Dead Man's Switch a crypto mystery (2021), 78 mins

Shells and coins were a reliable currency for millennia. Today, Bitcoin has replaced these physical means of trading with a new and highly irregulated system of cyber banking. Gerald Cotten was keen to take advantage of the opportunities provided by blockchain technology, as one of many young entrepreneurs willing to disrupt the status quo. In his role as CEO of Canada's largest cryptocurrency exchange, he attracted investors to the tune of over $200 million. His sudden and mysterious death in India, while on his honeymoon, was a culmination of a series of suspicious activities that ultimately left those investors empty-handed. Either their funds ended up in the digital ether or trapped in the deceased Cotten's password-protected accounts. Web forums produced a wild range of theories about his possibly faked demise and potential whereabouts, but director Sheona McDonald sticks to the facts to uncover the truth in this riveting 21st century crime caper.
