OneCoin more than deserves its place not only in The Coin Tribune’s Ponzi Forum, but also in Hollywood. A look back at the great episodes and highlights of a very real scam, before the film is released in theaters.
A Titanic star to tell the story of the OneCoin sinking
A film based on the events surrounding the scam OneCoin is currently in development, while the case is pending before the courts.
According to the site Deadline, Kate winslet reportedly signed on as an actress and producer of the film which is based on the unpublished work titled Fake!
The book was written by Jen McAdam and Douglas thompson : McAdam is one of the victims of the scam and will also be one of the film’s producers.
Screenwriter Scott Z. Burns will direct the film. Burns Is at the origin of The Report, a dramatic film based on the tortures of the CIA after September 11, 2001. He is also the director of Contagion who counted Winselt in its cast.
The pyramidal “Bitcoin future”
OneCoin was built according to the classic scheme of a pyramid of Ponzi. Founded in 2014 in Bulgaria by Ruja Ignatova, OneCoin promised its victims that the crypto of the same name would be the future Bitcoin (BTC).
Many observers and government officials subsequently discovered thatOneCoin had neither a blockchain nor a network.
Despite subsequent warnings, the popularity ofOneCoin continued to grow. McAdam, who set up a support group for the victims, revealed that she and her relatives would have lost almost EUR 250,000.
Investors put the total amount of damage at $ 5 billion. In May 2019, Ignatova had been charged with fraud and money laundering but has not been found since 2017.
His brother, Konstantin Ignatova, who was also one of the leaders ofOneCoin, was charged with the same charges. He agreed to testify against his sister.
In return, the latter will be prosecuted only for tax evasion relating to the case. However, he did not win by the exchange because he would then face a 90-year prison sentence.
Cryptoassets are highly volatile unregulated investment products. No EU investor protection. Your capital is at risk.
Ruja Ignatova, who is said to be protected by a wealthy and powerful Russian citizen, continues to mock American justice. It feels like we’re back in the days of the Cold War. It took a long time to put the OneCoin site out of harm’s way, it will take some time before the Cryptoqueen appears before the judges.
