FTX Chief Executive Denounces Founder’s False Claims Amidst Fraud Conviction

Ray’s statement to Judge Lewis A. Kaplan directly contradicted SBF’s assertion that customers, lenders, and investors faced no harm due to the collapse of FTX entities in November.

According to the FTX chief executive, SBF’s narrative of solvency and safety before the exchange’s downfall was a facade, concealing vast sums of stolen money. SBF faced fraud and conspiracy charges, with prosecutors alleging a scheme diverting customer funds for personal use, including luxury real estate and political contributions.

Victims Struggle for Compensation Despite Recovery Efforts

Despite efforts to stabilize FTX, Ray stressed that victims are unlikely to recover fully. Assets, now valued higher, won’t restore victims to pre-fraud economic positions. Ray highlighted discrepancies, with only 105 Bitcoins available against the 100,000 owed due to alleged theft by SBF.

Moreover, the FTX chief executive contested claims of full compensation, revealing ongoing grievances from customers detailed in victim impact statements. He emphasized the enduring suffering of customers, creditors, and stockholders, despite recovery attempts.
