Ignatova is still at large. Fraudulently claiming OneCoin was cryptocurrency, she defrauded customers. Market mechanisms could determine the value of OneCoin, according to prosecutors.

According to the indictment, customers believed that up to 50,000 OneCoins per minute were being minted at one time.

Prosecutors declared OneCoin’s increasing value false and said it was simulated by software.
