It appears bitcoin’s recent turmoil has claimed its first life.
Autumn Radtke, a 28-year-old American CEO of bitcoin exchange firm First Meta, was found dead in her Singapore apartment on Feb. 28.
Local media are calling it a suicide, but Singapore officials are waiting for toxicology test results.
Radtke formerly worked with Apple and other Silicon Valley tech firms on developing digital payment systems.
Radtke’s death brings the number of questionable financial sector deaths this year to eight.
A cause of death in Crane’s case has not be determined until a toxicology report is complete, according to a spokesperson for the Stamford detectives division.
The report is expected within two weeks.
