Crypto investors who had funds on the platform closely followed the trial of co-founder Sam Bankman-Fried.
For crypto traders who had money on FTX when the platform collapsed last year, Sam Bankman-Fried’s trial was a morass of anger and disbelief.
A jury in Manhattan convicted Bankman-Fried, 31, of seven counts of fraud and conspiracy on Thursday, after less than five hours of deliberations. That swift verdict marked the end of a month-long trial, and the disgraced co-founder faces as much as 20 years in prison on each of the most serious charges.
