Tyler Perry is known for bringing comedic relief to characters and situations that can be tough to navigate. This process is meant to make things that are hard to deal with more palatable. His character Madea is often the center of the comedy in Perry’s work.
Ironically, one of Madea’s many funny but memorable moments is centered around death. In one of Perry’s productions, the outspoken grandmother was confronted with the end of a loved one and boldly stated a phrase that had people in stitches but also had them a little confused.
“People dying that ain’t never died before.”
And while that statement doesn’t make much sense in a structured way, the theory behind it alludes to the unpredictable nature of death.
Although death is nothing new, the news of it still comes as a surprise. And when it happens back to back under unexpected circumstances like those of several leaders in the cryptocurrency industry, it makes you consider the validity of Madea’s statement. However, this is no laughing matter.
In recent weeks three wildly successful crypto leaders have all mysteriously passed away.
According to KCEN TV, three successful crypto leaders died within weeks of each other — Nikolai Mushegian, 29, Tiantian Kullander, 30, and Vyacheslav Taran, 53.
The shocking and uncanny news has sent the Internet into a whirlwind with conspiracy theories and demands for answers.
Taran’s death is the most recent of the tragedies, with reports stating he was the victim of a helicopter crash. Taran led the Forex Club, which experienced success and turbulence.
In 2018, the company was accused of ripping off investors.
And while his success in the industry was laced with a financial scandal, Taran’s death following that of Mushegian and Kullander led social media users to speculate that it was more than a coincidence.
It was reported that Kullander, the co-founder of Amber Group — based out of Hong Kong — died in his sleep with no reports of previous health issues.
Mushegian, the co-founder of the crypto-lending platform MakerDAO, reportedly drowned in Puerto Rico just hours after releasing a tweet that he believed the U.S. and Israeli intelligence agencies were planning to kill him.
A friend close to Mushegian told the New York Post that the billionaire had severe mental health issues and paranoia. However, this does little to explain the uncanny circumstances around his final actions and his death.
The occurrences regarding the crypto leaders are giving NBC’s “Unsolved Mysteries” vibes.
And while some are moving on with the bustle of the holiday season, many people are still scratching their heads wondering what all this means for the often volatile crypto industry.
