The founder of one of the world’s most popular online prediction markets and trading websites, Intrade.com, has passed away.

John Delaney died on Thursday while attempting to climb Mount Everest.  It was his lifelong ambition to do so, according to Intrade.com reps.

“His wife and children, plus all of the Intrade family, mourn his passing but know also that John always strove for the summit - be it on Everest or with Intrade. It is our goal to give his memory one of those wishes and will do all we can to ensure Intrade's continued success.”

Delaney’s body could not be retrieved from the mountain.

Intrade was started by Delaney in 2001.  It was acquired by TradeSports.com in 2003.
