This is your Sam Bankman-Freed Trial Update for October 30, 2023.

Sam Bankman-Freed, the founder of the collapsed cryptocurrency exchange FTX, took the stand again today for a day of cross-examination from federal prosecutors. He faces seven counts of fraud and conspiracy related to the collapse of FTX and its sister trading house, Alameda Research.
Prosecutors started their cross-examination by focusing on Bankman-Freed's lavish lifestyle and spending habits. They also pressed him on his knowledge of the risky investments that Alameda Research made, and his role in the collapse of FTX.
Bankman-Freed continued to deny that he committed fraud or stole from FTX customers. He admitted that he made mistakes, but he said that he was always acting in the best interests of the company.
One of the most notable moments of the day came when prosecutors asked Bankman-Freed if he had ever called FTX customers "dumb." He admitted that he had, but said that it was in the context of a private conversation and that he didn't mean to be offensive.
The cross-examination is expected to continue tomorrow.
Other news from the trial today:
Federal Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that Bankman-Freed cannot testify about the involvement of FTX lawyers in his decisions and actions.
Bankman-Freed's defense team is expected to call witnesses next week, including former FTX employees and crypto experts.
The trial is expected to last several weeks.
The Sam Bankman-Freed trial is entering a critical phase as prosecutors begin their cross-examination. The outcome of the trial could have a major impact on the cryptocurrency industry, and on Bankman-Freed's personal future.
