    The wallets have been found to be empty.

    The discovery was made by a firm appointed to oversee QuadrigaCX after the death of founder Gerald Cotten.

    It expected to find the wallets full of C$180m ($137m; £105m) in crypto-cash deposited by the coin exchange's customers.

    ...

    Its investigation has secured access to Mr Cotten's laptop but also revealed that the digital wallets had been cleaned out months before he died.

    ...

    However, the company said, it found evidence that Mr Cotten had 14 other user accounts "created outside the normal process" that may have been used to trade on the QuadrigaCX exchange.
