Obsessed with bitcoins? Perhaps you would like to see it being featured in a movie. The following are three of the best movies that depict bitcoin in creative and exciting plots.
The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin
This is an American documentary directed by Nicholas Mross and written by Patrick Lope, Daniel Mross, and Nicholas Mross. Released in October 2014, the film follows the bitcoin exploration of Daniel Mross, a computer programmer who is an avid fan of cryptocurrency. He has been fascinated by bitcoin ever since he discovered it in 2011.
This documentary film was created upon the belief (by its creators) that bitcoin is the future of currency. According to the filmmakers, The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin is meant to help expedite the process of adopting bitcoins.
The film features Daniel Mross going to different parts of the world to meet people who are doing their part to help treat the future for bitcoin. Mross interviews bitcoin’s pioneers and dedicated supporters who had to go through a lot before they found success as bitcoin finally rose to where it is now.
Banking on Bitcoin
A Netflix feature film, Banking on Bitcoin is a historical documentary directed by Christopher Cannucciari. It presents the beginnings of bitcoin and its subsequent rise to becoming the most popular cryptocurrency at present. It serves as a good introduction to the world of cryptocurrency.
Bearing the tagline “In Open Source We Trust,” this film explores bitcoin, perceived to be most disruptive invention since the internet, as it sets an ideological battle between mainstream capitalists and fringe utopists. Banking on Bitcoin presents leading personalities associated with bitcoin such as David Chaum, Charlie Shrem, Erik Voorhees, and the Winklevoss twins, who are seen to be defining how this cryptocurrency is shaping people’s lives.
It’s not exactly the kind of action movie you would be willing to spend money on. Bitcoin Heist is a Vietnamese movie with not so flattering reviews. Its plot revolves around an Interpol agent’s efforts to catch the world’s most wanted thief, an international money launderer. In the process, he had to assemble an elite group of hackers and come up with a sophisticated plan to conduct a cryptocurrency heist.
Bitcoin Heist cannot be compared to well thought out and smart heist movies. However, the bitcoin elements in it can be enough to hold the attention of a bitcoin enthusiast. The bitcoin details can be intriguing but for some who know a lot about bitcoins, the movie may catch their attention because they want to scrutinize each and every detail.
The movie has a lot of cliches but there’s enough action to make it enjoyable. If you are new to Vietnamese movies, you might find movie refreshingly interesting. It can be said that it’s slightly better than many of the crime thrillers churned out by many Chinese movie outfits.
Not many movies featuring bitcoin have been released yet so bitcoin fans can still expect considerably better movies about their favourite currency in the future. For now, if you are looking for a movie that features bitcoin, the ones listed above can be good choices to spend an hour or so with.
