Idk he did the biggest crime possible in the us.

He stole from the rich.

It is highly speculated that when FTX was going down and a bank run on the company seemed to be in it's infancy, they gave what money they still had to their most important/wealthy investors first, although SBF characterizes this as FTX having given back requested withdrawals on a "first come, first serve" basis.

Eh... he also donated a lot of money to politicians.

Yeah, but he's no longer able to donate to politicians. Politicians are kind of big on "What can you do for me?" types of exchanges. (Note: Good politicians are using this to score investment for their constituents, whereas bad politicians for themselves. Ugly politicians don't play this game and shit all over everything. Case in point: today's House of Representatives.)

I mean that's as easy as cut me some deals and I'll throw some money your way for reelection.

He has billions

Pretty sure that he's in trouble specifically for the fact he doesn't have billions.


IWankToTits t1_j2ugioz wrote

I mean the problem is his users don't have their money. It's pretty clear he has some extreme wealth tucked away.

Those poor rich people. He's going to burn for that! (Actually though)

Did he though? Most crypto investors aren't rich. They're kids who are too young to remember Beanie Babies.
