Quadrigacx Withdrawals Processed Using Personal Funds During 2018

The widow of Quadrigacxs late CEO published a statement on March 13 that provides an update on the legal proceedings surrounding the exchange.

The statement reveals that Gerry Cotten was using personal funds to fulfill customer withdrawals during 2018 while the exchanges funds held with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce continued to be frozen.

While I had no direct knowledge of how Gerry operated the business, he told me that he had been putting his own money back into QCX to fund user withdrawals in 2018 while the CIBC money remained frozen, she said, adding I believe Gerry had the best interests of the business in mind, and cared for his customers.

Robertson states that following Gerry Cottens death, she arranged for the Companies Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA) process to begin by providing the initial funding and agreeing to act as a director of [Quadrigacx].
