The recent deaths of Vyacheslav Taran, a 53-year-old cryptocurrency billionaire, and two others who were pioneers in the crypto field have raised the question of who is killing the crypto millionaires and whether they were all just accidents.
Are some of the most significant pioneers in the cryptocurrency sector under attack? Vyacheslav Taran, a 53-year-old cryptocurrency billionaire, is the third well-known figure to pass away unexpectedly in recent weeks, as we recently learnt. Are all three of them connected by some sort of common factor, or is this just one big coincidence? Although there is still a lot we don’t know, it is intriguing to notice that all three of these fatalities occurred while the cryptocurrency community was experiencing an unusual level of turmoil. The collapse of FTX has put the entire industry’s legitimacy in jeopardy, and many people who were previously crypto millionaires on paper have lost everything.
The helicopter in which Vyacheslav Taran was travelling crashed into a hillside, killing him. He was a very wealthy man thanks to his work in the cryptocurrency industry, having co-founded the trading site Libertex.
Unfortunately for Taran, his life is now over, therefore he won’t be able to spend any more of that money.
A Russian billionaire has become the third top cryptocurrency trader to die suddenly in recent weeks.
Vyacheslav Taran, 53, the co-founder of trading and investing platform Libertex, died after his helicopter mysteriously crashed in a resort town near Monaco.
The vehicle plummeted on November 25 afternoon, killing Mr Taran, who had lived in Monaco for a decade, as well as a veteran pilot.
The dangers of riding in helicopters have been amply demonstrated throughout the years.

Also noteworthy is the fact that “another passenger allegedly cancelled at the last minute“…
The finance titan was flying with an experienced pilot, 35, from the city on the shores of Lake Geneva after another passenger allegedly cancelled last minute.
The single-engine light helicopter Eurocopter EC130 operated by Monacair collided with a hillside near Eze village at around 2pm, Monaco Life reported
We’ll hopefully learn who the “other passenger” was who abruptly decided against going.
That might offer us some insight into what truly happened.
In the end, this might just have been a horrible accident, or Taran might have been the victim of an attack unrelated to cryptocurrency.
This could be yet another case of wealthy Russians being targeted since a number of prominent Russians have recently passed away.
We just don’t know.
But what is certain is that an another prominent cryptocurrency company co-founder was unexpectedly found dead last week.
According to reports, Tiantian Kullander, 30, passed away abruptly while he was sleeping.
Tiantian Kullander, co-founder of Hong Kong-based digital asset company Amber Group, died unexpectedly last week in his sleep. He was 30 years old.
The company confirmed the news in a statement, saying that Tiantian, also known as “TT,” had “passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on November 23, 2022.”
Again, it is entirely possible that this death had nothing whatever to do with the cryptocurrency industry.
Numerous young people who appeared to be in good health died throughout 2022, and Kullander may soon be added to that list.
But like Taran, Kullander was a key pioneer in the cryptocurrency industry.
“Besides co-founding Amber and building it into a multi-billion fintech unicorn, TT sat on the Board of Fnatic (one of the world’s most successful e-sports organizations) and founded KeeperDAO (the first on-chain liquidity underwriter) before giving it back to its community,” the company’s statement continued. “TT was a devoted husband, a loving father and a fierce friend. His passing is a tragedy and our thoughts and prayers are with his family. He is survived by his wife and their beloved son. We kindly request that you respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
Two is a coincidence, but three indicates a trend, so the saying goes.
Nikolai Mushegian, 29, was discovered dead on a beach in Puerto Rico on October 28.
In this specific case, Mushegian actually predicted his own death…
A brilliant young cryptocurrency pioneer named Nikolai Mushegian tweeted on Oct. 28 that intelligence agencies were going to murder him — and was found dead on a Puerto Rico beach hours later.
“CIA and Mossad and pedo elite are running some kind of sex trafficking entrapment blackmail ring out of Puerto Rico and Caribbean islands,” Mushegian, a developer of blockchain-based decentralized finance platforms who wanted to end global banking corruption, tweeted at 4:57 a.m. “They are going to frame me with a laptop planted by my ex [girlfriend] who was a spy. They will torture me to death.”
Naturally, we are unable to prove that mysterious forces were responsible for his death.
All we know is that his body was discovered in the waves on Ashford Beach just hours after he sent his ominous tweet. He still “had his wallet on him,” which is interesting.
The 29-year-old then left his $6 million beach house in the luxe Condado area of San Juan, Puerto Rico, for a walk. A little after 9 a.m., a surfer off Ashford Beach, a spot considered so rife with riptides that local hotels warn against ocean swimming, discovered Mushegian’s body in the waves. He was wearing his clothes and had his wallet on him, sources told The Post.
If some thugs had grabbed him on the sand, they undoubtedly would have taken his wallet.
However, it doesn’t always imply that he was murdered.
He might have simply fallen into the water and drowned after going swimming, or he might have killed himself.
Those who knew him say that he struggled with very serious mental health issues, and it seems that he also used drugs heavily.
A person who knew Mushegian very well for years until they had a falling-out two years ago said that the developer was “very very smart” but also suffered from extreme bouts of paranoia.
“He had mental problems,” said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “He saw a psychiatrist at times. He smoked a lot of pot. A tremendous amount.”
In the end, we might never be able to determine whether the three deaths are somehow related.
We talked about the mysterious deaths of the crypto billionaires being found dead in an another article.
But the fact that all three of these men were major industry pioneers is intriguing.
And now they are all gone.
Life is incredibly short, and for some people, it ends much sooner than they had anticipated.
