$500 Million In Ripple (XRP) Possibly Lost Forever After Billionaire Owner Dies Unexpectedly
The recent sudden death of Crypto Billionaire, Mathew Mellon, has raised questions about what happens to our crypto-assets when we die. Most of these assets are locked away in mobile apps, online exchanges and wallets and the occasional hardware wallet. Our wallet passwords, pass-codes, mnemonic phrases and digital keys are only known to ourselves. Perhaps we can live with the thought of only around $2,000 being lost when we die, but what if this amount is approximately $500 Million worth of Ripple (XRP)? Ripple is the 3rd largest coin according to market cap size. It is up 7.81% over the past 24 hours and is currently trading at $0.617138. It can be bought with fiat dollars at exchanges such as CEX.io and Changelly and it can be bought with bitcoin at exchanges such as Binance and Gate.io.
