Wow....Do you actually believe this news? Man dies and takes account with him.

Recommended Posts

According to this website, this guy died and didn't leave his password and his family can't access his 1 billion XRP account.

https://www.tweaktown.com/news/62046/ripple-enthusiast-1-billion-xrp-dies-unexpectedly/index.html

I was thinking that he has given us all a great gift - a 1% coin burn. Unless they find the password.

So what do you guys think? Did he use an exchange or a ledger? I have planned for this scenario and i only have a rather small amount. Do you have a contingency plan? Or are you leaving a 1 billion XRP wallet tombstone for the rest of us to gaze at in awe?

His mistress has it and is already dumping. 

Jokes aside, cannot imagine that there’s no crypto will for a bloke like this. No way. Maybe there’s a, “do not disclose password until 2019” clause... ?

Someone that rich not only made a will out, but they surely would have included access details to the billion XRP.  It's not even a maybe.

I agree, however taking that much oxycontin is enough to forget who you are, let alone a password!

That one word (Oxycontin) prompted me to read the 2nd link in this thread.  Very interesting guy.  It could well be that his family have no access to his funds.

he almost cetainly had backup written copies of passwords or just paid a custody solution to do it all for him, or a combo of both

and there's no credible source i've found showing the xrp is lost, which just shows what disgusting lying scum these "news" sites are

If I recall correctly I read in one of the articles he apparently had his stash split up amongst many nanos locked up in back vaults across the U.S. If this is the case, whoever obtains access to these vaults through his Will, would then inherit the XRP assuming he stored the passkeys with them as well
