Indian hospital describes death of QuadrigaCX CEO Gerald Cotton

Crypto CEO of Crypto Exchange Quadriga Filed Will 12 Days Before his Death Rick D

The protection means that for 30 days, QuadrigaCX is safe from creditor's lawsuits, giving it time to obtain the funds that were supposedly locked after its CEO Gerald Cotton unexpectedly passed away on December 9. The client claims to be owed about $560,000 from Quadriga - "one of the largest individual affected users" - according to the affidavit filed in a Halifax court on February 5.

"BCSC does not regulate it".

The circumstances surrounding Mr Cotten's death - and the way he conducted his business from the couple's home in Fall River, Nova Scotia - has led to a flurry of speculation and allegations in internet chat rooms, The Canadian Press reported. According to the alert, even if a platform calls itself an exchange, it may not be trading or selling securities.

"The CSA continues to urge Canadians to be cautious when considering buying crypto-assets through trading platforms", CSA spokeswoman Ilana Kelemen said in an email on Thursday.

The crypto community, in general, is treating Cotten's death with skepticism.

Court documents attached to the will include a statement of death from the J.A. Snow Funeral Home in Halifax, dated December 12, which says Cotten died in Jaipur on December 9.

On Tuesday, the company said it was granted creditor protection in the Nova Scotia Supreme Court as it tries to sort out its financial mess. All they need to have is some money to charm the government employees who issue the death certificate.

The CEO of Canadian cryptocurrency firm QuadrigaCX spent a day at the Fortis Escorts hospital in the city, before dying of a cardiac arrest on December 9, 2018. Spokesperson for Fortis Escorts Pragya Sharma confirmed his admission and death at the hospital. After a series of cardiac arrests he was declared dead the following evening, his wife at his side. Cotton had complained of watery stools, vomiting, cramps and abdominal pain. The patient had a history of Crohn's disease and was on monoclonal antibody therapy. Cotten was in the company of Jennifer Kathleen Margaret Robertson, his wife, when he was admitted.

Back in India, Rajasthan police's NOC (no-objection certificate) to Robertson on December 10, 2018 raised several doubts. But new findings suggest that QuadrigaCX did not have a Bitcoin and Ethereum cold wallet.

Meanwhile, industry critics have come forward to say the QuadrigaCX debacle has proven to be a major embarrassment for Canada's cryptocurrency industry, which includes more than a dozen exchanges across the country.

Earlier previous year, Quadriga was experiencing difficulties accessing CA$21.6m of its funds, when the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) froze five accounts belonging to the exchange's payment processor, Costodian Inc., and its owner, Jose Reyes.
