The CEO of First Meta, a Bitcoin Exchange was found dead recently. It is thought that Autumn Radtke may have committed suicide although this cannot be said with total confirmation.

Autumn Radtke’s tragic death from unknown causes has shocked the Bitcoin empire as well as her family and friends. She was an American citizen who headed First Meta, a Singaporean digital currency firm. A high level investigation is underway and some hard facts regarding her meaningless death will come to the light of day soon. 

Radtke was just 28 years of age at the time when she passed away. Words of condolence were emblazoned on First Meta’s website. According to these sad lines they were “shocked and saddened by the tragic loss”. When the police department was contacted they didn’t respond. 

"The First Meta team is shocked and saddened by the tragic loss of our friend and CEO Autumn Radtke. Our deepest condolences go out to her family, friends and loved ones. Autumn was an inspiration to all of us and she will be sorely missed," stated on First Meta’s website.

Autumn Radtke had come to Singapore two years ago. She had worked for Geodelic Systems and Xfire before that. The company of which she was to later on become CEO was a nexus or hub of sorts. Virtual legal tender was bought and sold on the platform. 

The company had even received funds amounting to $466,000 from a Californian concern. But the recent failure and bankruptcy of Bitcoin may have had lot to do with Radtke’s untimely death. 

There were so many lives connected with the accumulation of the crypto-currency. And when it went down obviously there must have been so many who were left holding their heads in their hands in a state of utter depression. But the facts still don’t add up. 

Bitcoin is a digital dogma that has no CEO so far. It is just a fact of cyberspace and has no existence outside of the sphere where anything is possible. Now since it is not a company how can we say with surety that the CEO of Bitcoin committed suicide. Suicide is a complex decision taken by a person on the verge of total mental annihilation. 

Radtke hardly seems to be a candidate for such an extreme action. The police are probing into the matter and soon the truth will be out in the open for all to gaze at. Until then all such talk as to the cause of her death is mere speculation.
