Four crypto billionaire deaths stoke conspiracy rumors

A series of deaths have stoked rumors in the crypto community that something nefarious may be afoot.

Four crypto billionaires have so far died following the collapse of cryptocurrency exchange FTX, that run aground last year.

The first person to die was co-founder of MakerDAO Nikolai Mushegian, who was found dead on a Puerto Rican beach. He died hours after tweeting that intelligence agencies were after him.

The second person to die was Javier Biosca, who was under investigation for cryptocurrency fraud in Spain. He was found dead on November 22.

Amber Group co-founder Tiantian Kullander died shortly after on November 23, perishing in his sleep under suspicious circumstances.

Vyacheslav Taran, a crypto billionaire, was the next person to die on November 25 in a helicopter crash.

The exact circumstances of the deaths have been cleared by medical examiners, without any apparent signs of violence, but the fact that four big members of the cryptocurrency community perished in a rapid succession has been enough to send ripples across the community.

While the idea of intelligence services hunting down people and leaving them dead in public spaces appeals to some people, other conspirators suggested that many of these people may not have died at all.

Rather, they could have orchestrated their disappearances so that they could avoid the law or simply move beyond their crypto past or use the money they have accumulated.

The man in the spotlight right now is Sam Bankman-Fried, who has pled not guilty, to his purposefully running FTX into the ground.

The company collapsed amid revelations that it had squandered investor funds by allowing an affiliated company, Alameda Research, to use up to $8bn recklessly.
