• Ruja Ignatova, the Crypto Queen, has been missing for five years and is currently on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list
• A luxurious London penthouse apartment was advertised as for sale on the market, which has led many to speculate that Ignatova is organizing the sale from underground
• Senior prosecutor Gerald Ruebsam expects that the funds from the sale of the London penthouse may one day be used to repay the victims of OneCoin
Ruja Ignatova, the founder of OneCoin and self-proclaimed Crypto Queen, has been missing for five years and is currently on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list. Ignatova presented her company, OneCoin, as a profitable competitor to Bitcoin in the expanding cryptocurrency sector. However, in October of 2017, she disappeared from public view and it was soon revealed that her company was a massive $4 billion Ponzi scheme.
Now, news about the sale of a posh London penthouse has hogged the headlines and many believe that it is connected to Ignatova. The luxurious apartment, located in the Kensington district of London, was listed for sale at $15.5 million, but the price has since been lowered to $13.6 million. It’s possible that Ignatova is organizing the sale of the penthouse from underground and that the proceeds will be used to repay the victims of her scheme.
Senior prosecutor Gerald Ruebsam has commented on the situation, stating: “It’s not clear yet whether money will go to OneCoin investors, we have to wait and see how things develop.” He went on to add that authorities are hoping to track down Ignatova and find out exactly where the money from the sale of the penthouse is going.
At the moment, Ignatova’s whereabouts remain a mystery and it is unclear how much money she has been able to accumulate over the past five years. Nevertheless, her case serves as a reminder of the dangers of investing in cryptocurrencies without doing the proper research. It’s important to remember that cryptocurrency investments can be extremely risky and that it’s important to always be aware of potential scams.
