A group of entrepreneurs put together an initial coin offering for a company named Centra, but it's a scam.

"Bitconned" is a shining example of how far a con artist will go to make a buck. With its lack of regulatory oversight, cryptocurrency is a wild west of scam artists and grifters, epitomised by the main character in this production. It's astonishing to see that he has no remorse at all for what he did, and no care for the people's lives he turned upside down or ruined. Just when you think the story couldn't possibly get any weirder, it takes it to another level, all the while showcasing that crime really does pay. Printing money.
