Jesse Powell is the Co-Founder & CEO of Kraken.

He was also the founder of Lewt, Inc., which made money primarily by buying and selling items related to the video game franchise Diablo. He also keeps a (infrequently updated) personal blog where he mostly posts about bitcoin and his love for video games. Powell is also known for rejecting the New York State’s BitLicense framework and moving Kraken to California.
