Quadriga CX has still been marred by issues after the death of its CEO Gerald Cotton’s sudden death in December 2018. This threw the broker into whirlwind given that he didn’t leave a clue about the access codes to the exchange’s cold wallets. However, it effectively locks away close to $200 million investor funds in fiat and cryptocurrencies. The company is no longer accepting new clients or trades and has since taken its website offline as its management and the Supreme Court of Canada chart the way forward.
