Bitcoin: The End Of Money As We Know It traces the history of money from the bartering societies of the ancient world to the trading floors of Wall St. The documentary exposes the practices of central banks and the dubious financial actors who brought the world to its knees in the last crisis. It highlights the Government influence on the money creation process and how it causes inflation. Moreover, this film explains how most money we use today is created out of thin air by banks when they create debt. Epic in scope, this film examines the patterns of technological innovation and questions everything you thought you knew about money. Is Bitcoin an alternative to national currencies backed by debt? Will Bitcoin and cryptocurrency spark a revolution in how we use money peer to peer? Is it a gift to criminals? Or is it the next bubble waiting to burst? If you trust in your money just as it is - this film has news for you. Written by Torsten Hoffmann

I was fortunate enough to see bits of the early trailers last year and was very much looking forward to this release. This film did not disappoint. It gives a very through explanation of the history of money which I found to be very informative.
The interviews were excellent and the film gave a well rounded, cohesive storyline that should leave newcomers to Bitcoin fairly well informed about what it is and why it matters.
This documentary is a must-see for everyone wanting a good history lesson in money, who want to learn about bitcoin, and see the possibilities with the future of crypto-currency.
