Bitcoin is the most popular cryptocurrency right now and if you want to learn about it, a simple way to do so is to check out the best bitcoin documentaries to watch on Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime.

So what is cryptocurrency and why should we care? Well, cryptocurrency is basically a form of digital asset or digital money if you will. Bitcoin is not the only one — there are quite a few. However, bitcoin is right now the most sought after. Bitcoin is accepted worldwide as a medium of payment, but it is hard to keep track of as well. Right now, some speculate that sometime in the not so distant future, all physical money will be replaced by cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. On the other hand, many think it will eventually get shut down or die off. There are basically two ways you can learn about bitcoins or cryptocurrencies in general. Either you go to the experts such as these guys 10 Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Experts to Follow on Twitter and Facebook or you can watch bitcoin documentaries on Netflix or any other streaming media. A couple of amazing documentaries about bitcoin are Banking on Bitcoin on Netflix and The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin. Every best bitcoin documentary list will contain these names. However, there are plenty more that you can watch on various video streaming websites such as YouTube and Amazon Prime.

If you want to make some bitcoin yourself, then there are two ways you can accomplish that. Either you mine for bitcoin or you can also offer services and products online and charge bitcoin for them. However, that is a different topic entirely, and we do intend to cover that in a separate article.

The thing is, even though cryptocurrencies have been around for some time, they became mainstream only recently. Therefore, the number of documentaries on the subject is small. However, we did manage to find the best such documentaries thanks to IMDB, Netflix, YouTube and Amazon. We basically took a look at the list of available bitcoin documentaries on Netflix, YouTube and Amazon, and then went ahead and ranked the list based on the IMDB user rating and Amazon Prime rating. If enough people say that something is good, we have no problem standing behind the majority and often (but not always) it is the best way to do things. However, in this case, we think we’re pretty safe standing behind the majority. This is how we basically made our list, and we surely hope that you would enjoy going through our list as much as we enjoyed making it.

Let’s get right into the list of best bitcoin documentaries to watch on Netflix, YouTube and Amazon prime.

7. Bitcoin Gospel

Bitcoin Gospel delves deep into the concept of bitcoin and “how it will revolutionize the economy of the world.” It argues that although we say we have a global economy, there are severe limitations to the system right now. However, with the lawful use of bitcoin as the medium of exchange pretty much every limitation can be overcome. It goes into the details of how bitcoin works and how easy it is to learn how to use this amazing cryptocurrency. The documentary which ranks 7th on our list of best bitcoin documentaries to watch on Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime also talks about the negative side of using bitcoin as well. If the vision Bitcoin Gospel shares with us comes to fruition, there will be no need for a bank or any other financial institution to mediate any kind of transaction. The idea is really cool and pretty amazing if you think about it.
