FTX’s Sam Bankman-Fried To Speak at New York Times DealBook Summit

  • Sam Bankman-Fried to speak with Andrew Ross Sorkin at the DealBook Summit in New York.
  • The event will take place on November 30 with other speakers including Ukrainian President Zelensky.
  • Sorkin, the founder of DealBook, says he has many questions that need answers regarding FTX.

Sam Bankman-Fried, the former CEO of the collapsed crypto exchange FTX, publicly shared on Thursday that he will appear as a guest speaker at the New York Times DealBook Summit. The event will take place on November 30 in New York, USA.

Bankman-Fried shared the news on Twitter:

The news soon created havoc among other crypto experts, including John Deaton, the founder of Crypto Law. Deaton did not react well to the news, stating, “if this happens, then I’ve lost all faith in our justice system.”

Deaton further added:

Let me make this clear if SBF isn’t arrested and charged with fraud, wire fraud, theft, and possibly money laundering before and instead gets to spew out his bullshit narrative, our system of justice has been compromised. Ewarren you claim to be for the little guy, where are you.

Meanwhile, the founder of DealBook at the New York Times, Andrew Ross Sorkin, stirred the air clear by clarifying that Bankman-Fried would still be a guest speaker even after the mishap regarding FTX. Sorkin said he has a lot of questions that need answers directly from the horse’s mouth.

Sorkin later added:

A lot of folks have been asking if I would still be interviewing SBF_FTX at the NYTimes DealBook Summit on Nov 30… The answer is yes. There are a lot of important questions to be asked and answered. Nothing is off-limits. Looking forward to it.

In addition to Bankman-Fried, the summit features New York City Mayor Eric Adams, BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) CEO Larry Fink, former Vice President Mike Pence, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Interestingly, the tickets to attend the summit cost $2,499.

In other news, Bankman-Fried shared a disclosed apology letter mentioning all his wrongdoings that led to the crash of FTX. Currently, Bankman-Fried has been residing at the FTX headquarters in the Bahamas.
