Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King is proof that the world of cryptocurrency is similar to the Wild West. The gripping new documentary follows a group of Bitcoin investors who lost their money after Gerald “Gerry” Cotten, the founder of the cryptocurrency company QuadrigaCX, died mysteriously.
His death sparked some serious conspiracy theories, the loss of $250 million, and an unofficial investigation into the nature of the virtual currency. The Trust No One trailer, which was released on March 9, aims to get to the bottom of the mystery.
A newscaster in the trailer says that “This is an astonishing story. Gerald Cotten passed away and he took the passwords with him. That means $190 million of customers’ holdings are inside, and no one can access them.”
A group of Bitcoin investors joins forces to form The Committee, a cyber-sleuth collective, in order to recover their lost funds. Today the film Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King is released. The documentary film about bitcoin scammer Gerald Cotten is now available to watch on the streaming platform.
When news of Gerald Cotten’s death from Crohn’s disease began to circulate after it was made public, investors who had been duped by Cotten began to question it immediately. The validity of the claim appeared dubious, especially when Gerald Cotten’s previous scams and money laundering business resurfaced upon further investigation.
When a journalist from a reputable news agency dug deep into the matter, it was eventually confirmed that Cotten had indeed died from Crohn’s disease in India. He traveled around the world and to India to put the matter to rest once and for all.
The medical facility where Cotten was admitted was discovered after extensive investigation and the doctor who treated him until his last breath was interviewed. The interview revealed that Cotten had Crohn’s disease and went into cardiac arrest three times before dying.
