Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King is the latest doc to be released as part of Netflix's true crime category, alongside the likes of Inventing Anna, The Tinder Swindler, Bad Vegan and The Puppet Master.
Similar to Don't F**k With Cats, the doc follows a group of internet sleuths as they try to unlock a mystery – in this case, what happened to crypto multimillionaire Gerry Cotten.
Ever since Cotten's supposed passing in 2018, many believe that he faked his own death for financial gain.
Cotten was the 30-year-old founder of cryptocurrency trading platform Quadriga CX, who reportedly died from complications of Crohn's Disease while on his honeymoon in India.
His wife, Jennifer Robertson, revealed that her late husband was the only person who had the password to access investor funds of $250 million (£190 million).
Fans have been obsessed with the doc since its release on 30 March.
One user tweeted: "Gerry Cotten is alive man loool #TrustNoOne."
So it was Tindler Swindler, Anna Sorokin, the Bad Vegan and now Bitcoin Gerry Cotten all this damn fraud - idk who takes the cake— Silkysmooth (@Silkysm00th88) April 3, 2022
Another commented: "This Gerry Cotten documentary is inSANE. Deffo not dead tho."
Gerry Cotten of Quadrigacx is alive asf! Lmao— Alabi (@the_Lawrenz) April 2, 2022
A third added: "More dispatches from the Netflix Scammers’ Universe: finished #TrustNoOne last nite & Im w the twitter hive on this one: pretty sure Gerry Cotten is alive w a new face laid up on an island spending those ppl’s $190m."
However, another person argued: "I’ve been interested in the Gerry Cotten story for a while now. I’ve listened to multiple podcast series about the story, and just finished the Netflix documentary about it. What I want to understand is this: Why can’t it be plausible that Gerry scammed everyone *and* died also? Why are those two things always presented as mutually exclusive?"
Someone else wrote: "I don’t know if Gerry Cotten is dead or not."
The official synopsis for Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King reads: "There's only one rule in the world of crypto and bitcoin, trust no one. $250 million of bitcoin randomly disappears from QuadrigaCX, once Canada's largest crypto exchange, and the only person who can get it back mysteriously dies.
"Greed is a matter of life and death in this true crime documentary about the rise and fall of QuadrigaCX, the mysterious death of its founder Gerry Cotton, and the victims left behind to pick up the pieces."
