“Bitcoin Explained” by Duncan Elms
Likely the best video about a currency you’re ever going to see. I’d like to see the Treasury Department try and come up with something this cool, not to mention straightforward and easy to understand (a quick PSA to file your taxes before you end up sharing a cell with Wesley Snipes). Even if you don’t have a great grasp on the technical nuances, a quick glance at Bitcoin Explained will give you a pretty good sense of the differences between Bitcoin and a fiat currency; the medium is the message, dolla dolla bill ya’ll.
This informative, very cool, piece of art was done by Duncan Elms, who specializes in titles design and infographic videos for television, organizations, and businesses.
If Bitcoin happens to come up at the bar this weekend, this video is your Cliff Notes - although it mentions that 1 BTC is worth $70, which is a couple months out of date. This week, Bitcoin saw a meteoric rise to an all-time high of $250, then in the span of 24 hours it fell to $100 before briefly recovering to $200. Protect ya neck.
