People were screaming for DNA verification and pictures of the body when this was fresh, it's funny that they waited all this time to do it.Bitcoiners, especially Canadian Bitcoiners, may be interested in this article from Vanity Fair, about the incredibly dodgy operation that was Quadriga. Amazingly, they got some approval from Canadian finance authorities and even tried to go public while not actually having an accounting system beyond Excel sheets on the boss's laptop. For $250 million in deposits and billions of dollars in trading traffic.
There is a podcast on this here, which goes into more details on some things, though I recommend reading both
There are some open questions from the podcast- the author of the article talks about Quadriga's whole system being run on tickets as if this is bad. A manual trading system isn't necessarily unviable if there are sufficient staff to execute trades during trading hours and tickets are satisfied fast, but it is suggested in the interview with Rich that the main criteria for 'ticket priority' near the end was whether people were complaining on social media.
The body of Gerald Cotten, Quadriga's CEO, is now being exhumed to see if he actually died in India or just ran an elaborate exit scam.
I think there are interesting questions raised about just how much he lost. I'd suggest checking the article and podcast out.People were screaming for DNA verification and pictures of the body when this was fresh, it's funny that they waited all this time to do it.
It wasn't an exit scam, Gerald embezzled the money and lost it to bad trades on other exchanges. If anything he's dodging criminal charges, but financial crimes might not be something to fake your death over when there's nothing to get away with. His supposed widow had her net worth stripped down to about $100k to avoid charges being placed on her for probably actually knowing about this shit despite claiming otherwise.
