“Daniel Mross is a 35-year-old computer programmer from Pittsburgh who lives a busy life. Along with balancing work, his marriage, and his kids, Daniel spends much of his time actively involved in all things Bitcoin. After discovering Bitcoin in 2011, his love and obsession for the crypto-currency was born, revealing an uncharted world of new possibilities for him to explore.
With Daniel as our guide, THE RISE AND RISE OF BITCOIN takes us on a journey through the rapidly growing world of Bitcoin, following the stories of entrepreneurs and start-ups that are helping shape the new financial frontier. The film looks at the competitive mining market and the various subcultures within the Bitcoin community and encounters a variety of characters each with strong opinions about Bitcoin’s social and political impact as an open-source digital currency. Will the rise of Bitcoin bring a monetary paradigm shift that will forever change the world?”
Honestly, if you are a Bitcoin enthusiast, or would like to learn more about Bitcoin’s different aspects, The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin is a must-see movie. Whether you go and watch it in a theatre, or purchase the on-demand version really doesn’t matter. Just watch it!
In closing, I want to present you with a statement from the movie’s director , Nicholas Mross :
“I first became introduced to Bitcoin in 2011 when my older brother told me he was beginning to mine these “decentralized digital tokens” on his computer. The idea was so revolutionary, and the possibilities so limitless, it was only a matter of time before I caught the Bitcoin bug myself.
I began filming his fascinating hobby, and it soon progressed into something bigger than we both ever imagined. One person’s story led to many more, and every week, new exciting events were unfolding in front of the camera lens. I’m so proud of this film and the way we were able to capture the early history of this world-changing technology, and the entrepreneurs fighting to make it a reality.“
