Netflix has launched a new docuseries that will look into the demise of a Canadian crypto platform after its CEO died. The documentary, titled Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King, will be released next year, in 2022. The story is based on the demise of QuadrigaCX, a Canadian cryptocurrency exchange, following the murder of its CEO Gerry Cotten. The 30-year-old died in a strange manner in Jaipur, igniting a big scandal in India.
Netflix made the announcement on Twitter, where it detailed a number of future projects on its platform.
According to Netflix, the documentary about Cotten and what was formerly Canada’s largest Bitcoin exchange platform will follow a group of cryptocurrency investors who lost a total of $250 million (approximately Rs.1,843 crores) after the crypto mogul’s unexplained death.
According to BNJ Crypto News, Cotten’s death in December 2018 was caused by Crohn’s illness, an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Investors at Cotten’s Bitcoin exchange platform QuadrigaCX later discovered that their funds had been stolen since only Cotten had access to the company’s cold storage wallet.
Lawyers for the persons who lost money have sought permission to exhume Cotten’s body in order to determine his identity as well as the reason for his death in detail.
Luke Sewell, renowned for films including No Place to Call Home (2016), Generation Gifted (2018), and I Dream of Variety, will helm the Netflix documentary that will chronicle the events surrounding the controversy (2008).
This forthcoming documentary has sparked a lot of talk on Twitter.
