Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, who faces decades in prison, began his testimony last week following rather damning testimonies from several of his former colleagues.
Caroline Ellison, the ex-CEO of Alameda, testified that she received instructions from Bankman-Fried to commit several crimes.
In a recent interview on the This Week in Startups podcast, Inner City Press reporter Mathew Russell Lee said that Ellison’s testimony was particularly damning for Bankman-Fried.
“I think Ellison was a very strong witness because… she [described] how it worked and she’s pled guilty – she acknowledges that she knew that Alameda had this incredible $65 billion line of credit with FTX [and] that when people thought they were sending in money to trade on the FTX platform, it was being diverted to Alameda, but she says very much ‘Sam told me to do this.’”
