Anyone heard of InitiativeQ?
Initiative Q is building a new payment network and giving away significant sums of their future currency to early adopters. It’s by invite only and I have a limited number of invites. My personal invite link:

Nice bit of psychological manipulation by them there.

CEO of QuadrigaCX cryptocurrency dies unexpectedly and takes all his company passwords to the grave.

:o

Sounds a bit fishy to me. Hopefully authorities will somehow be keeping an eye on that £190 million to make sure someone else didn’t know those codes too.

Should have written it on a post it and stuck it to his computer. This would never have happened.

If no-one can access the cold storage accounts, then three possibilities that immediately occur to me:

1. As written, the guy died and took his passwords to the grave = money gone for good.

2. Someone is lying about only him knowing the passwords and has seen an opportunity to pocket the lot with no-one the wiser

3. Someone stole the money and then had him bumped off with no-one the wiser.

Is the money still there? Schroedinger’s cryptocurrency.

Definitely fishy. The £190m isn't in his accounts.
"Its investigation has secured access to Mr Cotten's laptop but also revealed that the digital wallets had been cleaned out months before he died.
In a report on its discovery, E&Y investigators said they did not know what had happened to the bitcoins they expected to find in storage."
