An Indian government-issued death certificate corroborates QuadrigaCX’s account of the passing of CEO Gerald Cotten in early December.
Cotten’s death is at the center of the turmoil surrounding the Canada-based crypto exchange, which went offline last week owing $190 million to its thousands of customers and is now seeking creditor protection in a Novia Scotia court.
Some customers and observers have expressed skepticism about reports of Cotten’s death, given that QuadrigaCX took more than a month to disclose it, that the disclosure followed a long period of fiat and crypto withdrawal delays, and that the company did not provide documentation of his passing.
But the death certificate, issued by the Government of Rajasthan’s Directorate of Economics and Statistics and obtained from a source involved in the events, indicates that Cotten died on Dec. 9 – the same date given in a Dec. 12 statement of death from a Halifax funeral home filed in the Nova Scotia court by his wife, Jennifer Robertson.
The death certificate, issued on Dec. 13, identifies him as “Gerald William Cottan”
QuadrigaCX said in mid-January that Cotten had died while traveling in India due to complications from Crohn’s disease. At the time, Global Affairs Canada – the government agency that manages diplomatic relations – seemed to confirm Cotten’s death, but only in vague terms.
Then came last week’s revelation that QuadrigaCX owes more than $100 million worth of cryptocurrency to its customers but is unable to repay because Cotten had sole control of the private keys connected to those funds. Amid the turmoil and uncertainty, various theories – including speculation that he had faked his death and fled with the exchange’s funds
Do you think he faked his death?

It's time for a quick look at Ethereum on a very long term weekly candlestick chart. If you swipe right, you will also see a mock up of the action of a traditional market within a bubble. It's uncanny how similar they both appear to be. Equally, it's worth noting that this market appears to have returned to the average pricing so perhaps it's now time to revert to a nice consistent uptrend, rather than the vicious volatility we have seen in the past? The $100 level should provide good initial support, with secondary support coming in at ~$85 - $90. •
É hora de dar uma olhada no Ethereum em um gráfico semanal de velas japonesas, em longo prazo. Se você deslizar para a direita, verá também uma simulação da ação de um mercado tradicional dentro de uma bolha. É estranho como eles são tão parecidos. Igualmente, vale a pena notar que este mercado parece ter retornado ao preço médio. Será que é hora de voltar a uma tendência de alta mais consistente, em vez da volatilidade que vimos no passado? O nível de US$ 100 deve fornecer um bom suporte inicial, com suporte secundário chegando a US$85 - US$90 •
Il est temps de jeter un coup d'œil rapide sur Ethereum un chart en chandeliers hebdomadaire à très long terme. En glissant sur la droite, on perçoit un modèle de l'action de marché traditionnel au sein d'une bulle. Les similitudes sont intéressantes. De même, il convient de noter que ce marché semble être revenu à la moyenne, de sorte qu'il est peut-être temps de revenir à un trend (bullish) haussière constante, plutôt qu'à la volatilité vicieuse du passé. Le niveau de 100 dollars devrait fournir un bon support initial, le support secondaire se situant aux environs de 85 et 90 dollars environ.
