Investors to settle with SBF

According to a Bloomberg report, Sam Bankman-Fried, founder and former CEO of FTX, recently sentenced to 25 Years in prison, has come to terms with a group of investors. It's been barely three weeks since the official sentence of Bankman-fried to prison.

The agreement with FTX investors involves all claims against Sam being dropped if he cooperates with the class representatives to strengthen their case against celebrity promoters of FTX by providing valuable information regarding their dealings.

If the court approves, the agreement will mandate that Bankman-fried release confidential information about celebrities' involvement in raising FTX ratings before its eventual collapse in 2022.

These celebrities include Shaquille O'Neal, Stephen Curry, Lawrence Gene David, Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, and even organizations such as MBA's Miami Heat franchises, SoftBank Group, Paradigm Operations LP, and many more.

Bankman-Fried will also be required to provide certain documents alongside evidence of these people and organizations' involvement with FTX and present them to the court without a subpoena, a filed document showed.

This will include a financial statement of all his current assets and a sworn affidavit of all his financial assets. He will also provide an affidavit stating that his net worth is negative.

This follows a recent demand by US Senator Elizabeth Warren for the head of the US Commodity & Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Rostin Behnam, to give a full account of his several meetings with SBF before the FTX implosion.
