The Bitcoin Kid: Inside a Crypto-Heist

1 x 44 HD
Broadcaster:  CityTV

This is the story of the largest individual cryptocurrency theft - $46 million USD from a Bitcoin billionaire - all masterminded by a 17-year-old kid.


In 2009, in the wake of the financial crisis, a new monetary system was created. It was called cryptocurrency, and represented a new financial frontier. Just like old currency, however, this new enterprise created opportunities for criminality. Hackers are moving quicker than the law, exploiting vulnerabilities in this fast-moving system and stealing unprecedented amounts of money. All from the comfort of home.


The Bitcoin Kid follows a thrilling three month manhunt, revealing human vulnerabilities in crypto-security and serving as a cautionary tale for digital investments.
