It mainly followed the typical structure of a multi-level marketing scheme, but with a touch of cryptomonry.
Basically, OneCoin is a Ponzi scheme promoted as cryptomoney. By the offshore companies based in Bulgaria, OneCoin Ltd (registered in Dubai) and OneLife Network Ltd (registered in Belize).
In particular, Ruja Ignatova promised that OneCoin was the next Bitcoin. Although it was not backed by a Blockchain or a network.

The judicial drama
In short, on 7 May Ignatova was accused of electronic fraud, securities fraud and money laundering. But she has not been seen since 2017. Since a secret U.S. warrant was issued for her arrest.
Similarly, her brother Konstantin Ignatova, an executive with OneCoin, was charged with the same charges in March. He has since agreed to testify against his sister.
In general, most of the OneCoin leaders have now disappeared or been arrested. Indeed, Sebastian Greenwood was arrested in 2018, as was Konstantin Ignatova in March 2019. He pleaded guilty to money laundering and fraud charges.
Notably, Jen McAdam founded a support group for those affected. Indeed, McAdam, along with her friends and family, invested and lost over $300,000 before she learned that her server was not a Blockchain. Therefore, he could not create crypto-money.
