FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried to testify in criminal trial
Mark Cohen, lead attorney for the defense in United States v Sam Bankman-Fried, said his client will take the stand and testify at a New York federal courthouse during the fraud trial for FTX’s collapse.
FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried is one of four witnesses set to testify under oath sometime between late October and mid-November of 2023. This will come after federal prosecutors call one more witness, FBI special agent Mark Troyano according to InnerCityPress.
The agent will reportedly give expert analysis on chat log and auto-delete strategies employed by Bankman-Fried while he held the reigns at his crypto exchange.
