In this article based on an article It is written from BTC News site, we are going to introduce 5 movies about Bitcoin that you can watch during the holidays. The first 4 movies that we mention include comprehensive explanations about Bitcoin and its alphabet; But the fifth movie only makes a small reference to Bitcoin. Stay with us.
1. This car is environmentally friendly
Duration: 38 minutes
Is the energy consumption of bitcoin mining one of its disadvantages or its feature? The opinion of this documentary is that the positive effects of Bitcoin mining process for the environment are more than its negative consequences. In fact, the film aims to dispel many misconceptions about Bitcoin mining. The director of this documentary is Jamie King, who became famous with the “Steal This Film” series. Enrique Posner and Swan Bitcoin company have also produced it.
In the first part of the film, the focus is on the oil dollar system. This film shows how the US military literally supports the oil dollar; Of course, the US military has been using unlimited energy for years. According to an agreement between the United States and Saudi Arabia in the 1970s, the Saudis promised that global oil market transactions would be done in dollars, and in return, the United States would protect the Middle East. With this action, global demand for this currency was permanently guaranteed. Think about the consequences of this important contract. The second part of the video also explains how Bitcoin mining helps finance green energy projects.
According to Alex Gladstein, Chief Strategy Officer of the Human Rights Foundation, Bitcoin can help finance the electrification of new areas and create new economic activities. He says this car can be environmentally friendly if we really want it to be. Magdalena Gronowska provides a more detailed explanation of renewable energy infrastructure. He says:
[بیت کوین] mocks renewable energy infrastructure and facilities; Because he himself is a full-time and 24-hour customer of this energy. When you have a regular buyer and a predictable income stream, it is easier to plan your operations and you can be sure that your project will be completed successfully.
2. Human B
Duration: 73 minutes
This new German documentary is one of the best films ever produced to introduce Bitcoin. In addition to the technical issues, Aaron Mucke and Eva Muhlenbaumer, the directors of this film, have produced an attractive audio-visual piece that flows like a river and is an aesthetic pleasure to watch.
This document is introduced as follows:
Man B shows us how people in Germany and Austria view the Bitcoin phenomenon. This is a global movement and it is important to hear all voices. In this documentary, we hear from authors like Der Gigi and Anita Posch about Bitcoin. Also, we get to know the views of Marc Friedrich, an economist, and Friedemann Brenneis, a journalist. Additionally, we hear a regular person named Jan talk about becoming the star of the movie at the end.
This documentary has an exciting change of procedure in the trip to Caracas, the capital of Venezuela. In that section, Alessandro Cecere, known as “El Sultan del Bitcoin”, and Juan Jose Pinto, the founder of Doctorminer, are interviewed.
3. hard money
Duration: 34 minutes
This movie is not just about Bitcoin; It’s about money. To understand the importance of Bitcoin, people may need a refresher course to understand what money really is. This documentary, directed by Richard James, is similar to the first few chapters of the book “Bitcoin Standard” by Saifedean Ammous, which shows short parts of the talks of some important Bitcoin philosophers.
The description of this movie states:
Watch the documentary “Hard Money”; Because by seeing it, you can answer these questions: Why was gold chosen as the best form of hard currency? What were the defects of gold? What is inflation and how does the government hide it? How did the disconnect between the dollar and gold break the connection between the market and reality? What is high and low time preference? What creates a deficit-reserve banking system? Why are bond issuers printing new money?
4. Bitcoin is the wealth of the new generation
Duration: 15 minutes
The film “Bitcoin is the wealth of the new generation” directed by Matt Hornick and narrated by Tomer Strolight is another Bitcoin-centric film that we will examine next. Although the film uses some of the techniques of the documentary genre, it is not a documentary at all. Also, this movie is the only option among these 5 movies that did not receive positive feedback from the Bitcoinist website; But what is the reason?
The following description may reveal the story of the film; So, if you want to watch the movie first, don’t read this description. In Bitcoinist’s review of the movie, we see this quote:
The movie “Bitcoin is the wealth of the new generation” has a semi-fictional story and its own genre. This film has used high-quality natural footage to produce a professional montage; But this method did not work and the result of the film was not satisfactory. Is the script to blame? Maybe! This movie depicts a beautiful future that every Bitcoiner dreams of; But it does not explain how we can achieve it. In other words, the movie overused the ever-present theme that “Bitcoin is going to solve all problems.”
Duration: 21 minutes
Lynchpin is about amateur basketball and its only connection to Bitcoin is that it was financed and produced by Swan and Bitcoin Movie Club. Did this happen just once or is it the beginning of the next time? There are rumors that these companies will finance several chapters of this story. Lynchpin, directed by Mike Nicoll, was supposed to be a TV show; Therefore, such an ending seems likely.
Bitcoinist introduces the film as follows:
Etop Udo Ema, the founder and CEO of the Compton Magic and the most influential basketball power in America, is the linchpin star. Before the Corona pandemic, this charismatic character receives an offer that he cannot refuse. The entire short film revolves around his attempt to change sponsors and create a league. This flow leads Itap to Roc Nation and its manager Jay Z, who happens to be Puma’s creative director. It seems that the whole company was on the right track and no one could have predicted this unfortunate event (Corona epidemic) that affected the whole world.
More than a decade has passed since the birth of Bitcoin, and during this time, its price has grown significantly; For this reason, this digital currency has become an important investment option for many people. Due to the increasing acceptance of digital currencies and the special attention of users to Bitcoin, this digital currency has become the focus of filmmakers’ attention, and many of them have produced films and documentaries about Bitcoin.
In this article, we have introduced 5 films about Bitcoin, which have been discussed from various aspects such as the environmental consequences of Bitcoin mining and the financing of projects related to green energy and the review of different people’s views about this digital currency. We suggest you watch these movies during the holidays; Especially if you are one of those people who want to learn the bit alphabet.
