SBF Retains Speakership at NYT Event Despite FTX Mishandling


Despite the huge controversy surrounding the collapse of crypto exchange giant FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) confirmed that he will speak at the New York Times’ DealBook Summit next week.

Given the shockwaves caused by FTX’s demise and the possible mishandling of user funds, the announcement did not sit well with many people in the crypto space. Some asked how SBF gets to speak at the summit despite a now-questionable reputation, while others even went further by saying he should be in jail by now.

For those who are interested in hearing him speak, the summit will be held on November 30 in New York. SBF will be speaking alongside influential persons such as Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink, and more. 

SBF will grace an interview with NYT columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin, who also happens to be the Founder and Editor-at-Large of DealBook. He also confirmed the interview, saying that there are “a lot of important questions to be asked and answered.”

The DealBook Summit is an annual event where personalities from banking, finance, technology, media, government, and policy, among others, come together to discuss critical issues. According to the official website, the venue for this year’s iteration is The Appel Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
