"CEO of Bitcoin" dies in #Thailand. Head first into a sign pole, no helmet.

PHUKET: An Australian expat in Phuket died in a motorbike crash early Thursday morning. The body of Adam Tepper, 34, was found in Sai Yuan Junction on Wiset Road below a destroyed traffic sign. The motorbike Mr Tepper was riding was about 30 meters away. “Mr Tepper was not wearing a helmet and struck his head on the sign – he died instantly,” said Capt Thada Sodarak of the Chalong Police. “I believe he was moving very fast at the time of the crash, as part of the sign pole was buried a meter underground, and it was pulled out by the impact.” Mr Tepper’s body was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital.
