Latest Updates On FTX & SBF
Although the misuse of customer funds within the company seems to be blatantly obvious at this point, there have been no moves yet by any police body to arrest or question Sam Bankman-Fried.
In fact, it was recently revealed that the former CEO will attend as a guest speaker at the NYT DealBook summit next Wednesday. This revelation brought on a lot of criticism towards SBF who many claimed seemed like he did not care about the massive amount of lost customer funds due to his actions.
“Let me make this clear if SBF isn’t arrested and charged with fraud, wire-fraud, theft, and possibly money laundering before and instead gets to spew out his bullshit narrative, our system of justice has been compromised. @ewarren you claim to be for the little guy, where are you,” U.S. Attorney and founder of Crypto Law John Deaton wrote on his Twitter.
