In the quest to restore sanity into the crypto community and ensure that a scammer is not pampered, the Bahamian authorities have arrested Sam Bankman-Fried after U.
S. law enforcement filed charges against the former crypto billionaire.
Bahamas Attorney General Ryan Pinder said that the United States had filed unspecified criminal charges against Bankman-Fried and was "likely to request his extradition."
Bankman-Fried was expected to testify before the House Financial Services Committee tomorrow, but said he will not appear. His arrest is the first concrete move by regulators to hold individuals accountable for the multi-billion dollar implosion of FTX last month.
Last month, FTX and its affiliates filed for bankruptcy and Bankman-Fried stepped down from his role as CEO. The crypto trading firm imploded in spectacular fashion following a run on assets similar to a bank run.
