FTX Collapse: Bankman-Fried Breaks His Silence to Defend His Image

He wants to remain the owner of his image.

He wants to be able to control what is said about him, even if it means breaking his silence as he faces a series of criminal and civil charges that could land him up to 115 years in prison.

The former cryptocurrency trader does not follow the advice that many lawyers often give their celebrity clients: keep a low profile.

Bankman-Fried wants to express himself and seizes the opportunity as soon as it presents itself to paint a positive image of him.
