Three cryptocurrency billionaires have mysteriously died in the past month, leading many to believe that they were targeted. This theory is largely based off of one of the victim’s tweets just days before he was found dead.
On October 28th, Nikolai Mushegian, a cryptocurrency pioneer and cofounder of MakerDAO- a blockchain-based decentralized finance platform, tweeted that he believed intelligence agencies were going to murder him. He tweeted at 4:57 a.m., writing, “CIA and Mossad” and pedo elite are running some kind of sex trafficking entrapment blackmail ring out of Puerto Rico and Caribbean islands,”
He added: “They are going to frame me with a laptop planted by my ex [girlfriend] who was a spy. They will torture me to death.”
Shortly after 9:00 a.m., Mushegian’s body was discovered drowned in the waves near his $6 million beach house in San Juan, Puerto Rico where he had gone for a walk, as reported by the New York Post.Shortly after 9:00 a.m., Mushegian’s body was discovered drowned in the waves near his $6 million beach house in San Juan, Puerto Rico where he had gone for a walk, as reported by the New York Post.
It was revealed on November 23 that Tiantian Kullander, the co-founder of Amber Group, a Hong Kong-based digital asset company, had passed away in his sleep. He was just 30 years old.
Kulander’s company website published the news of his death “with deep sadness and a heavy heart.” Kulander had launched Amber in 2017 with fellow finance insiders who used to work for notable companies such as Goldman Sachs Group and Morgan Stanley.
Shortly before Kullander’s death, Amber Group had been valued at $3 billion and was seeking an additional $100 million in funds.Shortly before Kullander’s death, Amber Group had been valued at $3 billion and was seeking an additional $100 million in funds.

On November 29, it was reported that billionaire Vyacheslav Taran, 53 – the Russian founder of Forex Club and president of Libertex Group – had died after his helicopter crashed near the French-Italian border in Villefranche-sur-Mer.
In a statement, Taran’s business said: “It is with great sadness that Libertex Group confirms the death of its co-founder and Chairman of Board of Directors, Vyacheslav Taran, after a helicopter crash.”
Taran was killed while flying in an Airbus H130 helicopter from Lucerne, Switzerland to Monaco. The French pilot operating the aircraft also died in the crash, as reported by France Bleu radio network.
None of the crypto billionaires’ deaths appear to be linked, but they are all mysterious enough to raise a few eyebrows.
