The American CEO of an exchange for the troubled bitcoin digital currency has been found dead after a suspected suicide at her home in Singapore.
Wisconsin native, Autumn Radtke, 28, was discovered inside her apartment on February 28 and officials in the South East Asian city state are now waiting for toxicology test results to determine the exact cause of death.
Douglas Adams, the non-executive chairman of First Meta confirmed that his colleague had passed away in a statement which said the company was 'shocked and saddened by the tragic loss of our friend and CEO Autumn Radtke.'
The death of Radtke is the latest piece of bad news to hit the crisis-ridden bitcoin currency following the collapse of the Japanese-based Mt Gox exchange last week after $400m went missing and the closure of the Flexcoin bank yesterday in Canada after computer hackers robbed $600,000.

I just bet the whole “Bitcoin” thing is another Ponzi scheme that’s started unraveling.
She committed suicide just like JFK committed suicide, and for the same reason.
I can’t even wrap my mind around “400 million dollars - here they are - here they aren’t”. I tried translating into chips and burgers. Now I’m hungry.
Radtke, that name sounds familiar, wasn’t there a Radtke involved with Acorn...
Okay conspiracy hat off...
My bet is she was Vince Fostered.
Well I learned that buying and selling “tulip bulbs” must be very serious business if you are willing to commit suicide over it...
Very prominent name in Wisconsin. Largely in real estate.
Is suicide contagious among bankers?
She bitcoined the dust.
John Freakin' Kerry is dead?
That explains a lot...
In other words, you think she was murdered because she was about to stop the high volume stealing and lying that was going on?
No more than bitcoin exschanges declaring bankruptcy.
400 million dollars
That was the price adder for the federally required pollution controls added on a refinery expansion I worked on a few years ago. Wave a pen, and $400 million gone.
Obviously she was depressed that despite being rich she could only get a boyfriend whose fashion sense included skinning small animals and wearing them on his head.
I wonder how much the bitcoins in my pocket are worth now!
“ponzi scheme!” —old people shriek that.
Fiat currencies are how governments CONTROL PEOPLE.
Lessay someone gave people —as in the ENTIRE POPULATION OF EARTH— a way to get totally around that.
HOW BADLY would gummint goons want that someone to go away?
Less than Vince Foster, more than Vince Foster, or much, much more?
The answer is obvious.
Is that Richard Branson she’s with?
If you have 2 bitcoins, you can always rub them together and play pogs...
A CEO of a currency exchange at 28?
This is looking more and more like a highschool project like business club or something where they make lamps and sell them for profit?
Bitcoin seems more like Enron energy credits or whatever they were.
Who’s the girl on the left?
The ponzi scheme is unraveling.
Sure looks like it to me.
From a little more than three months ago. A little prediction from you-know-who.
Didn't even the British king at the time get caught up in that frenzy?
Who has the list?
You are 'suicided'.
Well that is not that far from the norm any more...
Bill Gates was CEO of Microsoft at age 20
Steve Jobs was CEO of Apple at age 21
Lawrence Page was CEO of Google at age 25
Mark Zuckerberg was CEO of Facebook at age 20...
this one is kinda easy for my conspiracy hat:
A digital currency challenges the world banks. It’s laughed at at first. Then, just as soon as people begin to take it seriously, the major exchanges get hacked by unknown groups, the money is stolen and the principals start “committing suicide.”
Lesson learned: The banks will never allow for something like this to occur. Not now. Not 1,000 years from now.
I think you may be correct.
Sure looks like him
as if our own fiat money wasn’t virtual enough, they go and invent bitcoins!! Imaginary currency purchasing more imaginary currence, we have gone mad.
http://sg.linkedin.com/pub/autumn-radtke/6/21/183 Check out this woman’s resume’? Talk about a light weight, what credentials did she have?
Created out of thin air and disappeared into thin air.
A blind man saw this coming.
That's Richard Branson. Her former employer at Virgin Charter. Not her BF.
Also found this in an article about this gal:
"A few weeks ago, the Crypto community at large, was also shocked with the all too sudden death of Mikhail Sindeyev aka thecoder. Mikhail Sindeyev was just one year younger than Autumn Radtke at the tender age of 27. He passed away due to a stroke, as relayed by his department at MSU in Russia:
Mikhail Sindeyev, researcher of our lab, has died February 14, 2014 from stroke at 27. He was one of the most talented graduates of our laboratory and active participant of many research projects. In May 2013 he successfully defended his PhD thesis Research and developement of video matting algorithms. Our sincere condolenses to his parents. We will deeply miss him.
Damn, beginning to suspect that computers and money are a pretty lethal combination. Of course it wouldn't cross my mind at all that perhaps young computer whizzes are too easily manipulated by covert government agencies with promises of grand wealth and are too naive to realize they are a dime a dozen and easily expendable. Naaaah...
She could suck a golf ball through a garden hose? Just speculatin'.
Kinda like oil. Quickest way to get yourself dead is invent an alternative fuel for the internal combustion engine.
