This is your Sam Bankman Freed podcast and this is an update for November 4, 2023.

Sam Bankman-Freed, the founder of the bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX, was found guilty on all seven counts of fraud and conspiracy on Thursday, November 3, 2023, in a New York federal court. The charges included wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, securities fraud, conspiracy to commit securities fraud, commodities fraud, conspiracy to commit commodities fraud, and money laundering.
The verdict came after a two-week trial in which the prosecution presented evidence that Bankman-Freed had orchestrated a massive scheme to defraud FTX customers and investors. The prosecution alleged that Bankman-Freed had used customer funds to make risky investments and to prop up his own cryptocurrency hedge fund, Alameda Research. He also allegedly lied to investors about the financial health of FTX.
Bankman-Freed's defense team argued that he had made mistakes but that he had not intended to commit fraud. They also argued that the prosecution had failed to prove that Bankman-Freed had personally profited from his actions.
The jury deliberated for just a few hours before reaching a unanimous verdict. Bankman-Freed was immediately taken into custody and is scheduled to be sentenced on March 28, 2024. He faces a maximum sentence of up to 115 years in prison.
The conviction of Sam Bankman-Freed is a major victory for the government in its crackdown on cryptocurrency fraud. It is also a major setback for the cryptocurrency industry, which has been plagued by scandals in recent years.
Sentencing Information
Bankman-Freed is scheduled to be sentenced on March 28, 2024, by US District Judge Lewis Kaplan. The maximum sentence for the charges against Bankman-Freed is 115 years in prison, but it is unlikely that he will receive such a long sentence.
The judge will consider a number of factors when determining Bankman-Freed's sentence, including the severity of the crimes, his lack of criminal history, and the cooperation he has provided to the government. It is possible that Bankman-Freed could receive a sentence of several years in prison, but it is also possible that he could receive a suspended sentence or probation.
The outcome of Bankman-Freed's sentencing hearing will be closely watched by the cryptocurrency industry and by the public. It will be a test of the government's commitment to holding cryptocurrency executives accountable for their actions.
