In Reddit, there were rumors that the branch of the crypto exchange Kraken in Canada closes after three months of work. According to one version, this is due to the leakage of the database with the personal data of users, on the other – the pre-bankrupt state of the company.
Earlier Kraken voluntarily left Japan, the decision to leave Asia was caused by the reason and the desire to save on costs, but the closure of a newly opened office can point to real problems with finances.
The company denied rumors spreading in social networks about problems or data leakage, employees of the office in Halifax (Canada) also did not change their status on the LinkedIn network, and accounts in social networks Reddit, which reported the news have an empty message history.
At the same time, the media note that the company apparently abandoned its plans, announced at the beginning of the year to expand into Asia and expand the staff for 800 people. This can hardly be explained by the drop in the rate of the cryptocurrency, since the reports of “colleagues in the workshop” show that the situation had no effect on earnings of the crypto business, based on commission fees from traders’ transactions.
