Cryptocurrency firm CEO dies locking password to his $190 million assets

The owner of Canada’s largest cryptocurrency exchange has unexpectedly died at the age of 30, taking with him the only password for a digital account holding  £145 million ($190 million) of customers’ money. Internet forums began buzzing with conspiracy theories when Gerald Cotten, the co-founder and chief executive of Quadriga CX, was reported by his wife to have died in December.

Jennifer Robertson revealed on January 14 that her husband had died from complications related to Crohn’s disease on December 9 while travelling in India, where he was opening an orphanage. However, Mr Cotten appears to have failed to leave behind any note of a password or key to a digital “wallet” containing £145 million of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for 115,000 account holders.
