Bankman-Fried Secretly Cashed Out $300 Million During FTX Funding Spree

One can read SBF’s latest, excruciatingly grating and self-serving twitter thread in 32 parts…

In other words, a pure primary offering.

But as the Journal reports, what was left unmentioned was that nearly three-quarters of the money, $300 million, went instead to FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried, who sold some of his personal stake in the company, according to FTX financial records reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. In other words, what was repped & warranted as a primary offering was really most a secondary. Which of course is completely criminal but in SBF’s case it just means “get in line.” – READ MORE
