On 22nd March, CCN reported that the mystery surrounding the disappearance of $190 million in crypto from Canadian exchange Quadriga deepened as it was revealed the surviving founder is a reported ex-con who served 18 months in a federal US prison for identity theft, bank fraud and credit card fraud; deported from the US to Canada, and legally changed his name twice, 6 years before he co-founded Quadriga.  When Gerald Cotton died this plunged Quadriga into chaos, as he was reportedly the only person holding the private keys to access the exchange’s $190 million in customer assets.
