Crypto journalist Laura Shin has called out Genevieve Roch-Decter, the founder and CEO of Grit Capital, a capital market advisory firm, for allegedly spreading misinformation about Sam Bankman-Fried.
Earlier today, Roch-Decter, an active crypto analyst and a former money manager, stated in a Twitter post that SBF was spotted in the Bahamas with his parents. Shin, however, points out that the people in the picture bear no resemblance to Bankman-Fried’s parents. “They might still be in the Bahamas with him,” she follows up, “But these photos aren’t evidence.”
However, in the comment section of the article, the Twitter analyst and crypto investor who goes by the name “That Martini Guy ₿” has shared more photographs wherein both Bankman-Fried’s parents Barbara Fried and Joseph Bankman make an appearance. The pictures posted by the crypto analyst seem to be from the same place and time. These are reportedly from the original article where the pictures were initially featured.
Bankman-Fried has been receiving heavy backlash from the community not only for his financially irresponsible actions that some call criminal, but also for evading arrest. At this point, much of the community appears to want the former FTX CEO behind bars. However, a political angle also sprung up amid this chaos when the news of Bankman-Fried having donated to President Biden’s campaign came to light.
Interestingly, Bankman-Fried also stated through a Twitter post that he will be speaking with The New York Times journalist Andrew Sorkin at the DealBook Summit next week. Sorkin confirmed the news arguing that there were a lot of important questions that needed to be asked and answered.
