‘Questionable’ Death Prompts Call to Exhume Quadriga CEO’s Body
Skepticism around the demise of Canadian cryptocurrency exchange founder Gerald Cotten just won’t go away.
The “questionable circumstances” behind the death of QuadrigaCX’s chief executive last year in India at 30 led lawyers representing customers of the collapsed trading platform to request on Friday that his body be exhumed.
QuadrigaCX shut down in January, weeks after Cotten died while on his honeymoon, leaving some 76,000 users out of pocket for about C$215 million ($163 million) in cash and cryptocurrencies. Odd details surrounding his death and the mystery of what happened to clients’ Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, has fueled speculation and conspiracy theories on internet bulletin boards on whether he’s actually deceased.
