    In 2014, a new cryptocurrency was unveiled: OneCoin. At mass events resembling religious gatherings, charismatic founder, Ruja Ignatova, claimed it was on course to become the world’s biggest digital currency and would change the world. In fact, it was a giant ponzi scheme.
    In this film we gained rare and exclusive access to close friends and colleagues of Ignatova – the people who knew her best – who tell the unbelievable story from the inside.
