@Martin Everson Thought you'd retire to a nice quiet backwater..... bring out the popcorn mate!

I did too. Gonna ask gov to kick out Tether from our banking system. FTX saga is damaging but it could have been much worse if left to run undiscovered.

How do you think they will find fresh money? Would you be happy with a VAT increase and/or income taxes?

That doesn’t explain how shutting down Deltec would benefit the Bahamas.

You saw the numbers...Deltec does not help here sadly.

Look Bahamas 2022/23 annual expenditure is $3.4bn with expected tax collection of $2.8bn with an expected deficit of $564m (debt financing we can guess).

Btw $3.4bn budget for the entire country for one year would run NY Police Department for just two weeks...lol.


Lets keep to topic please.

If he is as crooked as the media say he is then he got money hidden somewhere. This story will all be forgotten in a few months and he will be living it up somewhere...hopefully not a jail cell smi(&%.

Depending on what is true on the background story, he might get a sudden death or commit suicide.

Funniest thing I have head all week... including wonderful quotes like:
I have over 40 years of legal and restructuring experience. I have been the Chief Restructuring Officer or Chief Executive Officer in several of the largest corporate failures in history. I have supervised situations involving allegations of criminal activity and malfeasance (Enron). I have supervised situations involving novel financial structures (Enron and Residential Capital) and cross-border asset recovery and maximization (Nortel and Overseas Shipholding). Nearly every situation in which I have been involved has been characterized by defects of some sort in internal controls, regulatory compliance, human resources and systems integrity. 5. Never in my career have I seen such a complete failure of corporate controls and such a complete absence of trustworthy financial information as occurred here.
46. Many of the companies in the FTX Group, especially those organized in Antigua and the Bahamas, did not have appropriate corporate governance. I understand that many entities, for example, never had board meetings.
50. The FTX Group did not maintain centralized control of its cash.
59. The FTX Group’s approach to human resources combined employees of various entities and outside contractors, with unclear records and lines of responsibility. At this time, the Debtors have been unable to prepare a complete list of who worked for the FTX Group as of the Petition Date, or the terms of their employment
62. The Debtors did not have the type of disbursement controls that I believe are appropriate for a business enterprise. For example, employees of the FTX Group submitted payment requests through an on-line ‘chat’ platform where a disparate group of supervisors approved disbursements by responding with personalized emojis.
Especially nice for a crypto exchange:
65. The FTX Group did not keep appropriate books and records, or security controls, with respect to its digital assets.
Unacceptable management practices included the use of an unsecured group email account as the root user to access confidential private keys and critically sensitive data for the FTX Group companies around the world, the absence of daily reconciliation of positions on the blockchain, the use of software to conceal the misuse of customer funds, the secret exemption of Alameda from certain aspects of FTX.com’s auto-liquidation protocol, and the absence of independent governance as between Alameda (owned 90% by Mr. Bankman-Fried and 10% by Mr. Wang) and the Dotcom Silo (in which third parties had invested).
Finally, a word on SBF from the new CEO himself:
76. Finally, and critically, the Debtors have made clear to employees and the public that Mr. Bankman-Fried is not employed by the Debtors and does not speak for them. Mr. Bankman-Fried, currently in the Bahamas, continues to make erratic and misleading public statements. Mr. Bankman-Fried, whose connections and financial holdings in the Bahamas remain unclear to me, recently stated to a reporter on Twitter: “F*** regulators they make everything worse” and suggested the next step for him was to “win a jurisdictional battle vs. Delaware”.
This is going to be a very interesting case to watch the coming year(s).

The real sad thing is to see how much money institutional investors poured into his pockets, after having conducted their due diligence procedures, which typically take months.
Whoever has run a legit small size investment fund knows how difficult it is to onboard institutional clients, with all their crazy requests.
