Synopsis[4]

Filmed in Miami, New York, Melbourne, and Toronto the documentary Bitcoin: The End Of Money As We Know It traces the history of money from the ancient world to the modern trading floors of Wall Street. The documentary exposes the practices of central banking and other financial actors who brought the world to its knees in the last crisis. It highlights 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 commercial banks when they make loans. 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 crypto-currencies spark a revolution in how we use money peer to peer? Or is it simply a new tool for criminals and the next bubble waiting to burst?
