Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thedailybeast.com: “Russian Crypto Billionaire Dies in Mysterious Chopper Crash ”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Russian billionaire has become just the latest cryptocurrency figure to die under bizarre circumstances in recent weeks. Forex Club founder Vyacheslav Taran, the president of the Libertex Group trading platform, was the sole passenger on a Monacair helicopter that crashed near the French town of Villefranche-sur-Mer over the weekend.

Taran, 53, had taken off from Lausanne in Switzerland en route to Monaco with an experienced 35-year-old pilot before the aircraft went down. The chopper crashed into a hillside in good weather, local reports said.

Adding to the mystery, the France Bleu network reported that another passenger had canceled at the last minute, though no details were immediately available on who that passenger was.

Curiously, one traditionally pro-Kremlin Russian news outlet reacted to news of Taran’s death with an article noting he had “enemies in Russia.”

“It is with great sadness that Libertex Group confirms the death of its co-founder and Chairman of Board of Directors, Vyacheslav Taran, after a helicopter crash that took place en route to Monaco on Friday, 25 November 2022,” Libertex, which bills itself as a leader in cryptocurrency trading, said in a statement.
