‘He put his in body and soul to the company, in each stage of its growth. He led by example with his intellect, generosity, humility, diligence and creativity,” the company said in a statement.

Mushegian had a history of mental health problems and his family does not believe there was any wrongdoing.

In a tweet hours before his death, he said: “The CIA, Mossad and the pedo elite are running some kind of blackmail ring to catch sex trafficking from Puerto Rico and the Caribbean islands.”

‘They are going to frame me with a laptop planted by my ex [girlfriend] that he was a spy. They will torture me to death.

However, some in the cryptocurrency community in Puerto Rico are suspicious of the timing of his death.

He was discovered by a surfer in the water at Ashford Beach on October 29, fully clothed and with his wallet in hand.
