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.
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.
We have thousands of wallet addresses known to belong to @QuadrigaCoinEx and are investigating the bizarre and, frankly, unbelievable story of the founder's death and lost keys. I'm not normally calling for subpoenas but if @rcmpgrcpolice are looking in to this, contact @krakenfx— Jesse Powell (@jespow) 3 февраля 2019 г.
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.
