A tad off-topic, ‘cause covering “””physical”” (not derivates) Bitcoin/cryptocurrencies for once.
I am submitting this documentary because it is nonetheless very entertaining and captivating. To note, there is a “behind the scenes” plot of a “trading robot” which may have accelerated the losses of clients’ deposits of this ex-leading dominant exchange. You shall have a good time. It remains perfectly finance related

Laetitia the forex trader was an actress hired on Craigslist
Guy de Chimay later got busted for RUNNING A PONZI SCHEME

he just plead guilty to four felony counts including grand larceny, scheming to defraud and forgery.
That whole story he gave about turning $2 million into $100 million for close friends and investors was total BS!

This is why Investimonials and Profitly are so important to this truly screwed up industry that will bust these criminals BEFORE they get on TV.
