The former crypto queen Ruja Ignatova has been in the media for years. The founder of the giant crypto fraud scheme OneCoin disappeared in 2017. Her brother Konstantin Ignatov briefly headed the OneCoin MLM scheme as CEO before he was arrested. He pleaded guilty to fraud and money laundering charges in the U.S. in 2019. Now rumors are surfacing that Ruja Ignatova would have been murdered in 2018 on behalf of a Bulgarian mafia boss.
Ruja Ignatova has been on the FBI’s Most Wanted list for several years. In this respect, her (acknowledged) death would be a relief for you and her friends.
The rumor is based on transcripts of an allegedly intercepted conversation by the former head of Bulgaria’s homicide squad, Lyubomir Ivanov. He was shot dead in Sofia in March 2022 at the age of 49. According to reports, Ivanov worked for one of Bulgaria’s biggest drug lords, Hristoforos Amanatidis, known as Taki. And Ruja Ignatova is also said to have been closely associated with Taki.
According to the circulated narrative, Ruja Ignatova has already been killed in Greece in November 2018 on the orders of Taki. The murder allegedly occurred on a yacht, and the body was dismembered and thrown into the Ionian Sea.
The drug lord allegedly wanted Ignatova’s disappearance to conceal his involvement in the crypto platform OneCoin. The killer is said to be a man named Hristo Hristov. He is already in custody in the Netherlands because he was caught with a large amount of heroin some time ago.
We don’t know if this story is true or if it was deliberately spread to divert attention from Ruja Ignatova. However, this conclusion would be obvious.
