|Investors To Lose $190 Million After Owner Of Cryptocurrency Company Dies by Ngincome(m): 1:07pm On Feb 05, 2019|
People who invested in cryptocurrency with QuadrigaCX will lose their money - nearly $190 milion - after the company's founder died without tranferring the passwords to anyone.
30-year-old Gerald Cotten, the founder of QuadrigaCX, Canada's largest cryptocurrency exchange, died last year in India from complications with Crohn's disease. Before his death, he had the only password to unlock the funds and didn't get to transfer that knowledge to anyone.
QuadrigaCX has lost nearly $190 million of their investors' money following Cotten's death as all efforts to get the passwords has proved abortive.

His widow, Jennifer Roberston, said in a statement that she has recovered her late husband's work laptop, but is unable to access it because she doesn't know the password. The company said they've hired a security expert to try to access the funds, but he has been unsuccessful so far.
The company is no longer accepting investments on their platform after it was put on pause by directors late last month.

This is completely understandable, considering the fact that he's just 30 years old.
I just hope the guy is really dead because it's not hard for Oyinbo people to do facial reconstruction surgery sharp sharp. I'm just here thinking out loud why a super rich Canadian would travel across the world to India for medical reasons.
