A crypto enthusiast noted that he resigned from the FDIC body because of the recent investigation reports that disclosed the toxic work environment. 

Two weeks ago, a third-party investigation reported claims of sexual harassment and other bad behaviour at the FDIC, and how the management handled these issues.

As per Reuters Report, On 15 May, Martin testified before Congress over widespread sexual harassment allegations and mistreatment of subordinates. Now ex-FDIC chair faced criticism from Republicans and Democrats, who expressed anger, dismay, and disbelief at the depths of the issues at the FDIC.

Following these reports, the US White House stated that it intends to put forward a new nominee for the position of FDIC chair.

The departure of Martin from FEDIC was labelled as the best day for the crypto sector, by Castle Island Ventures partner Nic Carter.

A popular US-based crypto lawyer also criticised crypto-hater US government official Elizabeth Warren for defending and trying to protect Martin, who is currently facing disgrace or scandal.
