Et Tu, Salame?! FTX Whistleblower Revealed

December 15th, 2022
With all the crazy stories swirling around about FTX employee extravagances and ignorances about how the empire was being run, it looks like (maybe) one employee didn’t like what he was seeing. Ex Co-CEO of FTX Digital Markets, Ryan Salame, tipped off Bahamaian regulators of potential fraud by sending customer funds to sister trading firm, Alameda Research, just two days before FTX’s inevitable demise. There were three individuals he called out specifically for having this kind of access: SBF, FTX co-founder Zixiao “Gary” Wang, and FTX engineer Nishad Singh.

December 12th, 2022

A new U.S. Department of Justice probe accuses Binance of violating sanctions against Iran, by allowing ~$1B in crypto transactions to Iranian-based businesses. The probe also saw some irregularities in Binance’s compliance program. The investigation is primarily centered around U.S. anti-money laundering laws and sanctions. The interesting part is it is understood the DOJ has enough evidence to put criminal charges against some Binance executives, including CZ.
