According to BTCmanager, former colleague and friend of the Canadian exchange QuadrigaCX Gerry Cotton, Adam O'Brien, said in an interview: "As far as we know, Gerry holds $100 million to $200 million in funding. So much money. It often makes people do something crazy. I think Gerry is aware of this, and he even revealed 'somewhat worried about what will happen.'" In addition, O'Brien also said that investors have a high probability of not getting back to themselves. The money is because the way Bitcoin is designed is "unable to recover once the private key is lost."
