The film many folks in the bitcoin community have been waiting for has finally been released for viewing.
The film, The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin, encountered major delays in getting released (the film was screened at the Tribeca Film Festival this year, though), particularly on the front of distribution, but now, things are gravy.
The film will be available on a slew of different platforms that include Vimeo, Amazon, and iTunes. In addition, subscription services like Comcast and DISH Network (which recently began accepting bitcoin) will have the film available for viewing.
As I’ve noted in my review of the film, the film follows Dan Mross, brother of the director of The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin. His journey includes bitcoin mining and interviewing familiar and notable entities in the bitcoin community.

Those entities include the Winklevoss brothers, Erik Voorhees, Mark Karpeles (the disgraced CEO of Mt. Gox), Charlie Shrem, and plenty more.
Of course, it’s interesting because the price of bitcoin has seemingly fallen and fallen since earlier this year, but the community remains optimistic.
Certainly though, I feels it’s worth the watch, particularly if you’re an enthusiast.
