With their startup now in the hands of the Russian Mob, our unlikely trio, Izzy Morales, Ronald Dacey, and Nick Talman, reinvest in their partnership and launch an exciting new endeavour, a darknet prototype called Araknet. But as their decentralized network begins to grow, so too does the peril, the corruption, and the moral turpitude. As our heroes attempt to stay alive long enough to triumph, the sophomore season of StartUp poses the all-important question, what is the cost of ambition, and reveals the frightening lengths one might go to achieve ultimate success.
