The show is based on a real-life event that is called the “Shiny Flakes” case which took place in Leipzig in 2015. Co-creators Philipp Käßbohrer and Matthias Murmann told Variety in an interview “When we first heard about a young computer nerd successfully selling drugs for bitcoins in an Amazon-like store on the Internet, we were pretty excited immediately. When we started to dig into the story, we found out that the true story is actually not nearly as exciting as it seems at first.
They further said “Maybe he was a little bit too smart. If what he told the judge was true, then he worked alone the entire time and actually didn’t make any mistakes. Until he made one mistake, which got him arrested. His lawyer told the court: ‘It might as well have been shoes’ he was selling. The judge sentenced him to seven years in jail.” This is a compelling story and it was very popular. It had a rating of 8.4/10 score on IMDB which is quite good.
