The Missing Cryptoqueen

Episode 3: More than just a coin

Sept. 26, 2019

In Spring this year, something unexpected happened. On March 6th 2019, Dr Ruja's brother Konstantin was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport and charged with money laundering and fraud in connection with OneCoin. Dr Ruja was also charged in absentia, and US authorities declared OneCoin a fraud. We thought this could be the end of OneCoin, and our search. It wasn't. Why?

The Missing Cryptoqueen is an eight-part series for BBC Sounds, with new episodes every Thursday.
