Jordan Fish, popular known as CryptoCobain on Twitter, closed his direct mail on the 6th of December. The prominent crypto influencer closed it due to an unfortunate event. The event is based on a crypto trader who asked for the influencer’s financial help before committing suicide.
How trader reached out to Jordan before his death
The crypto enthusiast with over 180,000 followers explained that he would close his DM following the sad incident where the trader he chatted with committed suicide. He complained of people’s persistent threats in his direct mail, requesting 0.2 BTC or they would commit suicide. The developer could not confirm if the suicide was real but reported that the deceased’s partner messaged him of the death. Apart from being interested in crypto, the influencer also works in a bank in the UK.
CryptoCobain has also been seen announcing another death through his handle. He reported that his friend Ben, who was in Thailand, died. The deceased was known to be prominent on various platforms before his death. Jason informed the public that his friend had died in his sleep and provided evidence of both of them knowing each other through a picture.
He complained that some of the direct mails he got were in the form of harassment. Another tweep affirmed the deceased’s handle as @Edgeoverevent, which he shared to public view. The identified handle has several tweets from months ago with the handler writing about his frustration financially and other difficulties he was facing at that time. Edgeoverevent complained of his frustrations when he reached out to crypto experts like @Crytobain for help, but his requests were not met.
The deceased’s handle was also laced with some suicide undertones, and the influencer was mentioned predominantly in his tweets. The posts went on with continuous threats of suicide before it ended with an announcement of his death. The handle thanked the developed for listening and talking to the suicide victim.
How suicide threats led the developer to close his DM
The mysterious account also put in place a Bitcoin address, with an address in CryptoCobain’s name. The account attempted to scam users by promising to double BTC sent to his Bitcoin address. Overtheedge’s address is a replica of the scam address. The fake Twitter handle insulted himself and claims that Edgeoverevent was the scam account’s handler to get BTC transferred to his account.
The Twitter influencer announced that he had seen several suicide threats and requests for financial help. He explained that the deceased had been seeding him DMs up to six months ago, complaining about losing life savings through greed, and he threatened to commit suicide if he was not helped. The trader described himself as too emotional and stupid, resulting in his loss of money.
Many claims are unsure how Cobain was to help the people threatening suicide because some posted their disbelief in cryptocurrency, and others wanted to trade. The influencer, however, believed that the suicide was real. His followers complained of the suicide threats and assured Jordan that their financial problems were not his business. Users urged others to use suicide hotlines when threats come up.
