Adam Guerbuez, 43, was a self-described “spam king,” who is most well known for losing a lawsuit to Facebook in the amount of 873 million dollars.
Despite his checkered past, he was a prominent member of the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency community. In recent months, his name came up regularly in association with John McAfee and other cryptocurrency evangelists.
Details of his passing are not yet entirely clear, but we are told that it was of natural causes relating to a heart failure.
People loved to hate him, and he enjoyed that sort of notoriety. He will be certainly be missed in many online circles. What happened to his Bitcoin will probably remain a mystery forever.
