FTX’s former CEO SBF’s Bahamas penthouse on sale for USD40m
Crypto exchange FTX International, its affiliates like FTX US as well as its trading company, Alameda Research, have actually remained in the news over the past couple of weeks.
Founded in 2019, FTX was a leading cryptocurrency exchange besides Binance and also Coinbase, yet has considered that gone bankrupt for supposed misuse of its consumers’ and also financiers’ funds to the tune of USD8-10b.
Simply hrs after it entered into insolvency procedures, and following the resignation of its creator and also a chief executive officer, 30-year-old Sam Bankman-Fried– the exchange was reportedly hacked, and some asserted it might have been an expert or annoyed worker whose guaranteed vested life savings were gone.
Not just that, Singaporeans are reportedly FTX International’s second-biggest client base at 5.26% of the total user base, after South Koreans (6.21%). Since February 2022, FTX had 1 million customers.
It is no understatement that there are numerous dissatisfied Singaporeans (as well as international individuals) whose funds in FTX are shut out (or most likely gone). The majority of them are incapable to withdraw their investments from these platforms.
It must also be noted that Singapore’s own Temasek Holdings, has spent USD210m, or a 1% risk, in FTX International, alongside other investment companies like Sequoia Funding, SoftBank, and many more.
It likewise spent USD65m in the FTX United States. It has actually been considered that crossed out these investments, totaling USD275m in a declaration.
While Bankman-Fried (also referred to as SBF) is supposedly assisting with investigations in the Bahamas (where FTX International is headquartered), on the internet chatter emerged that his homes in the Bahamas had been put on sale.
The Bahamas penthouse
Noted below for USD40m, the 12,000 square-foot penthouse lies in Albany Hotel, a 600-acre oceanside, deluxe resort neighborhood on the New Divine superintendence island in The Bahamas.
Below are some photos of the residential or commercial property, which lies in the Orchid building of the resort. The structure has 9 houses providing two to six bed rooms with 2,500 to 11,500 square feet areas.
Made by Morris Ajmi Architects, the Orchid rests overlooking the Albany Marina as well as the Atlantic Sea. The Penthouse in Orchid is the cornerstone of the development as it has a delicious master bedroom collection with his and also her shower rooms, walk-in storage rooms, and a personal veranda with a lounge location and medical spa.
There are 4 other ensuite bedrooms as well as a grand living room with a dining area that opens up onto an exterior pool and patio. There is also a household entertainment area, a modern cooking area with a separate bar, an outside bbq corner, and also much more.
The penthouse is created with Venetian plaster wall surfaces, matching Italian marble accents, German-engineered windows, and doors, custom closets, an LED illumination system, and also a Creston smart house system. A security-coded personal lift for the proprietor attaches him to his personal garage.
While we can not yet confirm that this is the penthouse where SBF and his inner circle of good friends lived, there are resemblances from past recorded interviews. For example, you can watch Nas Daily’s previous interview with SBF as well as see him “cooling” in various parts of his penthouse where the backgrounds look similar.
As a result of the exchange aftereffects, Sam Bankman-Fried’s fortune plummeted from USD16b to near zero in simply a few days.
In cryptocurrency circles, he isn’t the only one we’ve reported (whose lot of money turned for the worse as well as wound up needing to liquidate assets like property).
We formerly covered 3 Arrows Capital’s Su Zhu, who got an Excellent Class Bungalow under a trustee in Yarwood Opportunity for S$ 48.8 m late in 2014. Similarly, the crypto hedge fund company entered into liquidation after shedding its financial investments in cryptocurrency platforms like Terra Luna. There was the supposition that several of his properties in Singapore might have needed to be liquidated. Must check out the Pullman Residences Price as well as the Pullman Residences Balance Unit.
