Crypto businessman Vyacheslav Taran, 53, founder of Forex Club and Libertex, passed away in a mysterious helicopter crash, as confirmed by the Russian embassy in Paris. The death’s location has been identified as Villefranche-sur-Mer, a remote resort town on the French Riviera.
Taran was based out of Monaco and has been reported to have links with Moscow’s foreign intelligence. He was flying from Lausanne, Switzerland, and was flown by a veteran pilot in a Monacair H130 helicopter. Reports have also claimed that the pilot, aged 30, was killed in the crash. No cause of the crash has been determined yet. The helicopter fell headlong on November 25.
The statement issued by Libertex read:
It is with great sadness that Libertex Group confirms the death of its co-founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Vyacheslav Taran, after a helicopter crash that took place en route to Monaco on Friday, 25 November 2022. The Board of Directors of Libertex Group and company employees extend their most heartfelt condolences and sympathy to the Taran family.
Another Crypto Mistery
Other Crypto Gaint Deaths
Vyacheslav Taran’s death is not the only one related to the crypto industry. Two other crypto titans have died in recent weeks. Tiantian Kullander, 30, died “in his sleep” the last week. Another millionaire, Nikolai Mushegian, aged 29, drowned on a Puerto Rico beach.
Tiantian Kullander was the co-founder of Amber Group, based out of Hong Kong and a digital asset company. He passed away on November 23.
Nikolai Mushegian’s death also raised eyebrows, as he died only a few hours after his tweet. The tweet mentioned that he knew that the CIA and Mossad, both America’s and Israel’s national intelligence agencies, were planning to kill him.
