The highly anticipated bitcoin documentary “Bitcoin: The End of Money As We Know It” has been released today, announced Torsten Hoffman, the film’s writer and producer.
It highlights the most interesting use cases of bitcoin and the blockchain technology by avoiding the complex technical aspects of secondary applications. The documentary begins by explaining the problems of current financial systems, including hyperinflation and national debt crisis, to emphasize bitcoin’s benefits and how bitcoin could ultimately be a solution to most of the current financial problems.
The documentary was produced and distributed by an award-winning team of professional and experienced television producers. Their films were licensed by international broadcasters and media companies including Neflix, CCTV, Samsung Electronics, Virgin Media, LG Electronics, Sky Deutschland, Orange and minor broadcasters in 20 countries.
The trailer is available on Vimeo. The team has included interviews with prominent bitcoin entrepreneurs, investors and authors, including Roger Ver and Andreas M. Antonopolous.
“The existing banking systems extract enormous value from society and is parasitic in nature,” Antonopolous explains.
The documentary won several international awards, including 2015 Best International Documentary award at Anthem Film Festival (Freedom Fest), 2015 Best Libertarian Theme Film at Anthem Film Festival (Freedom Fest) and 2015 Special Jury Prize at Amsterdam Film Festival.
Ultimately, the documentary states, “There are some who want to kill it. Get rid of it. Burn your dollars, your euros, your yen and transform every penny you have into 1’s and 0’s – a digital currency, entrusted by the web and computers spread across the planet, magic Internet money, its called cryptocurrency bitcoin.”
