The CEO of a well-known cryptocurrency company offered “woke” employees who felt “triggered” by his company’s corporate culture to quit and take severance pay!

Kraken CEO Jesse Powell told Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt that he wanted to restore his company’s culture and avoid distractions, adding some employees felt it was better if they “just moved on.”

“There was a huge amount of support for this move, huge amount of support for the company’s culture and mission and the reinforcement of those. And, I think everyone’s just ready to get back to work and stop being distracted,” said Powell, adding a small number of employees were “creating distractions for the whole company.”

Powell went on to clarify that his company had not been polluted with an “anti-woke” culture for an entire decade, and it was not until the crypto boom that staff was hired who did not align with their original mission. He said about 30 employees took the offer of four months severance out of more than 3,000 staff members.

“We’ve got people from more than 70 countries in the company, that speak more than 50 languages. We’re incredibly diverse in many ways. I think that the problem that some people have is this diversity of thought,” said Powell.

Powell published a restored mission statement, so his employees have a clear idea of the culture he wants to instate in his company. 

“If nobody is ever offended, we either don’t have enough diversity of thought, or we don’t have enough transparency in communication. We recognize that hurt feelings are inevitable in a global organization that is optimizing for team outcomes above individual sentiment. The ideal Krakenite is thick-skinned and well-intentioned,” he wrote.

He says that those easily “triggered” and who are “too woke” are unlikely to thrive in such an environment, but he wanted to give them the opportunity to try or to exit with the dignity and financial security intact. 

Powell expressed that differences of opinion are “inevitable,” and if employees did not align with the company culture and values, it would be best for them to “pursue the next chapter of their career.”

Powell does not identify as “right” or “left” politically but thinks of himself as a free-thinking “libertarian.” He said he doesn’t want employees who prefer their co-workers to “think like them.” But entertains all manners of opinions in the workplace. 

He said the response from his staff was “overwhelmingly positive,” but he holds no ill-will against the few who chose to take the severance and move on.

  1. This was inevitable. I can’t imagine what corporate America was thinking buying into this nonsense. Corporations have only one responsibility and that is to it’s shareholders. Money is why people invest and money is what they expect from their investments. Morality is an individual responsibility not a corporate responsibility. Those of us with our feet firmly planted in reality do not care whether or not a man thinks he’s a woman that is entirely up to the individual. We don’t care what each individual’s sexual proclivities are. What you do in your private life is your business. What you do with my investments is my business. The two simply don’t mix well. Very soon we will see the end of identity politics and the use of divisive rhetoric to maintain power. You whom are woke have had your opportunity and you have failed miserably. People would prefer a functional economy over virtue signaling. The arrogance of believing that somehow you hold the moral high ground is ludicrous and off putting. The time has come for all of this foolishness to come to an end. Do what you want but don’t tell me how to think.

  2. I am an OLD GUY and have been in the work force for over 55 years. I have never been fired from a job but I have quite several times when my views or my plans did not agree with the company’s, One thing I NEVER did was resign before I had another job to go to. I have a relative (young and working in his first job) who quite because he was assured he would be hired by another company. Nothing in writing but did have a handshake. He is now unemployed and struggling to get another job. This is the story common to the WOKE crowd. Wokefulness ( not sure this is a real word) is a imaginary illusion that makes some of these dreamers feel like they are IN charge of something. They (abet, a small percentage of them) resigned with three months severance pay. That is good for about one month. Their next employer will want a reference letter. I would guess they will not get them. Live life and learn<<<

  3. Great post, very informative. I ponder why the other experts of this sector don’t notice this. You must proceed your writing. I am confident, you’ve a huge readers’ base already!
