Jesse Powell Invites Canadian Police to Iran Bitcoiner’s Lesson
Tidbits is a collection of talks from the cryptosphere. Jesse Powell is offering to assist the Canadian police in investigating the death of Quadrigacx CEO Gerald Cotten as well as the movement of funds. Cdaemon, an Iranian redditor teaches the r/btc network how to keep his crypto safe.
A helping hand
Jesse Powell, Kraken CEO has offered to help the Royal Canadian Mounted Police investigate Quadrigacx CEO Gerald Cotten’s death and the loss of his private keys. Powell continued to say that Kraken knew thousands of Quadrigacx’s wallet addresses.
Cotten’s death elicited mixed reactions. Some people believe Cotten actually died while others believe he faked his death. “I am Nomad,” a commentator, pointed out that death is common among the backwoods Indians. Powell dissatisfied by this response, and was still suspicious of Quadrigacx’s problems with crypto withdrawals and fiat in the month prior to Cotten’s passing.
Ken A, a Twitter user, posted a video in which he showed how a person could easily buy a fake death certificate from India for only 25,000 rupees (450). Powell was shocked at how easy it was for him to get an official-looking, yet fake death certificate from India.
It is so much work. Hopefully, the paperwork will be available.

Although many redditors sympathize fully with Cdaemon they also question why he would want to keep his cryptocurrency on an Exchange and not in his wallet. One commentator, pyalot said that there are many mobile, paper and desktop bitcoin wallets. Cdaemon incorrectly claimed that these options were not available back in 2017. Cdaemon was corrected by Pyalot who explained that the mantra of “not you keys, not your Bitcoin” is true.
Cdaemon further down the thread argued that he could not access online wallets due to them adhering to U.S. Sanction Laws back in 2017. Cdaemon argued that he could not access online wallets as they were subject to U.S. sanctions laws in 2017. Maeler responded by arguing that there is no U.S. ban on wallets, and Cdaemon could easily have downloaded and used the Bitcoin.com account.
