  Crypto currency stunt on Everest linked to Sherpa death A promotional stunt by an Irish tech company to bury $100,000 worth of a new cryptocurrency at Everest's summit has been linked to the death of a Sherpa guide, the company said Saturday. Social networking startup Ask.fm has become embroiled in controversy after a Sherpa who guided four climbers sponsored by the company went missing near the peak's summit in mid-May. "We are now aware that one of the Sherpas who assisted our group amongst others, went missing during the descent," the company said in a statement.
