The year’s biggest blockchain mystery of lost funds of QuadrigaCX exchange is much similar to the mystery behind the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. However, the latest report reveals that the died CEO of the exchange, Gerry Cotton used to store millions of funds in multiple exchanges as a means of storage.

QuadrigaCX’s Ethereum Storage Funds

As per the report published on zerononcense which was curated by its CEO in collaborative information gathered from Jesse Powell from Kraken exchange and Taylor Monahan from MyCrypto. It reportedly reveals that Mr.Cotton possibly be storing significant funds in Ethereum (ETH) at Kraken, Bitfinex and Poloniex exchange. In fact, the analysis on transactions unveils that the almost 600,000+ ETH was transferred to these exchanges as a means of storage. This appears to be at the time when QuadrigaCX began operating ETH trading on its platform. Nonetheless, no other transactions after Dec 9 cannot be found with QuadrigaCX exchange account associated with these exchanges. A note from the report reads that;

Altogether, a cumulative 649,708 Ethereum was sent to Kraken, Bitfinex, and Poloniex directly by QuadrigaCX, which was worth a total of $100,490,150 at the time of transfer.

Furthermore, it believes that neither the CEO’s widow nor any person relating to the matter aware about Cotton’s act of transferring money to these exchanges – this made quite clear that except Cotton, no other person are and were aware of the funds concerning the exchange.

Nevertheless, the discovery of these fund made possible due to the fact that it had transferred to these exchanges – and author of the report presented it in collaboration with the founders of these trading platforms. Perhaps, funds beyond these exchanges such as ‘in any cold wallet’ or any reserve cryptocurrency’ cannot be discovered because no other person except Cotton knows this.

On top of all, its worth to note that the earlier statement of Cotton’s wife ‘Jennifer Roberston’ states that ‘Gerry Cotton may have stored some funds of exchange on other exchanges – which turned as the basis or findings for this report. It cannot go unnoticed that creditors are empty-handed after Cotton’s death and based on these findings, QuadrigaCX’s creditors are likely expecting a positive move from Kraken, Bitfinex and Poloniex exchanges to redistribute funds to them.
