Netflix Crypto Scam Documentary Provokes Wild Community Response

Netflix’s new crypto documentary titled “Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King” was released to much fanfare on March 30. The documentary is based on the mysterious death of the now-defunct founder of crypto exchange QuadrigaCX.

The founder of the crypto exchange is said to have died while traveling to India. Together with him, he took the whereabouts of the keys from crypto wallets containing $250 million worth of cryptocurrencies.

Unofficial investigations and numerous conspiracy theories followed the mysterious disappearance/death of QuadrigaCX founder. The Netflix investigative documentary aims to clear up some mystery surrounding the high-profile crypto case that still confuses many even today.

The crypto scam documentary is inspired by an investigative thriller in the vein of “DON’T F*CK WITH CATS” and people seemed already hooked on its release. One Twitter user wrote

“I saw it tonight at the gym. I’m only half way through it, but it’s already insane: The biggest red flag is faking death with Crohn’s disease, seriously?! You don’t need a doctor to know that Crohn’s disease rarely leads to death!”

Another spoke a similar and said

“What a crazy story. Dig up that grave!”

A user who reportedly used the QudrigaCX in the past claimed that he smelled fishy behavior early on and withdrew money on time after watching the documentary. He wrote:

“I had a lot of coins on that exchange. But one day I felt something strange about the way the transactions were handled. After setting up Bloomberg systems for AIMCO, I had a good feel for how these exchanges should work. At that point I took out all the coins.”

While the investigative documentary is quite captivating and doesn’t really require anyone to have crypto knowledge to understand it, many in the crypto community who have dealt with the story closely or were affected by the exchange’s failure found it quite satisfying.

Mike Oltoff, founder and CEO of Coincard claimed many of his friends made cameo appearances in the documentary, including himself

“It’s so weird to see a bunch of my friends in a documentary, but they all did a great job! Funnily enough, I also got into the background of one of the videos about Patryn in this documentary. †

The conspiracy theories about the founder faking his death to get away with millions of dollars in client cryptocurrencies resonated with the majority of viewers.
