Murder Suspicions Arise as MakerDAO’s Co-Creator Was Found Dead

Murder Suspicions Arise as MakerDAO’s Co-Creator Was Found Dead

MakerDAO's co-founder was found dead in Puerto Rico, according to local police reports.

The 29-year-old cryptocurrency developer, identified as Nicolai Arcadie Muchgian, died early Friday morning after being dragged by currents on a beach in Condado. The story takes an unexpected turn when you look at his tweets before the incident occured. His social media publications suggest there may be more to his death than what is publicly known.

MakerDAO co-founder dies after suspicious tweets

Muchgian’s mysterious death comes a day after he posted a tweet about human trafficking for sexual exploitation and extortion being carried out by the CIA, Mossad, and pedophile elites in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. “They are going to frame me with a laptop planted by my ex-fiancée who was a spy. They will torture me to death,” Muchgian stated in his Twitter account.

He has also tweeted several times about death threats and elaborate attempts by the so-called CIA and the aforementioned organizations to frame him. While it’s unclear what connection the cryptocurrency developer had with the groups in question, a tweet shared by his personal account says that he “is a threat to the central banking cartel.”

Let it be known that if I am somehow set up and framed or shot, it wasn’t through sophisticated actions, but from sheer perserverence by people with infinite time and money to waste” Muchgian wrote on Twitter in August.

Muchgian isn’t that popular, but he has made significant contributions to crypto

Although not much is known about Muchgian, especially within the cryptocurrency community, public testimonials and his personal website show that he has contributed immensely to several blockchain projects, some of which are still active and already mainstream, including MakerDAO and BitShares.

Six years ago, Muchgian played a fundamental part in preventing a catastrophic attack that could have disrupted the MakerDAO protocol in a similar way that “The DAO” was exploited, leading to the Ethereum hard fork.

The website also indicates that the cryptocurrency developer has about seven ongoing projects that are likely now on hold amid his demise. Some of the projects include Manaflow, described as “an alternative to sharding,” and Rico, “a fork of DAI with an original design for rate controller and reference price calculator.”
