  • Bankman-Fried was sentenced to 25 years for embezzling funds from the exchange’s clients, marking one of the largest financial frauds in the U.S.

Another chapter will be written in the financial scandal surrounding the now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange FTX. Sentencing hearings have been scheduled for two key former executives who testified against founder Sam Bankman-Fried. Nishad Singh and Gary Wang, who previously pleaded guilty to fraud related to the exchange’s collapse, will face judicial verdicts in the near future.

Singh, expected to be sentenced on October 30, and Wang, whose hearing is scheduled for November 20 in Manhattan federal court, played pivotal roles by cooperating with authorities during the criminal trial against Bankman-Fried. The latter was sentenced to 25 years in March after being found guilty of embezzling nearly $8 billion from FTX clients, an act labeled as one of the largest financial frauds in U.S. history.

FTX’s Story Continues

The cooperation of Singh and Wang was crucial in Bankman-Fried’s conviction, revealing misuse of funds and deceptive practices that led to the platform’s collapse. Their testimonies provided critical details on how Bankman-Fried managed funds at Alameda Research and FTX, exposing questionable practices that undermined confidence in the crypto market.

On the other hand, Ryan Salame, former co-CEO of FTX Digital Markets, was also recently sentenced to 90 months in prison for related charges, despite receiving a harsher penalty due to his lack of cooperation with authorities.

Currently, Bankman-Fried remains in custody at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn as his legal team prepares to appeal both his conviction and sentence. Meanwhile, legal proceedings continue concerning exchange’s assets and class-action lawsuits filed by those affected by the platform’s collapse.
