Sam Bankman-Fried’s Stock is Purchased by Robinhood for $605 Million.


Sam Bankman-Fried and Gary Wang’s shares in the cryptocurrency trading company Robinhood were successfully repurchased from the US Marshal Service.

Through Emergent Fidelity Technologies, FTX founders Bankman-Fried and Wang controlled 55 million shares in Robinhood; these shares were seized as part of the criminal prosecution against Bankman-Fried. On December 30, 2022, a warrant was issued to seize these shares. They were moved to the US on January 4 and a sale request was made on August 13 of same year.

In a deal with the US Marshal Service, Robinhood paid $605 million to repurchase these shares.

Bankman-Fried and his attorneys have previously opposed the FTX bankruptcy estate’s claim on these shares, arguing in particular that while FTX clients only ran the risk of “economic loss,” Bankman-Fried ran the risk of suffering “irreparable” harm from possibly not being able to use these funds to support his criminal defense.

Wang has previously entered a plea of guilty to the charges of securities fraud, commodities fraud, wire fraud, and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

Bankman-Fried is accused of a number of other offenses as well, but thus far he has maintained his innocence.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

Billionaire owners like Elon Musk, Larry Fink (BlackRock), and Jamie Dimon (JP Morgan Chase) often have a strong influence on the hidden agendas surrounding the paradigm shift brought about by cryptocurrency and emerging Web3 technologies. CryptoCaster stands apart. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to please. Our journalism is dedicated to serving the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions, not profit motives.

We avoid the pitfall of much U.S. and global media, which often resorts to false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency guide everything we do, we recognize that there is a right and wrong stance in the fight against fiat global banking interests and the monetary reconstruction driven by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance, and Ripple crises, we’re not afraid to name names and uncover the truth. As a crypto sentinel, we offer a fresh, outsider perspective on global monetary disruption—something often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
