Nikolai Mushegian

Just a month before the untimely death of Crypto Billionaires Vyacheslav Taran and Tiantian Kullander, another crypto billionaire Nikolai Mushegian passed away. Mushegian was an early developer of Maker DAO. He was working to establish a financial technology to remove third-party involvement from monetary transactions.

Nikolai Mushegian went for a morning walk on October 28, 2022. He left his beach house in the posh locality of Condado, San Juan, and was found by surfers at the Puerto Rico beach. His body was reported to the local police and they pronounced him dead due to drowning.

The police denied any chances of homicide as there was no sign of violence or struggle on the body of Mushegian. The only thing out of ordinary was a laceration on his skull which could be caused due to the trauma of the ocean.

Mushegian had posted suspicious tweets before his death, claiming the CIA and Mossad are going to torture him to death. He said his ex-girlfriend was a spy involved with them and he will be framed due to a laptop planted by her.

Friends and acquaintances of Mushegian have suspected him to be suffering from paranoia and other mental illnesses as he kept a gun to protect himself from ‘evil people’. The police too haven’t found anything suspicious surrounding his death.

Are the crypto billionaires’ death connected?

The untimely deaths of three crypto billionaires’ while seem suspicious due to their common profession and close time of death. There hasn’t been any evidence found of third-party involvement. Police are trying to find a link connecting them but there seems to be none.
