FTX Bankman-Fried Wants Secrecy for Signers of $250 Million Bond Unlike Other SDNY Defendants

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 – Sam Bankman-Fried of FTX was indicted in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, leading to his arrest in the Bahamas on December 12, and extradition to the US on December 21. He was released on $250 million bond, with the requirement of co-signers.

Now he wants them secret: "LETTER MOTION addressed to Judge Lewis A. Kaplan from Mark S. Cohen dated January 3, 2023 re: Request to Redact Names and Identifying Information for Certain Bail Sureties . Document filed by Samuel Bankman-Fried. (Cohen, Mark)."

The US Attorney's Office also released the plea agreements (signed December 19) of Caroline Ellison of Alameda (on Inner City Press' DocumentCloud here) and of Gary Wang - on Patreon here.

On December 22 when Bankman-Fried was presented and released on $250 million bond, with a condition that "Defendant not to enter into financial transactions in excess of $1,000 without pre-approval of the Government or Court, except to pay for legal costs and fees," see below. Inner City Press live tweeted, thread here.

5 separate transactions of <51 ETH were used to move funds to newly created wallets then onwards to a Seychelles based exchange

3 tranches of 200k USDT were also sent from the SBF linked wallet to the FixedFloat exchange
