These are powerful closing words to a documentary that will inspire you to question your understanding of money as we know it. Attributed to Satoshi Nakamoto, the enigmatic person or collective behind the creation of Bitcoin, it stirs our imagination. As technology disrupts more and more of the analog ways we've conducted our lives (from ride-sharing to social media to innovative apps), we start to wonder if Bitcoin may indeed disrupt our financial systems in the powerful way this documentary has laid out for us.

"BITCOIN: The End of Money as We Know It" is a reflective look back at our human history of monetary exchange, and does a great job of exploring the hows and whys of currency creation. Paired with an energetic music score and voice-of-god like narration, it will get you rethinking how the world may fundamentally shift yet again. It is impressive the way the film covers the span of thousands of years of currency history, a topic that could easily become technical gymnastics. At its high points, the doc's riveting intensity recalls earlier greats, such as Inside Job, about the financial crisis. Very educational and informative. Wish it were even longer!
