7 movies of Bitcoin to see in quarantine
Bitcoin is still leading the way in all fields of our daily life. Not only in banking and finance, or the struggle against the centralisation with its background technology, the Blockchain. Also in the area of cinema and entertainment. Although it is true that the number of movies dealing with these topics is not so great. It is also reality that every time the interest for Bitcoin and the cryptocurrencies has been growing progressively. This has led to that we have more movies and series, following the growth of the interest. An interesting phenomenon that we can observe is that, while more old are the movies, series or documentaries, these touch on dark themes of Bitcoin and the cryptocurrencies, as their use for money laundering and buying drugs, in the so-called “Silk Route”.
