College Student Commits Suicide After Mounting Cryptocurrency Loses


A 20-year-old college student from Busan committed suicide this week after losing nearly 200 million won in cryptocurrency.

Korean media reports the student had dropped out of college and was working as a social worker, but he was suffering from depression and insomnia due to the recent drop in cryptocurrency in the country.

He was found lying on his bed Thursday with a plastic compression pack around his head when found by his mother in his apartment. A 13L gas tank of helium was also found in his room according to local media.
