HALIFAX — The bizarre case involving the cryptocurrency firm QuadrigaCX is expected to return to a Halifax courtroom today.
The Nova Scotia Supreme Court has been asked to determine which law firms will represent 115,000 QuadrigaCX clients, who are owed as much as $260 million in cash and cryptocurrency.
The court-appointed monitor overseeing the search for the money said it recently found more than $900,000 in digital assets.
However, Ernst and Young also revealed that someone at QuadrigaCX “inadvertently” shifted about half of those crypto-coins into a site that is now inaccessible to the company.
The Vancouver-based exchange was shut down Jan. 28 after the sudden death of its CEO, 30-year-old Gerald Cotten.
He led his five-year-old virtual business from a home north of Halifax.
