If you’re convinced that your money is safe as it is, the award-winning film “Bitcoin: Beyond the Bubble” might have some news for you. Written and presented by Torsten Hoffmann, this thought-provoking documentary explores the history of money, from ancient bartering societies to today’s central banks and trading floors. In doing so, it reveals the practices of central banks and financial actors that led to the last global financial crisis.
Moreover, the film uncovers the government’s influence on the money creation process and its role in increasing inflation. It also exposes how most of the money we use today is created out of thin air by banks when they create debt. With an epic scope, Hoffmann’s documentary takes a deep dive into technological innovation and challenges our basic understanding of money. Finally, it raises questions that our modern world faces today, including whether Bitcoin can serve as an alternative to national currencies backed by debt, a way to fight inflation and government debt, or merely a tool for money launderers and criminals. Featuring extensive archive material and coverage from the early days of the crypto currency revolution in 2014, along with updated commentary from 2022, “Bitcoin: Beyond the Bubble” is the ultimate crash course on Bitcoin that you have been waiting for.
