I just watched ‘The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin’ and I think it’s well worth watching. It’s up to date with the current events in the Bitcoin world. It touches on it’s humble beginnings and stumbles along the way all the way to the shutdown of Mt. Gox and the arrest of BitInstant CEO Charlie Shrem on charges of money laundering for users of the digital black market known as Silk Road. If you use or are interested in Bitcoin I highly recommend this documentary. It is well made. It’s available through their website as well as iTunes.
