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.
