A photo shared by a Twitter user is circulating in the crypto community. Many people close to this matter confirmed that she was the former CEO of Alameda Research.
Alameda Research is a bankrupt crypto company, which was providing services for institutional crypto investors. Allegaly the team from Alameda Research transferred funds from the FTX exchange to survive its critical financial situation but later a situation made FTX, Alameda Research & more than 100 of its affiliated companies bankrupt. FTX announced on 12 November about its bankruptcy filing publicly.
On 4 December, A Twitter user, who is a crypto journalist, shared two pictures of former Alameda Research CEO Caroline Ellison. In the shared pic, Caroline was ordering coffee
Twitter user said that the lady in the pic was Caroline, which means she is not in Hong Kong but in New York.
One of the workers working at that coffee shop confirmed that he works there & a staff member served the coffee to Alameda’s ex-CEO.
Earlier this, a few reports claimed that Caroline was planning to flee to Dubai to remain away from any kind of enforcement action.
In the present time, Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), founder & former CEO of FTX crypto exchange, is appearing in different media interviews to share his personal opinion and trying to claim that the bankruptcy of FTX & and its all affiliated companies happened because of the bad leadership of Alameda team.
Yesterday, in an interview, SBF said that while he was 90% owner of Alameda Research but he was not close to this company, instead he was much busy at the FTX exchange, and also he was not willing to interfere in Alameda’ services because of the conflict of interest.
