The Rise and Fall of Mt. Gox: The World’s Largest Bitcoin Exchange #Documentary

The Rise and Fall of Mt. Gox is a #documentary following the most prolific bitcoin exchange ever.

Mt. Gox is a story for the ages. Beginning in obscurity, rising to prominence, and falling down in epic fashion, there are few stories that can equal that of Mt. Gox. How could the world’s largest bitcoin exchange, handling over 70% of the world’s bitcoin transactions fall apart?

What led to Mt. Gox’s demise? And what ramifications does it have for us? Is buying bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies safe? And most importantly: can this happen again?

In this documentary, we’lll discover how Magic the Gathering, eDonkey 2000, Napster, and Kazaa all had pivotal roles in creating the greatest bitcoin exchange at the time. We’ll also discuss Jed McCaleb and Mark Karpeles, the two most interesting characters from Mt. Gox itself.
