  • Ruja Ignatova, founder of OneCoin, vanished after defrauding investors of $4.5 billion, sparking speculation about her fate.
  • Despite extensive investigations, Ignatova’s whereabouts remain unknown, leading to theories about her possible demise.

The mysterious case of Ruja Ignatova, the founder of OneCoin and alleged scammer known as the “Crypto Queen,” continues to puzzle the world. Ignatova disappeared after swindling investors of $4.5 billion in what is considered one of the biggest cryptocurrency scams.

Despite extensive efforts to locate her, Ignatova’s whereabouts remain unknown, leading to speculation about whether she is alive or dead. The FBI has listed her as one of their top ten most-wanted fugitives, highlighting the severity of her crimes.

Recent investigations suggest that Ignatova may have had ties to Bulgarian organized crime, with her handler and physical security, Hristoforos Nikos Amanatidis, possibly involved in drug trafficking activities. These connections have fueled theories about the circumstances surrounding Ignatova’s disappearance.

One theory, supported by a BBC report, suggests that Ignatova was murdered in late 2018. According to the report, her body was dismembered and disposed of in the Ionian Sea, off the coast of Greece, on the orders of her protector turned aggressor, Taki.


However, the BBC could not independently verify this claim, and Ignatova remains on the FBI’s most-wanted list, raising doubts about her alleged death. The FBI typically removes individuals from the list only after confirming their death, adding a layer of uncertainty to the case.

Meanwhile, victims of the OneCoin scam have yet to receive justice, as those associated with Taki reportedly reclaimed properties in Dubai purchased with funds from the fraudulent scheme. The lack of closure for these victims underscores the ongoing impact of Ignatova’s actions.

As the mystery surrounding Ruja Ignatova deepens, authorities and the public alike continue to search for answers, hoping to uncover the truth behind one of the most infamous cryptocurrency scandals in history.
