Earlier in an interview with CNN, FTX’s CEO explained which crypto firms should be rescued as a priority in this industry.
“The key type of players we are looking for to extend credit to are the ones that build the good businesses, ones that have customers need protecting, where we’re trying to stop engaging to spread to the ecosystem, and where there is a long-term sustainable pathway forward.”
