Binance CEO calls FTX founder a ‘liar’ and ‘bad player’

Sam Bankman-Fried, the creator of FTX, has been called a “liar” by Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao for intentionally stealing from his clients.

As investors withdrew $6 billion from the cryptocurrency platform last week, Bankman-Fried transferred $10 billion of FTX customer funds to the cryptocurrency trading firm Alameda Research.

Of the $10 billion transferred to Alameda, which his on-and-off girlfriend Caroline Ellison managed, about $2 billion is said to be still missing.

One of the biggest crypto market crashes ever happened, and former crypto star Bankman-Fried was at the center of it all when he said, “I f***** up.”

As Bankman-Fried, 30, tries to hide out in the Bahamas amid the drama, the FBI is currently looking into the company.

Sam “knew” that Zhao was “using the user fund to do trading for Alameda,” according to Zhao’s sensational claim.

He continued, “I’m sure he’s been doing this for a while, and nobody else knew until just recently.

As investors withdrew $6 billion from the cryptocurrency platform last week, Bankman-Fried moved $10 billion of FTX client funds to the cryptocurrency trading firm Alameda Research.

I’m just surprised. Before a week ago, I was unaware that he had lied to everyone.

He asserts that even if he favors more rules for the cryptocurrency sector, it is doubtful that they would have stopped the collapse of FTX.

Zhao continued, “Regulations do not stop it when someone lies or when there is a bad player who only wants to do bad things.

Gun control does not guarantee that no one will use a weapon to murder someone.

Binance liquidated its interests in FTT, the digital asset that FTX developed, after withdrawing from negotiations to acquire FTX.

Customers scrambled to withdraw their cash, resulting in a $6 billion run on the cryptocurrency exchange.

Zhao, also known as CZ, told CNBC that it was “clear pretty soon that there was a misappropriation of user funds” and claimed that it was obvious that the FTC had a problem.

pathetic tech bro The demise of Sam Bankman-Fried’s business, FTX, was attributed by the 30-year-old (left) to his ex-girlfriend Caroline Ellison (right). Ellison joined Alameda with only 18 months of trading experience before becoming its CEO.

It was obvious that Bankman-Fried had lied to his customers, investors, venture capitalists, and staff, he claimed.

We didn’t go very far because we could no longer trust the data and it was difficult for us to conduct our due diligence.

Throughout the summer, Bankman-Fried spoke out about unethical behavior in the crypto industry and how such actions “massively more harm than good.”

We are extremely concerned about anyone using the tokens they produce as collateral for borrowing money. That’s not what we do at Binance.

Bankman-Fried shockingly admitted that his adherence to morality was “just a front” and that he “feels bad” for those who were “f***** by it.”

SEC Chair Gary Gensler is currently the subject of serious inquiries regarding his relationship with the disgraced cryptocurrency wunderkind as well as the lack of regulation of the market, which Gensler himself has referred to as the Wild West.

Before his downfall, Bankman-Fried lied to politicians and regulators to try to persuade them that cryptocurrencies were a valuable asset that should be embraced.

However, he said “f*** regulators” in a recent interview with Vox and claimed that they were “making everything worse.”

Numerous A-list celebrities who openly supported the disgraced cryptocurrency trading platform FTX have been named in a $11 billion class action lawsuit.

Stars like Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, Shaquille O’Neal, Steph Curry and Larry David are among those listed in the claim filed in Florida.

Authorities in America and the Bahamas, where FTX was domiciled and Bankman-Fried is presently holed up, are contemplating the idea of extraditing him to the United States for interrogation.

The controversy prompted a crisis of confidence in cryptocurrencies as a whole and led the value of assets, including Bitcoin to drop.

Last week it was disclosed that Alameda was reportedly sent $10 billion of FTX client money in secret by Bankman-Fried.

Around $2 billion of the $10 billion sent to Alameda is apparently still missing.

And now a slew of A-list celebrities who publicly promoted FTX has been sued in a class action lawsuit totaling $11 billion.

Stars like Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, Shaquille O’Neal, Steph Curry and Larry David are among those listed in the claim filed in Florida.
