Maybe a bit of comfort for anyone who is really concerned
I will post from it solely for the sake of getting this out, don't think it'll help much, but may be a bit. I have been around (crypto) since 2013, and at that time I was in Vancouver when the first Bitcoin ATM in Canada, as well as one of the first in the world - was installed in the waves atm. I bought some bitcoin for dirt cheap back then, which is long since sold and invested into other things. I met some very interesting people at the ATM though, and made friends quick. Soon I was invited to check out the Bitcoin Co-Op. A local spot with a bunch of enthusiasts. One of them was Gerry, Gerald Cotten - the one maaaany of you seem to have many theories on. Gerry was a young kid, maybe 19 or early 20s. Skinny, white, no muscle, but good enough looking dude with big wavy hair. Him and Michael - can't remember his last name, were working on Quadriga. Until this time, Gerry was a serial coder making a lot of different portal sites, one of which he was proud of was "cruise dude" a site with a bunch of tips on how to get deals on cruises, smuggle booze in through gift wrapped presents, etc... he made about $60 cad a month on this site. Gerry also had some odd health issues, He would have to travel back for doctors appointments and treatments when abroad. I never knew much and never asked, because we werent that close. Just acquanitinces within the community. Soon, Quadriga was launched. I was using CaVirtex - which was THE behemoth Canadian exchange at the time, and then Vault of Satoshi a toronto based exchange that was sooooo soooo good. Well, I put a couple bucks on Quadriga, and was one of their first clients. I've seen exchanges COME and GO over the years, and ALL the exchanges people thought would be around forever (btc-e namely) - have come and gone. Quadriga I always trusted, and never had an issue with. Recently Ive been travelling, and only really had some loose thumbs on this reddit to see all this shit unfold. I've got some cash on there, not a ton - but enough its gonna sting if I lose it. Yeah, I'm a bit worried. Moral of this post is that his health issues were real. Michael did depart several years ago, and Gerry and whoever the Quadriga team is have ran this exchange. Now that Gerry is gone, and I know no one who is at the helm - there is definitely cause for concern. Quadriga is likely contemplating the recoupment of trust after all this shit has went done, but they have been and could continue to be one of the premier and early days trusted Canadian exchanges. The amount of money they made and make in fees is insane, and the team would be silly to throw that all away. My gut tells me this could fall apart, but my hope tells me its too good for them to do that, and they will fix it. Its just gonna take time. SO - best thing to do? Treat all your money / crypto on or with Quadriga right now EXACTLY as you should be treating your money in crypto "like it's money I can afford to lose / already consider lost" - it's an investment. If it goes 100% south you know in your head thats a risk you were already willing to take. So unplug your worries, go do something else with your life and keep a distant eye on this for news or withdrawals to show up. The times I forgot about my crypto and left it, were the best. The times I kept an eye on it every day, caused the most stress and the most stupid moves. Alright, just wanted to post that and you guys can do what you like. Peace out!
Thought I'd mention it in case there were any Bitcoin enthusiasts on campus. (Yay if you are -- PM me if you want to grab coffee because Bitcoin/crypto is a pretty big hobby for me) $40 above market value though, so pretty shit rate for any amount larger than 0.1 BTC. Also, for the general public: Bitcoins are sometimes used for illicit purposes. If you see someone with lots of track marks or looks downtrodden, its probably a drug addict buying bitcoins to buy shit off some black market. I used to drink coffee at the first Bitcoin ATM in Canada (Waves) and constantly saw sketchy ass people walk in, try to avoid looking at the camera with their sunglasses and hoodie and insert a large amount of cash into the ATM before trying to skulk off thinking they were anonymous.
