Kraken’s new CEO denies rumors that FTX was being acquired and calls FTX “thieves”. After Binance rejected the acquisition, rumors circulated that FTX approached Kraken to become a partner. David Ripley (incoming CEO of crypto exchange Kraken) denied the rumours in an interview with Fortune


The rumors that Kraken was acquiring FTX were denied by Kraken’s new CEO. He also called FTX, SBF, “thieves” in an interview with Fortune. He said that FTX’s rescue was not involved and would not reveal more.
“We are constantly receiving more inbound acquisition inquires than I can keep track of, however there was never any legitimate discussion about acquiring FTX ,(…).. It wouldn’t make financial sense for Kraken on several fronts.
He stated that David Ripley stressed that Kraken has no risk associated with FTX or DCG or any entity connected to SBF. He even bluntly stated that FTX is a scam and SBF is a thief.
“I think that it boils down to this: based on all the information [and] the bankruptcy report that has now become public, FTX/SBF are complete frauds – they are not only frauds but thieves.”
Ripley stated that when Ripley was asked about the SBF scam allegations, Binance CEO CZ expressed surprise and said that he had just realized.
