According to the author of the petition, the purchase of QuadrigaCX by such a giant of crypto-trade as Kraken, will be a positive change for both platforms.

"(...) the CEO of Kraken (...) tweeted how Quadriga mismanaged users' funds and believed that the story about the death of the CEO was not believable. This is Jesse Powell and Kraken's petition to redeem Quadriga (...) and take control of the Quadriga exchange." – from the petition.
Recall that the new leadership of the QuadrigaCX cannot get access to 15,000 wallets with client money. The total amount of blocked crypto-coins is about $ 190 million. The press center of the exchange claims that Gerry Cotten, the CEO of the platform, died in December 2018. At the same time, he allegedly single-handedly controlled the "cold" keys of the exchanger.
