The documentary’s viewers, particularly those who are familiar with the entire saga, connected with the conspiracy notion about the founder faking his death.
“Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King” was released by Netflix on 30 March to tremendous enthusiasm. The documentary is based on the unexplained death of the founder of now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange QuadrigaCX.
The exchange’s founder supposedly died while on a trip to India. He also stole the location of the keys to crypto wallets containing $250 million in bitcoins.
Unofficial investigations and several conspiracy theories followed the founder of QuadrigaCX’s unexpected disappearance/death. The Netflix investigative series tries to dispel some of the mystery behind the high-profile cryptocurrency case that continues to confound people to this day.
The crypto swindler documentary is inspired by the investigative thriller “DON’T F*CK WITH CATS,” and audiences appeared to be anticipating the premiere. As one Twitter user put it:
“I watched it tonight in the gym. I’m barely halfway through, but already it’s insane: the biggest red sign is feigning death with Crohn’s disease, seriously?! You do not need to be a physician to understand that Crohn’s disease rarely results in death!”
Another voiced a similar sentiment when he stated:
“What a bizarre tale. “Explore that grave!”
A user who claimed to have used the QudrigaCX in the past stated that he saw suspicious conduct early and withdrew money in time after seeing the documentary. He stated:
“I traded a substantial amount of coins on their exchange. However, I became suspicious of the manner deals were being handled one day. After establishing bloomberg systems for AIMCO, I had a solid idea of how these exchanges could operate. I immediately extracted all the coins.”
While the investigative documentary is highly interesting and does not require any prior understanding of crypto, many in the crypto community who have closely followed the narrative or have been impacted by the exchange’s demise found it quite satisfying.
Mike Oltoff, founder and CEO of Coin card, said that several of his friends, including himself, had cameo appearances in the documentary.
It’s strange to watch so many of my friends in a documentary, but they all did an outstanding job! Surprisingly, I made a cameo appearance in this documentary as well, in the backdrop of one of the Patryn recordings.
The conspiracy theories concerning the founder faking his death in order to steal millions of dollars’ worth of cryptocurrency from clients resonated with the majority of viewers.
