Thanks to Senate financial disclosure forms filed on May 1, we know a great deal about the cryptocurrency options and futures platform leader’s wealth, including the fact that she and her husband have been selling off investments at a furious pace.
Bakkt CEO Mike Blandina has stepped down as leader of the cryptocurrency futures and options platform after only four months, according to a statement by owner Intercontinental Exchange, better known as ICE. He will be replaced on an interim basis by ICE vice president of M&A and integration David Clifton.
It is “ridiculous” to think that former Bakkt CEO and current Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) would know that she began selling several million dollars’ worth of stock beginning the same day a private senatorial briefing on coronavirus made clear they would soon tank.
Former Bakkt CEO and current Senator Kelly Loeffler's membership on the committee overseeing the Commodity Futures Trading Commission presents a potential conflict of interest, but also gives the cryptocurrency industry a knowledgeable and friendly seat at the table.
