto fans out there.

There are many surreal documentaries based on bitcoins and cryptocurrencies too.

Cryptocurrencies are a comparatively new market that entered about a decade ago, and there is so much buzz around the internet regarding it.

But there is nothing like watching a movie about it. 

Hence, I present a list of documentaries that will keep anyone fixated regardless of whether you are an ardent cryptocurrency follower or are just curious about it.

If not, let me tell you. Satoshi Nakomoto is a brilliant person or a group of persons who came up with Bitcoin’s idea in 2009. This documentary revolves around the fantastic argument of why the world should choose cryptocurrencies over traditional financial and banking system.

The filmmaker, Tomer Kantor, has recorded well over fifty interviews with financial and industry professionals from various continents.

This is the kind of documentary you should watch if you want to understand how cryptos have developed over a decade.

It sheds light on how many countries in the world are adopting cryptocurrencies and using it daily. It does not just give you a positive view of the crypto world but also addresses the various issues holding this industry back.

It is a documentary that takes us on a jolly ride back in time, showing a glimpse of the evolution of money we use today.

While watching it, you will be walking through the ancient societies, the current financial system, the beginning of wall street, and towards the modern world where bitcoins have become prominent.
