A developer who developed a virtual currency-based platform for the entertainment industry has died, his company confirmed.
Craig Smith, 58, was one of the founders of digital-currency company Discord, which was sold to Facebook in 2014 for $2.5 billion.
He also founded and co-founded the messaging app Telegram.
Smith’s death is the latest in a string of recent deaths in the virtual currency world.
In March, the Winklevoss twins, who are part of the Wink Fund, the venture fund that invests in cryptocurrencies, announced the death of two other people who had invested in the platform.
They declined to be more specific.
The twins say they are continuing to monitor the situation closely and are “totally committed to doing everything possible to support and care for the community.”
The Winklevii said they have no plans to divest the company or cease funding it.
