FTX settles in The Bahamas FTX and key figures in Sam Bankman-Fried’s orbit spent $121million on real estate in The Bahamas between 2021 and 2022, according property records that Reuters reviewed. According to a Tuesday report, FTX, Bankman-Fried’s parents Joseph Bankman and Barbara Fried, spent the nine-figure sum on at most 19 properties in the past two years. According to the report, FTX spent $72million on seven properties at Albany Club, including a $30 million penthouse, which is now on the market. FTX Property Holdings Ltd., an arm of FTX purchased most of the properties for “key personnel” of the collapsed exchange. However, the documents also reveal that Bankman Fried’s parents were listed as signatories to a beachside “vacation house.” A spokesperson for Bankman Fried said that the couple had attempted to return the property back to FTX. Gary Wang and Nishad Singh, two close associates of Bankman-Fried who held high-ranking positions at FTX respectively, also purchased properties on the island. Because of their close ties with Bankman-Fried and Wang, it is widely believed that Singh and Wang had insider knowledge about Bankman-Fried’s fraudulent activities at the exchange. Since FTX collapsed earlier this month, the pair have remained silent. FTX filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after a bank ran left the firm insolvent. It was revealed that Bankman-Fried had sent $10 million worth of customer funds to Alameda Research as it dealt with market losses and piling up debts. Reuters reported that the source of the funds used in the purchase of the properties was unknown. SBF’s Parents Purchase “Vacation Home” The latest revelation about the Bahamas properties owned and managed by FTX and its associates, is the latest in what has become the most scandalous in cryptocurrency history. In September 2021, Bankman-Fried’s company moved from Hong Kong to The Bahamas. It was also revealed that Alameda and FTX team members had been living together on the island during both of their implosions. It was not known that Fried and Bankman had a “vacation home” close to FTX’s headquarters. This is yet another update that will raise questions about Bankman-Fried’s dealings and their son, who has been the subject of much public scrutiny since the collapse of FTX. The crypto community demanded answers about how Bankman-Fried, who was regarded as a “golden boy” of the industry, managed to deceive an estimated 1,000,000 customers, policymakers, and the media while running a $10B swindle. FTX issued a statement distancing itself with Bankman-Fried’s interview to Vox. The Securities Commission of The Bahamas has claimed responsibility for the hack that affected FTX on November 12. However, data on the chain suggests that a bad actor may be responsible for the bulk of the funds. FTX is being investigated by the Department of Justice as well as the SEC, but Bankman-Fried was not charged with any wrongdoing. The Daily Mail photos show that Bankman Friedrich was still living in the Albany Court penthouse of FTX on November 21. Share this article Decentral Media, Inc. does not act as an investment advisor.
