The user under the https://gagarin.news/news/elon-musk-is-accused-of-being-a-scammer/?expertise_level=2 nickname Raja saw in the agreement of the machinations of the head of FTX Sam Bankman-Fried, who “puts everyone in such a position, and then“ helps out ””.

After that, the company announced the dismissal of the fifth part of the personnel.
According to media reports, in the context of recent market turbulence, the cryptolending platform eliminated at least part of the position of the Head Fund Three Arrows Capital.
In June, Bankman-Fried said that he was making efforts to mitigate negative phenomena in the cryptocurrency market due to problems of Celsius and Three Arrows Capital.
On June 18, the Voyager Digital cryptocurrency broker said that Alameda Research provided him with a 200 million USDC and a renewable credit line for 15,000 BTC (~ $ 300 million).
Earlier, Bankman-Fried promised to spend “billions” on the purchase of shares in other companies.
