You’ve probably heard of bitcoin, the cryptocurrency invented in 2008 that has grabbed headlines (and raised lots of questions) since. Well, meet GenCoin, the fictitious digital currency at the center of the Crackle series StartUp, which just hit Netflix this week.
It seems this tale of tech entrepreneurs and corrupt FBI agents has caught the eye of many viewers because once the three seasons of StartUp were uploaded to the streaming site, the series quickly jumped into the top ten. Check out the trailer below.
The official writeup for the series says, “When three unlikely business partners incubate their tech idea on the wrong side of the tracks, their fight to build a company is nothing compared to their fight to stay alive.” (Think Breaking Bad meets House of Lies).
We’ll be adding this to our must-watch list.
