Somebody mentioned this story the other day so I am posting it for them. I don’t really understand it myself.

There was a diagram on Twitter use to illustrate the scam. I changed the diagram and wording for better clarity.
Let’s start with Joe Biden in the top left:
The Principles in this affair are Joe Biden and the Democratic Congress, CEO Sam Bankman-Fried of the company FTX, the Government of Ukraine, the Democratic Party
To further complicate matters, the company FTX was being legitimized by other financial institutions who were members of Sam Bankman-Fried’s family, i.e. the World Economic Forum
This is a big mess. People who once owned cryptocurrency are now out of billions. FTX is filling bankruptcy, which means all transactions, communications, and other records are going to be reviewed by governments, attached corporations and any group with financial ties. At this moment, I am sure documents are being shredded and computers are being wiped clean to avoid legal entanglements.
Most of all, if there is a connection made from FTX, Ukraine, Democratic Party to Joe Biden, it will be an impeachable offense.

I understand corruption but I don’t really understand cryptocurrency.

Most countries are currencies are based on precious metals such as gold. The United Kingdom’s currency is based on the crown jewels.
United States is a fiat currency based on its economy.
Cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin was started on a mathematical formula, but mostly based on trust.

The Ukrainian government mysteriously disappeared online records of its fundraising arrangement with the FTX crypto scam just days before the scandal erupted. The initiative claims to have raised $60 million for Ukraine, but where did the money go?
by Kit Klarenberg
The demise of FTX, the fifth-biggest cryptocurrency exchange by trade volume in 2022, and the second-largest by holdings, has sent a wave of chaos through global financial markets.
As the turbulence grows, the government of Ukraine is conducting an ongoing cleanup and whitewashing operation to rid any and all references to a high-level cryptocurrency fundraising arrangement it struck with FTX from the web. Eerily, it seems to have commenced just days before the scandal erupted.
Online records unearthed by The Grayzone claim tens of millions were raised by FTX for the Ukrainian government, and put to a variety of belligerent uses. But with the company now exposed as a Potemkin village lacking underlying assets, and major question marks hanging over whether its operations were from day one fraudulent top to bottom, where does that leave the supposedly successful donation scheme? Were those sums truly raised, and if so, to what purposes were they actually put?
FTX’s destruction resulted from a mass sell-off of the company’s native bitcoin token, FTT, by the rival exchange, Binance. Its value plummeted, prompting a three-day “run” on billions of dollars worth of cryptocurrency, which in turn created – or exposed – a “liquidity crisis” within FTX, as it did not have the available assets required to redeem client withdrawals. FTX filed for bankruptcy on November 11th.
Unfortunately, this piece asks more questions than it provides answers. All that can be said about the clammily is there are going to be a lot of unanswered questions for years to come. By the way, do not expect CBS’s 60 Minutes to come to the rescue on this matter. The last time CBS was critical of Ukraine, they got their asses handed to them.

So I guess that means the Republican controlled House will take a hands-off approach to this. lol
Sam Bankman-Fried would never willingly testify without immunity, but some people are going to be expected to testify, or face criminal referrals, and that immediately has me thinking of the TV show VEEP where “corpse f*****g” got explained.
Keep hitting “NEXT CLIP” to get the full scene, and imo it’s worth the effort.

IMO and all that.
America is not a country, it's just a business. (Brad Pitt, Killing Them Softly)
"Sometimes when I try to understand a person's motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?'" GRRM
A YouTube comment – we need new conspiracy theories – the old ones have all come true.
