Kraken CEO Jesse Powell once again lashes out harsh criticism at the state of New York after its AG accused the exchange of breaking the law. As U.Today reported earlier, the AG report implied that Kraken and other cryptocurrency exchanges are enabling market manipulation.

It didn’t take long for the Powell to respond on Twitter. He draws a parallel between New York’s stance on cryptocurrencies and an abusive ex-partner who keeps stalking you despite the relationships being over a long time ago.

Indeed, the relationships between Kraken and New York ended back in 2015 after the company left the state’s jurisdiction, not willing to comply with the onerous “BitLicense” regulatory framework.
