A new documentary “Bitcoin: The End of Money As We Know It” has been released featuring Roger Ver and Andreas Antonopoulos among other bitcoin entrepreneurs and investors.

The 60-minute documentary directed by Torsten Hoffman was crowdfunded by 116 backers who in total invested $17,362 AUD. Hoffman is based in Australia and has MBA in Finance from the University of Oxford. He is also the founder of the 3D Content Hub, a company that helps producers distribute their work.

The documentary seeks to explain bitcoin, “this controversial and influential innovation”, to those who still do not understand it. The documentary gives an account of the history of money and exposes banks and other financial institutions as well as governments as causing crisis and inflation. The nature of contemporary fiat money is shown as elusive and ephemeral as well as based on debt. In this context bitcoin is shown as an alternative.

“If you trust in your money just as it is, this film has news for you,” the synopsis reads.

The trailer is now available on Vimeo and the full version can be purchased there or on theprotocol.tv for bitcoins.

CoinFox wrote about another bitcoin documentary, “Ulterior States”, by IamSatoshi films that explores the connection between bitcoin code, activism and freedom of speech in a series of interviews taken in 2012-2015. Earlier, CoinFox wrote about The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin, a full featured hour-and-a-half-long documentary, produced by Nicholas Mross, which looks at the stories of different start-ups and entrepreneurs, as well as various subcultures within the bitcoin community, and examines the social and political impact of bitcoin.
