Carl Erik Rinsch, the director originally tapped by Netflix (NASDAQ:) to helm the now-canceled series “Conquest,” has made headlines not for his cinematic work but for an astonishing financial play in the cryptocurrency market. After facing production challenges and disputes with Netflix over the show’s development, Rinsch diverted the project’s $55 million budget into through the Kraken exchange platform, netting a 575% return with a sell-off totaling $27 million.
The bold investment move came in the wake of creative conflicts that ultimately led to Netflix’s decision to cancel “Conquest,” as confirmed by Thomas Cherian of the streaming giant. The termination of the series marks a dramatic turn in events for both Netflix and Rinsch, whose financial success has been a point of discussion in an online exchange with a Kraken representative. In this conversation, Rinsch attributed his newfound wealth to the impact of cryptocurrency.
Beyond his crypto ventures, Rinsch has indulged in an extravagant lifestyle, acquiring several high-end vehicles including multiple Rolls Royce (LON:) cars and a Ferrari (NYSE:). His story underscores the volatile yet potentially lucrative nature of cryptocurrency investments, which have been known to yield significant returns for those willing to navigate its risks.
