Kate Winslet will produce and star in a new movie about OneCoin – the notorious Ponzi style crypto scam that defrauded investors of some 5,15 billion USD.

‘Fake!’ will be produced for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and will be directed by Scott Z. Burns, who also will write the script.

OneCoin, which was founded in Bulgaria back in 2014, worked as multilevel marketing scheme, where investors were offered a “revolutionary” new crypto currency - OneCoin, which was advertised as “Bitcoin killer”. In just a few years the OneCoin promoters attracted over 5 billion USD from investors all over the world - form the U.S. to China and from the UK to Uganda.
