Though ‘Rise and Rise of Bitcoin’ has been screened privately on several occasions, it was not available for Bitcoin fans to watch it in public. Now, they can take comfort in knowing that the film is just about ready to make a public release early next month on October 10. Thus, the highly-anticipated Bitcoin documentary will finally be available for people to watch.
A lot of discussion has taken place in social media about ‘the Rise and Rise of Bitcoin’ and a lot of people showed their interest in watching the documentary. Several threads came in /r/Bitcoin wherein the posters wanted to know where they could watch the documentary. However, now, it will be available to the public for the first time.
Come October 10 and everyone who has not seen it can have an opportunity for the same. The makers of the documentary have been criticized as well for keeping the Bitcoin supporters waiting for long.
However, now that it will be available finally for the people, anyone can get it paying $12.99 which will be payable via iTunes, Bitcoin, and even by credit card. A lot of people had thought that it will be made available for free; however, now that the makers are selling it for a price, many of the Bitcoin supporters are going to feel disappointed.
Will Delay Affect the Popularity?
The film made it to this year’s Tribeca Film Festival as well and ran into some issues with distribution; however, it would seem as if things are on track for release. The documentary talks about Daniel, a 35 year old computer programmer from Pittsburgh who lives a busy life. He balances work, his marriage, and raises his three boys.
He spends much of his time actively involved in all things Bitcoin and after discovering Bitcoin in 2011, his love and obsession for the crypto-currency comes up. His story is one of exploration of the new technology and new possibilities as well as his journey through the rapidly growing world of Bitcoin.
Notwithstanding what even the strong supporters of ‘Rise and Rise of Bitcoin’ believe that it has been delayed a lot and should have come earlier. Delay has in fact reduced the interest among the people who wanted to watch it a couple of months ago. Now, it has to be seen what kind of response it receives from people.
