As fans anticipate a possible new season of Netflix crime drama StartUp, star of the show Adam Brody took to Reddit to answer some questions, sharing details about the hardest part of filming.
StartUp follows a group of strangers as they form GenCoin, their own cryptocurrency.
The idea is formed by Izzy Morales (Otmara Marrero), a programmer who wants to use it to change the world.
With plans to take it off the ground, Izzy was put in touch with local banker Nick Talman (Adam Brody).
He liked the pitch and decided to invest $300,000 into GenCoin, however this is where the issues arose.
Unbeknownst to Izzy, Nick decided to use his dad Andrew Talman’s (Carl Weintraub) dirty money to invest in the company.
As Andrew laundered money for a Ronald Dacey (Edi Gathegi), leader of a local Haitian gang, he got into trouble after Ronal found out.
Andrew wanted to hide it from dirty FBI agent Phil Rask (Martin Freeman) who wanted a cut.
Fans watched as what started off as an innocent innovative idea became a complicated web of greed and deceit.
The actor said: “Cryptocurrency is such a huge concept. I read as much as I could. I think the fact that’s there’s no governing authority to it and it constantly evolves is trippy.”
This was the reason why Izzy wanted to start GenCoin, knowing it was unregulated by the government, she wanted for it to become a digital currency so that people without access to banking practices could legally use GenCoin.
However, with the complicated twist and turn of events for the friends, there’s no telling if Izzy will eventually reach her goal, that’s if she does at all.
