    FTX Takes Legal Action Against Sam Bankman-Fried and Former Executives: Alleged $1 Billion Misappropriation

    FTX filed the complaint in a United States Bankruptcy Court on July 20. The lawsuit names Sam Bankman-Fried, along with former Alameda Research CEO, Caroline Ellison, FTX co-founder Zixiao “Gary” Wang, and former FTX engineering director, Nishad Singh, as defendants. Moreover, FTX accuses these former executives of breaching their fiduciary duties. Allegedly, by continuously misappropriating customer funds. The alleged misuse involved financing luxury condominiums, political and so-called “charitable” contributions, speculative investments, and personal pet projects.

    Additionally, the lawsuit claims that these former executives, including Sam Bankman-Fried, abused their authority over FTX and its related companies. Markedly, to perpetrate one of the largest financial frauds in history. The allegations further state that they issued over $725 million worth of equity to themselves. This was without providing any value in return to the company.

    FTX also accuses Sam Bankman-Fried and Zixiao “Gary” Wang of misappropriating an additional $546 million. Apparently, they used the funds to buy shares in the popular trading platform, Robinhood. Meanwhile, Caroline Ellison is accused of paying herself $28.8 million in bonuses and investing $10 million of those funds in an artificial intelligence company. Finally, the lawsuit reveals that Bankman-Fried transferred $10 million from his FTX US account to his father’s account on the same exchange, claiming it as a “gift” on January 24, 2022.
