InfoNesia.xyz – The House Financial Services Committee will next month hear from Sam Bankman-Fried on the collapse of his crypto empire, lawmakers announced today.
Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) said Wednesday that the bipartisan hearing will look into FTX’s fall and its “broader consequences for the digital asset ecosystem.”
Digital asset exchange FTX imploded last week in perhaps the most highly publicized cryptocurrency event all time.

“The fall of FTX has posed tremendous harm to over one million users, many of whom were everyday people who invested their hard-earned savings into the FTX cryptocurrency exchange, only to watch it all disappear within a matter of seconds,” Wednesday’s statement read.
It added that rival exchange Binance, which offered to buy FTX before pulling out after seeing its financial statements, will also testify along with Bankman-Fried’s trading firm Alameda Research and other related entities.
