QuadrigaCX co-founder was using a fake name? Previously convicted for fraud

Canadian cryptocurrency exchange QuadrigaCX has been making headlines over the past week for the unbelievable story relating to the death of the company's CEO, causing a loss of access to all customer funds. The CEO Gerald Cotten apparently passed away in December from complications related to Crohn's disease.

Speculation has been rife regarding Quadriga, who now owes its clients over $190 million in funds. 

The exchange has since gone offline and QuadrigaCX filed an affidavit by Cottens Widow, Jennifer Robertson.
