Too bad it was built on a now-proven framework of lies.
It’s been a long road to get to this verdict. Even after the FTX death spiral and SBF’s bizarre Twitter frenzy in November last year, it feels like there were headlines every month at yet another one of SBF’s attempts to evade the consequences of his deception.
Some say the conclusion of the trial marks a new era for crypto, free from the mistrusting shadow cast by his lies. But his damage was already done last November. In the year since then, the blockchain space has already evolved.
I just hope our news feeds can now be spared of his fluffy locks and bumbling.
