EP11 - The leaked congressional testimony of FTX's Sam Bankman-Fried

We review and analyze the unread & leaked congressional transcript of FTX's Sam Bankman-Fried

🔻Was SBF the smartest guy in the room? Was he playing 4d chess while everyone played checkers? Or was he just the fall guy on the backdrop of systemic fraud that permeates throughout the centralized crypto exchange ecosystem?

SBF went on an “interview roadshow” over the month of December 2022, but the one interview that mattered: his testimony in front of the US Financial Services Committee, never had its moment in the spotlight. Until now.

🚀 In this podcast we:

  • Recap the charges against SBF by the US SEC, CFTC, and Attorney General’s office of SDNY

  • Read and analyze the entire leaked transcript SBF was supposed to read at his congressional hearing

and attempt to answer…

  • Was SBF the fall guy?

  • How many other degenerates like SBF and FTX are hiding in the crypto space?

  • Will anyone else be held accountable?
