Anthony Scaramucci changed his view on FTX, describing what happened as fraud.
“It’s clear now that it’s a scam,” the SkyBridge Capital founder told CNBC.
Anthony Scaramucci Talks About FTX
Scaramucci spoke hesitantly after the collapse of FTX and avoided making any definitive judgments about what happened. SkyBridge Capital CEO said he changed his mind after FTX co-founder Gary Wang and Alameda Research’s Caroline Ellison pleaded guilty.
SBF bought 30% of SkyBridge shares last September. Anthony Scaramucci said the fund plans to buy back its stake in FTX.
While Wang and Ellison plead guilty, SBF takes a different approach. The founder of FTX denied the accusations made against him, claiming his innocence.
SBF was arrested in the Bahamas last month and extradited to the United States. Released on $250 million bail, the former CEO now resides in his family’s California home.
