Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of FTX, is currently under house arrest in California while facing multiple fraud charges in what is described as one of the biggest financial scandals in history.
Tiffany Fong, a crypto influencer, visited Bankman-Fried at his parent’s house and said that he seemed “surprisingly optimistic” despite facing a potential jail sentence of up to 115 years if convicted.
Fong said that their conversation was strictly business and that Bankman-Fried expressed regret and remorse for the customers who lost money due to his alleged financial misdeeds, which led to the collapse of FTX.
Bankman-Fried is only allowed to leave his house for exercise, legal meetings, or court-mandated substance abuse and mental health treatment as part of his $250 million bail agreement.
