What made Sam Bankman-Fried launch FTX — and what he now thinks about the world (Part 2)

Sam Bankman-Fried, the billionaire founder of crypto exchange FTX, joins The Scoop to close out 2021 in a two-part episode that explores the origin story of the increasingly ubiquitous trading venue, Bankman-Fried's worldview, and what he expects for the digital asset market in the year to come.

In Part 2 of this episode, Bankman-Fried and Chaparro also explore:

  • Whether a crackdown on stablecoins is a possible concern for FTX’s business
  • The ramifications of the government’s “really extreme fiscal” reaction to Covid-19 and its impact on the monetary supply
  • Why the Fed should have seen hot inflation coming
  • Product leverage in the cryptocurrency market and cascading liquidations
  • How the amount of capital sitting on the sidelines is “absolutely massive” and could fend off a big crypto bear market
