    Sounds like Binance is trying to hurt a competitor they say back stabbed them?

    Does not appear to be working very well looking at the price action?

    "FTX & Alameda Research seem to hold ~ 8 Billion in FTT tokens like that. The catch? The market cap is only 3 billion. 5 Billion could potentially be false reported money on their balance sheet."

    Who would have thought that an exchange that spent millions and millions of dollars on SuperBowl and World Series ads would go broke?

    It's going to get ugly and swing trading is a good idea right now since news will move this market up and down.

    Brady and Gisele had a huge contract with FTX... uh oh

    Not that they really need the money.... but a contract is a contract.

    He's got 5 more years in the league to recover that lost contract. The bionic arm is in development.

    Derivative traders and staking middle men all going broke can only be good for the industry long term.

    Of course not. These scams always come to the surface when the price is dropping.

    Why hasn’t criminal charges been brought against this guy and his crew yet. siphoning billions of dollars in customers funds to another interest sounds illegal to me.

    Usually all the big coins are available to swap into. I always see BTC as one of the top choices on their menu. After you press sell, it provides a list of coins and BTC is right above ETH.

    Criminal complaints and evidence collection for an indictment donít magically appear. It will take some time.

    They need to press charges soon so that he doesn’t disappear like that Luna CEO who is currently on the run.

    NYT makes SBF look like a good guy
    Mr. Bankman-Fried’s circle of colleagues was bound by a commitment to effective altruism, a charitable movement that urges adherents to give away their wealth in efficient and logical ways. For co-workers outside the clique, it was sometimes difficult to get time to speak with Mr. Bankman Fried, a person familiar with the matter said. And Mr. Bankman-Fried made it a point of pride that FTX had only about a 300-person staff, much smaller than its top rivals, Binance and Coinbase.

    Even as he kept hiring down, Mr. Bankman-Fried built an ambitious philanthropic operation, invested in dozens of other crypto companies, bought stock in the trading firm Robinhood, donated to political campaigns, gave media interviews and offered Elon Musk billions of dollars to help finance the mogul’s Twitter takeover

    Let's add that the story didn't come out until after the midterms.

    A democratic party stooge who offered billion$ to help Elon Musk take over Twitter??

    Or is that too inconveniently against the narrative to add to that list of "evidence"?
