THE RISE AND RISE OF BITCOINWhat is money, really?

THE RISE AND RISE OF BITCOIN

Questioning whether the rise of Bitcoin could cause a monetary paradigm shift, this thought-provoking documentary examines the potential social and political impact of an open-source digital currency—a new kind of money. Through the story of one man's obsession, it explains the crypto-currency's conception, growth, and trajectory—essentially, why Bitcoin is where it is. Rendering a complex subject understandable, the program gives voice to supportive entrepreneurs and startups as well as detractors and skeptics. Warning: frequent use of profanity. Grades 9 and up. English with English subtitles. Color. 96 minutes. ©2014.
