The cryptocurrency market has a steep learning curve. For anyone who wants to understand why companies, banking institutions, friends and neighbors are talking about crypto or why Bitcoin is the subject of so much volatility, suspicion and interest – all at the same time – there are a number of excellent documentaries.
These films also serve as inspiration for the early adopters who are asking themselves why they still believe in cryptocurrencies in the face of obstinance, market downturns, regulatory challenges and hacks.
The list walks every viewer through the resistance.
