据报道,Bakkt的首席执行官Kelly Loeffler已经被州长Brian Kemp任命为美国参议院议员,直到2020年11月的特别选举。


据《亚特兰大宪法报》(Atlanta Journal-Constitution)援引“几名共和党高级官员”的话说,罗伊弗勒可能会在下周接替约翰尼·伊萨克森(Johnny Isakson),后者已宣布计划在12月31日辞去参议员职位。


伊萨克森上一次连任是在2016年,他将在2022年任期结束前离任。在2020年11月的特别选举之前,肯普有权挑选一个接替者。


州长办公室、共和党全国委员会、乔治亚州共和党和参议员Isakson的办公室都没有回应CoinDesk的置评请求。洲际交易所(ICE)拒绝置评。


Bakkt是ICE于2018年宣布成立的子公司,该公司表示,它可以在9月份推出比特币期货合约,提供实物结算的比特币期货合约。该公司还计划明年推出面向消费者的应用程序。


Loefller曾担任ICE的首席沟通和营销总监。

 

Crypto custodian Bakkt’s chief executive Kelly Loeffler has reportedly been picked by Governor Brian Kemp to serve in the U.S. Senate until the special election in November 2020. 

 

Loeffler will likely be asked next week to serve as the replacement of U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, who has announced plans to vacate his senate seat on December 31, according to a report by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, citing "several senior GOP officials."

 

Last re-elected in 2016, Isakson is set to leave office before the expiration of his term in 2022. Kemp has authority to pick a replacement to fill in until the special election in November 2020. 

 

The governor's office, The Republican National Committee, Georgia Republican Party and Senator Isakson’s office have not responded to a request for comment from CoinDesk. The Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) declined to comment. 

 

A subsidiary of ICE announced in 2018, Bakkt said it was cleared to launch in September, providing physically-settled bitcoin futures contracts. It also has plans for a consumer facing app next year. 

 

Loefller previously served as chief communication and marketing director at ICE.
