Caroline Ellison Testimony in SBF Trial
In the ongoing trial of Mr. Bankman-Fried, former FTX executive Caroline Ellison testified that her former boss's risky strategy led to the loss of billions from customers. FTX, once one of the world's largest crypto trading platforms, went bankrupt in November, with over $8 billion reportedly missing.
