Sam Bankman-Fried Gf: Born on March 6, 1992, Samuel Benjamin Bankman-Fried is an American businessman, investor, and former billionaire. He goes by the initials SBF. Bankman-Fried was the founder and CEO of the cryptocurrency trading company Alameda Research as well as the FTX exchange. Late in 2022, a crisis at FTX caused the native cryptocurrency of FTX, FTT, to crash. Bankman-Fried resigned as CEO of FTX during the crisis and declared he would wind down operations at Alameda Research. FTX then filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Who Is Sam Bankman-Fried Ex-Girlfriend, Caroline Ellison?
The 28-year-old CEO of the failed cryptocurrency company Alameda Research, Caroline Ellison, is under fire for the billions dollar collapse of the company as well as reports that she was Sam Bankman-ex-girlfriend, Fried’s the disgraced creator of FTX.
According to a shocking investigation by CoinDesk, Ellison and Bankman-Fried were part of a “cabal of housemates” operating out of a “luxury apartment” in the Bahamas and responsible for the schemes at FTX and Alameda. About 130 FTX Group affiliates, including Alameda, were listed in a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition made last week.
The housemates are allegedly former Massachusetts Institute of Technology classmates of Bankman-Fried as well as ex-colleagues from the quantitative trading company Jane Street.
The 10 insiders had relationships that went beyond work; according to the study, some of them “are, or used to be, partnered up in romantic relationships with each other.”
While controlling the now-bankrupt cryptocurrency empire, which had a valuation that dropped from roughly $32 billion at its peak to essentially nil after a sharp downturn, Ellison and Bankman-Fried occasionally dated.
A person with knowledge of the situation told CoinDesk that “a gang of adolescents in the Bahamas ran the entire operation.”

But as the committee still thinks it would be useful, I am willing to testify on the 13th. https://t.co/KR34BsNaG1
