I recently read about a recommendation in Jimmy Song’s newsletter on The Digital Rush. A Bitcoin Dokumentary, which I would like to recommend here.
The creators do not follow the what-is-true Bitcoin for beginners approach, as we have already seen enough, but have a refreshing approach.
Doers instead of representatives
Instead of talking to the usual suspects and colorful dogs, i.e., sufficiently well-known investors, advocates and thought leaders, this documentary gives a voice to many of those who have not been the first to be associated with Profit Secret in public perception. However, those who are entitled to do so because they are the ones who have been working on the implementation of Bitcoin for years and in some cases decades and who have helped shape the Bitcoin ecosystem.
Somewhat man-heavy, but still top-notch in terms of content. The interview partners
The good half hour offers thereby new interesting views among other things into the developing history of Bitcoin.
From the film description:
„The documentary The Digital Rush is about interviewing key figures in the bitcoin ecosystem and documenting the community and its events. A proper representation of the bitcoin proposition will be provided: cypherpunk movement, technological choices, monetary impact and cultural relevance, etc. It will emphasize the emergence of bitcoin as digital gold.
Aimed at a non-technical audience, the documentary will explain bitcoin using the words of its community members; their advanced (often geeky) technical comments will be properly framed between plain informative segments providing a gradual educational path.
The progress of Bitcoin is also evident here
All in all a very worth seeing and demanding documentation also – or maybe even more so – for those who already know a bit more about Bitcoin. You can also see that a little courage to do less is more would have been good for the music here and there.
Which is beyond that in any case remarkable and shows up at the brought in Bitcoin-explanatory-clip of before umpteen years: How professional, mature, deeply, respectably and seriously today’s Bitcoin-explanatory films (and thus also the perception of Bitcoin) became.
