    "John McAfee charges $105,000 per tweet to promote your ICO...

    And there is no shortage of confidence on the McAfee team. They write: 'John McAfee’s tweets are by far the most influential in the field of cryptocurrency. Over 50,000 of his followers answered a series of polls about their investments and use of cryptocurrencies.'

    As of April 3, John McAfee had 812,000 Twitter followers."

    In order to be fully insulated Kraken would have to go "offshore". Any company operating within the USA can be compelled to comply on legal matters. I realize this is a survey/questionnaire but next time it could be something more serious. This is one of the reasons why many US citizens establish offshore trusts/LLCs.

    "Crypto exchange Kraken may have to comply with New York AG push for transparency

    We have enforcement jurisdiction, says Eric Schneiderman’s office...

    The AG’s office said in an email to MarketWatch that they have 'enforcement jurisdiction over foreign businesses [meaning those based outside of New York] operating in New York.'

    This capacity appears to come through the Martin Act of 1921, which gives state AGs power to bring financial cases against individuals and companies outside the state of New York on behalf of its residents engaging with those companies..."
