Kraken Co-Founder Comments on Binance Settlement: Game Becomes Fairer, Suggests Crypto Industry Self-Regulation

Jesse Powell, co-founder of crypto exchange Kraken, said that despite the U.S. Department of Justice’s historic criminal settlement with Binance and the SEC’s just-filed new lawsuit against Kraken, Kraken is “playing the long game.” Powell said in a post that the game feels fairer as Binance pays a $4.3 billion fine.
Powell pointed out that in the face of new threats to the reputation of the industry, he believed that every illegal operation was an opportunity for the government to find trouble for cryptocurrency, and called on the industry to self-regulate, because timely protection cannot be expected. Powell also mentioned Coinbase and Ripple in the article, saying they were easy targets for the SEC along with Kraken.
The SEC previously accused Kraken’s parent company of unregistered offerings of its crypto-asset staking rewards service program, a charge it ultimately settled with a $30 million settlement. Powell said this was just the beginning of another blackmail by the SEC, emphasizing that the $30 million would only last about 10 months. He advised crypto companies that cannot afford costly legal battles to leave the United States. (The Block)
