As a result of the exchange’s demise, the crypto market as a whole was devastated.
SBF, former CEO and founder of FTX, was detained in The Bahamas recently.
Kevin O’Leary, a Canadian entrepreneur and star of the show “Shark Tank,” has today criticized the cryptocurrency exchange Binance, saying it intentionally caused the FTX to crash. The celebrity businessman said that Binance is a “massive, unregulated monopoly now” appearing at the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs.
Among one of the largest digital asset exchanges in the world, FTX saw a dramatic collapse last month, leading policymakers to consider digital asset regulation more than ever before. O’Leary, who has a significant investment in FTX, spoke today, saying, “I have an opinion, not the records. One put the other out of business—intentionally.”
Crypto Market Took a Hit
The largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world, Binance, was instrumental in the downfall of giant exchange FTX last month. When Binance’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), stated that the exchange would be selling its supply of FTX’s native coin, it caused a liquidity crisis. FTX declared bankruptcy a few days later.
As a result of the exchange’s demise, the cryptocurrency market as a whole was devastated, along with the stocks of many firms that had dealt with the giant exchange in some way.
The moment has come to “separate digital assets from corrupt organizations,” as Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) said during the session. Sam Bankman-Fried, former CEO and founder of FTX, was detained in The Bahamas over the weekend after U.S. authorities demanded his extradition from the nation where FTX is headquartered. As a result, he is now the subject of an investigation and faces eight felony counts.
