Crypto Executive Dies in Helicopter Crash – Third Crypto Entrepreneur to Die Unexpectedly in Recent Weeks – zoohousenews.com

(Natural News) The cryptocurrency world is witnessing a slew of mysterious deaths these days, one of the most recent being the freak crash of a Russian billionaire’s helicopter near Monaco.
Vyacheslav Taran, 53, died after his helicopter crashed near the holiday resort of Villefranche-sur-Mer in good weather after taking off from Lausanne, Switzerland. Taran is the third such crypto entrepreneur to die unexpectedly in the past few weeks.
Before Taran’s death, 30-year-old Tiantian Kullander died “in his sleep”. And just before that, 29-year-old Nikolai Mushegian drowned on a beach in Puerto Rico shortly after he tweeted he feared he might be assassinated by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and its Israeli counterpart, the Mossad.
What’s even stranger about Taran’s death is that another passenger who was supposed to be on the helicopter canceled at the last minute. That, coupled with the fact that it fell to the ground in good, clear weather, strongly suggests foul play.
Taran co-founded the trading and investing platforms Libertex and Forex Club. Its pilot, a 35-year-old man who was also killed, is said to have been very experienced at flying the H130 single-engine helicopter.
A deputy prosecutor from Nice, France, visited the scene and reported that third party involvement in the accident could not be ruled out.
At least five crypto tycoons have died under mysterious circumstances since 2018
In previous years, several other crypto gurus also died under mysterious circumstances. Their names were Gerald Cotten and Matthew Mellon, both of whom died without sharing the keys to hundreds of millions of dollars worth of crypto wallets.
Cotten’s death was so controversial and mysterious that someone produced a documentary about it on Netflix. Some believe the whole thing was faked as part of a larger crypto scam.
“Among the odd circumstances of his early death was the fact that he signed a will just nine days before his death – raising suspicions that Cotten, CEO of Canada’s largest crypto exchange, forged the whole thing,” reads in To report.
“To date, $169 million is missing, leading investigators and victims to wonder if he orchestrated the mystery and pocketed the funds. Some investors have even called for his body to be exhumed to prove it’s real.”
Mellon, the ex-husband of Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon, reportedly suffered an unexpected heart attack while preparing to check into a drug rehabilitation clinic in Mexico.
If both Cotten and Mellon really died as claimed, then that makes at least five crypto top dogs who haven’t been with us since 2018.
Regarding Kullander, he co-founded Amber Group, a crypto trading platform that was recently valued at $3 billion. On November 23, Kullander died “unexpectedly in his sleep,” according to a company statement.
Singapore-based Amber Group called Kullander “instrumental in the founding of Amber and a pillar of our success.” However, the company did not disclose where Kullander allegedly died.
“He put his heart and soul into the company at every stage of its growth,” the company said in a statement.
Kullander has also traded with Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs.
Going back to Mellon, the guy once told Forbes that the world of crypto is “scary and dark” and “anti-American.” He held hundreds of millions of dollars worth of Ripple (XRP), which he claimed is “pro-America, pro-business and pro-bank.”
“Something strange happened to all of his cryptocurrency and his family cannot locate it,” read a statement from Mellon’s family after the death.
