Another suspect in the OneCoin ponzi scheme will now be on trial, according to court reports released on Friday.
On Friday, marketing expert Carl Sebastian Greenwood, a consultant, and US law firm in Manhattan, Judge Edgardo Ramos, said the two sides are currently negotiating a prayer deal for Greenwood, who was convicted in 2018 of his involvement in the OneCoin Ponzi scheme.
Greenwood, who is currently facing five counts, including money laundering, fraud and conspiracy, was described in a previous civil case as “a public face of OneCoin”. Greenwood was responsible for marketing OneCoin and attracting new investments for the project, which ultimately brought billions of investors around the world.
The indictment alleges that Greenwood “made false statements and misrepresentations while persecuting people around the world […] and resulted in more than $ 1 billion in investor money.” Marketer worked outside of Sweden while working with OneCoin and was arrested by Thailand in 2018.
Greenwood is in Manhattan prison awaiting trial or potential deal. OneCoin’s brain, Rouge “Cryptoqueen” Ignatov, is still at large.
The OneCoin case and its aftermath has proven to be one of the most chaotic in cryptocurrency history, and a movie based on these events will be produced with co-star Keith Winslett, along with a separate BBC series in development.
Additionally, despite the ongoing lawsuit, Greenwood should consider himself lucky: Ignatova’s personal attorney, Mark S. Scott, was banned in November following a money laundering conviction, and two other marketers involved in promoting OneCoin were found dead after a report. Kidnapping in July.
