He talks about how he helped Satoshi Nakatomo. Except that, he explained why bitcoin seemed like a good idea to him after he read the Bitcoin’s whitepaper. Logically, he talks about the importance of BTC. For example, he says that “virtual money” is a solution to a double-spending problem that many people/businesses already experienced.
5. Banking on Bitcoin
The title of this documentary contains the word “bitcoin”. However, the main subject of this documentary is not BTC. Here people can get a clear explanation of what money is. More precisely, how the entire system works. We will say a few words about the movie. The movie says that money is nothing more than an accounting system. Yet, the authors are asking “what if that system tampers”? What if these issues are repeating over and over again? We get a system that is a complete scam! When the system is centralized, it can’t be effective and functional. After they explain that, they start explaining why bitcoin is a good alternative. They represent it as the “honest money” that will stop fraud and corruption.
6. Rise of Bitcoin

7. The Bitcoin Experiment
Have you ever been to some of the Scandinavian countries? Well, this movie can teach you a few things about these countries. Amund Sjolie Sveen will take you to a road trip from Oslo to Stockholm. But, this is not a basic trip. Amund meets with people that already have experience with bitcoin. Something that he wants to find out is – is Scandinavia ready to adapt to bitcoin? The good thing about this movie is – objectiveness. His interlocutors are not all big fans of bitcoin. He also talks with people that are skeptics. Neutral people need to hear both sides of the story. That is the only way to truly understand what bitcoin is.
