Nikolai mushegian death
He went for a walk shortly after his social media post in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where he owns a $6 million beach house.
A surfer discovered Mushegian’s body off Ashford Beach hours later.
According to the New York Post, he was dressed and had his wallet on him.
Mushegian was a co-founder of the cryptocurrency lending platform MakerDAO.
He attended Carnegie Mellon University and was involved in several crypto projects.
According to the Post, one of his main goals was to bring the world a more pure form of banking and finance.
According to sources close to Mushegian, he was “very very smart,” but he also suffered from paranoia.
Nikolai mushegian mental problems
“He had mental problems,” the source told the Post.
“He saw a psychiatrist at times. He smoked a lot of pot. A tremendous amount.
“Some of his paranoia was based on fact,” the source added.
“He’d discover things. He knew things. Nikolai got bored a lot with the mundane of life. He’d go after things, constantly putting himself in weird positions.
“It wasn’t for the money. He was interested in why things were the way they were and the corruption behind it.”
According to the source, Mushegian had a gun collection that included long guns, handguns, and rifles.
“He liked guns and he knew he wanted to protect himself,” the insider said.
“Maybe he knew too much or he was going to expose someone. He said exactly what was on his mind. He had no filter.”
Some close to Mushegian, including cryptocurrency investor Michael Terpin, told the Post that they don’t believe his death was accidental.
Others, however, believe the death was a suicide attempt.
A source told the Post that Mushegian had “stopped talking to people and gotten very reclusive.”
“I think his mental health was getting worse and he wasn’t asking for help.”
Mushegian’s death is still under investigation.
