A Bitcoin pioneer who was believed to own over $1 billion in the cyptrocurrency and considered one of the asset’s larger single-holders, died off the coast of Costa Rica, apparently from  at Playa Hermosa de Garabito, Puntarenas, in Costa Rica. 

Mircea Popescu, a Romanian national, was known for starting MPEx, a bitcoin securities exchange, around the same time as Coinbase Global COIN, 4.05% launched.  Satoshi DICE, a popular gambling website that only accepted bitcoin, was listed on Romanian-based Mpex by Eric Voorhees.

The SEC would later go onto investigate the offering, claiming it was unapproved.

The news of Popescu's untimely death comes just days after another popular figure in the world of cryptocurrencies, John McAfee, died in a Barcelona prison from an apparent suicide.
