* SBF’s $250 million bail bond has triggered a lawsuit filed by the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and CoinDesk to pressure the court into revealing the identities of individuals who helped secure his bail bond.
* FTX is currently trying to recover as many assets as possible, including filing a case against Voyager Digital for refunding a loan paid before maturity last year.
* As FTX and SBF’s case continue to escalate, a project known as DebtDAO has proposed a token called $FUD to compensate creditors.
The global cryptocurrency community has been eagerly awaiting the public disclosure of individuals, aside from SBF’s parents, who helped secure his $250 million bail bond. However, former FTX CEO SBF has filed an appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit against the ruling made by U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan. This has caused the media industry to put pressure on the court through a lawsuit filed by the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and CoinDesk, arguing that the public’s interest in this matter cannot be overstated. As a result of SBF’s appeal, the identities of the individuals involved may be delayed until the case is heard and a judgment is issued.
