To be honest it shouldn't even be a secret, Luffy WILL die imo considering the fact that 10years of his life are gone through the hormone treatment by Ivankov.
Oda doesn't just come up with that without any reason behind it especialy since the downside got played on the storys main character Luffy.
Will he be PK by that time before he dies? I got the feeling that OP will end how it started.
That Luffy (refered to Gold Roger) will let people know before he dies that they should believe in their dreams and that the One Piece really exists. We will see a scene of many "new" pirates going for what Luffy will say and keep on with the age of pirates.
I am pretty sure he will Die after he found one piece. Mostly because every living being dies
Why should he die ?I think we'll see the end of this story with Luffy still alive and finally accomplishing his dream that is to become the PK and to find the great treasure One Piece .
Since there's no afterlife world where Luffy is able to come back from, he won't die - not even in the last chapter.
What's a rather more interesting part was the revelation on both Roger and Whitebeard becoming ill. Roger gave himself to the marines, Whitebeard decided to throw himself into one final battle. But I don't see Luffy getting anywhere close to that state as the New World Saga is the last one. There's not gonna be another time skip, so why should Luffy die at an age of 19 years?
So to clear things up. I made a joke because everyone knows that every human / living beeing has to die some day. (Old age and stuff).
I didnt mean that he will get a heart attack right after he will find one piece or something xD.
But to be fair. I could imagine that he could die at the end of the story Gold Roger style. But this is also very unlikely because Luffy and the others will find another answer to what to do with what the will found at raftel than Gold Roger.
The key to this is. Roger wass ill from the beginning of his journey to get One Piece, when he found it he hat barely enough time to change anything so he startet a flame amoung all the young pirates. now everyone is chasing after one piece, but only the worthy can get there.
I think luffy has enough time to change things after he found out what is on raftel. THats why its very unlikely that he will share the same fate as roger did.
If Luffy was to die just after finding One Piece, it would be a complete failure. Gold Roger has very likely created One Piece so that the next Pirate King could accomplish something he couldn't (because of his illness). The Straw Hat is the symbol of this burden passed from Roger onto the next generation.
So things will happen after it is found - think about Poseidon, think about Whitebeard's last words, think about the Revolutionary movement, think about the Void Century, think about the Ancient Kingdom. I'm sure everything is linked. To me, finding One Piece is going to create an historical change for the whole humanity - not simly granting Luffy wealth, fame and power.

Probably after. I've the same feeling.
He can't get old, He wont survive the big war after he finds Raftel and the secrets of the World Government.
But Oda could've simply made it that way: Ivankov explains how there's only a 10% chance that luffy would make it alive for this to create tension. But cutting 10years regardles if it's 10 years from now on or in a meaning towards his total lifespan, mentioning a downside like that if it doesn't affect luffy in any way later one makes no sense to me.
That's what is bothering me.
I always wondered about that I definetly believe he'd become PK first, though I don't think he'd die gold roger style. I always thought it'd somehow wind up bigger than that.
If we take what Iva said as foreshadow, I think Luffy might die sometime soon after he finds One Piece and becomes the pirate king. I don't think he'll surrender like Roger, but he'll probably go out fighting. If Iva was being too dramatic or Oda disregards that in any way, then I can see Luffy living for years.
I could imagine that Luffy contracts the same "incurable" disease Roger had but curing this disease and saving Luffy could be a way for Chopper to achieve his dream of being a doctor who can cure all diseases.
ONE PIECE does not end when u find one One Piece !!!! hope that answered ur Q. if u still think No it didn't. the answer is no.
