The FTX CEO’s words came true, as more companies with financial issues followed the problems customers were having with Celsius freezing withdrawals. Celsius eventually filed for bankruptcy protection alongside Three Arrows Capital, in Voyager Digital.

On July 22, Bankman-Fried tweeted out a statement that explains FTX is willing to help Voyager’s customers. “Happy to do what we can to get liquidity to Voyager’s customers,” Bankman-Fried rekel in his tweet. A press release shared by Bankman-Fried notes that FTX announced a joint offer with West Realm Shires Inc., the owner and operator of FTX US, and Alameda Ventures. The company plans to “provide early liquidity to customers of Voyager.” Bankman-Fried said he wanted to offer a better way to help customers get liquidity.

The FTX CEO said:

Voyager’s customers did not choose to be bankruptcy investors holding unsecured claims. The goal of our joint proposal is to help establish a better way to resolve an insolvent crypto business – a way that allows customers to obtain early liquidity and reclaim a portion of their assets without forcing them to speculate on bankruptcy outcomes and take one-sided risks.

On July 22, Bankman-Fried did an interview for CNBC’s “Closing Bell,” and said FTX was willing to deploy “hundreds of millions beyond what we have thus far” to crypto firms suffering from the downturn. Bankman-Fried further said that he would love to see more people stepping in to “[provide] capital to those in need.” The news follows the FTX CEO explaining that the company was ready to spend billions on mergers and acquisition deals at the end of May.

The FTX CEO also talked about cryptocurrency markets and noted that he believes crypto regulations will rise in the near future. The interview with Bankman-Fried also touched upon the cryptocurrency insider trading case launched by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Following the interview, the founder of Shapeshift, Erik Voorhees tvitnil about Bankman-Fried’s recent regulation statements the CEO of FTX shared on Twitter.

In one specific tweet, Bankman-Fried said: “In the end, I want federal oversight of crypto one way or another.” Voorhees remarked that Bankman-Fried’s oversight comment was “the way toward crypto becoming banking 2.0, instead of an actual meaningful change in how money and finance work.”

“If you care about improving the world with this tech, please avoid this impetus,” Voorhees added. You’ve already built an impressive crypto empire [Sam Bankman-Fried]. Please use it for good, and not to entangle us back into the legacy system that is so deeply corrupted and perverse.”
