The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin

  • Brett King Oct 1, 2014

    The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin is a movie that does a great job of explaining exactly what its title suggests - why Bitcoin is where it is today. It proposes that Bitcoin's journey has just begun, and that the fundamental building blocks of Bitcoin will be far more disruptive in their component form for a long time to come.

    “Rise and Rise” has had several screenings – it made its initial premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival – and Mr. Mross has been making  the rounds. He was in Boston earlier this week, where the film was shown at the Sibos financial conference. The reactions have varied greatly, he noted. While the crowd at Tribeca was full of bitcoin enthusiasts, the bankers at Sibos watched with a far keener eye, he said. “They were watching it more as an information piece.”

    The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin is an incredibly immersive trip into an invention with a history that feels like it was right around the corner and potential to shape the immediate and not so immediate future in unpredictable ways.

    Imagine if someone had been there making a documentary on Tim Berners-Lee before the world became familiar with the World Wide Web or on Mark Zuckerberg when he was first developing Facebook. Thanks to Mross' film, which will prove to be a really valuable historical artifact one day, we'll never need the bitcoin version of "The Social Network".
