Join Jamie Bartlett, host of the hit BBC podcast and author of THE MISSING CRYPTOQUEEN, live in London as he discusses what Fortune have called ‘the largest financial scam ever’.

In 2014 a brilliant Oxford graduate, Dr Ruja Ignatova, promised to revolutionise money and make people rich in the process. She launched OneCoin, an exciting new cryptocurrency that she promised would not only earn its investors untold fortunes, it would change the world. OneCoin swept the globe - becoming one of the fastest companies to make $1 billion in revenue. By 2017, billions of dollars had been invested in OneCoin in hundreds of countries, but by the end of the year Ruja Ignatova had disappeared, along with the money, and it slowly became clear that her revolutionary cryptocurrency was not all it seemed.

The Missing Cryptoqueen is a modern tale of intrigue, techno-hype and herd madness that reveals how OneCoin became the biggest scam of the 21st Century.

Whether you’ve binged the podcast already, or are new to the wild world of OneCoin, join Jamie live to hear the incredible stories behind The Missing Cryptoqueen, and ask your burning questions.
