Time moves faster in crypto. So this week we’re back with a bonus episode on all the lunacy that’s gone down since February.

"Crypto Crooks" is sponsored by Chainalysis.

We’d finished writing and recording this show by February 2023. But February and March were busy months for the Securities and Exchange Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice and the authorities of Montenegro. They’ve all been going after Do Kwon. And they’ve all had some very interesting successes. 

So, we’re back with a bonus episode. We break down everything that’s happened, explore what it reveals about Do Kwon, his empire and his collaborators, and explore the true extent of one of the most brazen cons in modern financial history.
