Banking on Bitcoin

Postby cmiller17363 » Sun Dec 17, 2017

I watched this documentary on netflix last night. It was interesting and gave good background on Bitcoin. It shed light on many things that I have heard of, but didn't necessarily have in depth knowledge of. :thumbup:

I've seen this one as well. SilverDoge mentioned it in the podcast.

Banking on Bitcoin

Bitcoin is the most disruptive invention since the Internet, and now an ideological battle is underway between fringe utopists and mainstream capitalism. The film shows the players who are defining how this technology will shape our lives.
I'm clearly not very bright.

Fringe utopists. I like the sound of that. The lunatic fringe, as the Red Ryder song goes.

To bad you've got to buy or rent it.

“Rationality belongs to the cool observer, but because of the stupidity of the average man, he follows not reason, but faith, and the naive faith requires necessary illusion and emotionally potent oversimplifications which are provided by the myth-maker to keep ordinary person on course.”
