Netflix reveals Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King, its latest true-life crime documentary. It follows a group of investors turned amateur detectives, who unravel the suspicious death of crypto tycoon Gerry Cotten.
Gerry Cotten, founder of Quadriga Fintech Solutions, the firm operated QuadrigaCX, the largest crypto exchange in Canada at the time.
After the death of Cotten due to Crohn’s disease in 2019, it was believed worth around $250 digital currency was inaccessible. His wife Jennifer Robertson reported the only person who knew about the password for QuadrigaCX’s offline crypto accounts was Cotten.
More than 100,000 clients who entrusted Cotten with their money were left empty-handed. Ernst and Young were able to recover only $46 million to repay the clients after Quadriga went bankrupt.
There are a lot of suspicions around the incident as QuadrigaCX’s suspected Ponzi Scheme after the discovery of fraudulent practices. While Cotten’s will, which was written one month before his death, mentioned he chose to leave all his assets to his wife Robertson.
Netflix will also feature many more crypto documentaries such as Tiger King Season 2, Bad Vegan, The Puppet Master: Hunting The Ultimate Conman, and Tinder Swindler, all true-crime series titles.
Netflix will premiere Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King sometime in 2022. Stay tuned to know more about the upcoming true crime titles.
