Users Sign A Petition To Kraken Exchange To Take Over QuadrigaCX

A petition has been established on Change.org website, signed to the co-founder and CEO of the Kraken exchange, Jesse Powell. Users ask him to take over the Canadian exchange QuadrigaCX.

Last week the QuadrigaCX exchange reported that the access to most of the funds was lost due to the death of the founder of the exchange — we wrote about in our weekly digest. Most users believe that it is a fraud and regard QuadrigaCX to be an “exit scam,” urging the representatives of the exchange to bear responsibility for the shutdown.

Co-founder and CEO of the Kraken Exchange, Jesse POWELL wrote on Twitter that Kraken would investigate the "the bizarre and unbelievable story'" of the founder’s death and the subsequent loss of the keys and control of the funds.

Users have established the petition precisely because of Powell’s activity and high interest in the investigation. The text of the petition reads as follows:

“This is a petition to Jesse Powell and Kraken to buy out Quadriga, honor it's users funds and to take over control of the Quadriga exchange. This would build tremendous brand loyalty and be a huge positive media story for Kraken. This would be the greatest feel-good story in Crypto and would boost Kraken's user base by hundreds of thousands overnight.”

At the moment there has been no official response from Kraken.
