QuadrigaCX - Gerald Cotten

QuadrigaCX’s court-appointed auditor has revealed the addresses for the cryptocurrency exchange’s offline Bitcoin wallets. The cold storage wallets are empty – aside from $400k worth in Bitcoin. The news comes after the exchange said that it owed customers about $134m worth of cryptocurrency. QuadrigaCX was one of Canada’s biggest cryptocurrency exchanges. Founder Gerald Cotten died as a result of complications of Crohn’s disease while travelling to India with his wife on December 9 2018.
There are calls from many to probe Cotten’s mysterious death. A death certificate issued by India, was quickly dismissed as “worthless” by QuadrigaCX customers who demanded to see Canadian documents. The Indian certificate had Cotten’s name spelled incorrectly, adding fuel to conspiracy theories.
