FTX Founder Sam Bankman-Fried Pleads Not Guilty To New Charges

Sam Bankman-Fried pleads not guilty to a new set of charges as the former crypto tycoon faces the possibility of spending decades imprisoned.

Federal prosecutors allege in a new indictment that’s been unsealed this Tuesday that the founder of bankrupt crypto exchange FTX paid $40 million in crypto to induce Chinese government officials to unfreeze the trading accounts of Alameda Research.

The accounts, which contained more than $1 billion in crypto assets, were frozen in early 2021 as China investigated an Alameda counterparty.

The online publication the Daily Hodl notes the fact that Reuters reports that Bankman-Fried pleaded not guilty to the bribery charge at a hearing before District Judge Lewis Kaplan in Manhattan federal court on Thursday.

The crypto exchange is also planning to give selected Kraken NFT holders a chance to see their digital collectibles displayed on the rear wing the Williams Racing car.
