Death of Gerald Kotten, CEO of QuadrigaCX
According to the document, Kotten was hospitalized on December 8th, 2018 at 9:45 pm IST (16:15 UTC) and died of heart failure at about 7:26 pm IST (13:56 UTC) on December 9th, 2018.
"On December 9, 2018, the patient suffered cardiac arrest, but was restored with CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). The patient's heart condition continued to deteriorate, and the patient suffered a second cardiac arrest at 6:30 pm [13:00 UTC] (...) the patient was declared dead at about 7:26 pm"
Recall that earlier the reliability of the fact of the death of Kotten was in doubt. Many famous people in the crypto-community have openly declared that the death of the CEO of QuadrigaCX has been fabricated. Today, the death of Kotten is at the center of many gossip and rumors associated with the QuadrigaCX exchange. As you know, the crypto-exchange closed last week, leaving thousands of wallets blocked.

Two separate documents published earlier: a statement of death (issued by JA Snow Funeral Home) and a death certificate (issued by the Department of Economics and Statistics of the Government of Rajasthan) confirm the information that Kotten died on December 9, 2018 in Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan.
QuadrigaCX management announced confirmation of the death of the CEO. At the same time, representatives of QuadrigaCX say that the exchange owes its customers about 250 million Canadian dollars (equal to 190 million US dollars) in both cryptocurrency and Fiat. On February 5, the court granted the QuadrigaCX petition and granted a 30-day term to restore access to crypto-wallets.
