FTX CEO Sam-Bankman Fried doesn’t mind “losing money” if FTX’s bailouts for struggling crypto platforms are truly meaningful for the overall development of the crypto industry. .

Despite receiving help from FTX, Voyager Digital still has to file for bankruptcy, but Mr. Sam Bankman-Fried claims he is not “depressed” and will be ready to help more.
The top leader of FTX said at the Bloomberg Crypto Conference taking place in New York on July 19 as follows:

Binance is only looking to help a few companies that have financial problems but can fix them or have great potential when they return to the market in a stable position.
