The Shark Tank star described the senators as “bored” and “really tired of meeting every six months when the next crypto company goes bankrupt and goes to zero.” He believes this is one of the reasons why SEC Chairman Gary Gensler recently cracked down on exchange Kraken over their staking scheme.

“The environment has become very aggressive and regulators are popular with senators, congressmen and women. They’re the ones who are saying ‘what’s this? We’ve had enough. “

“You have to be ready for regulation. You have to stay away from Gensler, SEC and other regulators. Those Washington punks are not happy… FTX made fun of the bear. Bear woke up and was not happy,” O’Leary concluded.
