Our thoughts on FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried and where to from here for crypto | Coinspot

A stack of high profile celebrities and venture capitalists have lost money from FTX fall-out with an estimated $32b valuation now up in smoke!

In today's episode, Bryce & Alec are joined by Darcy to discuss some of the details around what we know (and what is speculated) around the goings-on of Sam Bankman-Fried and his posse of directors and executives in the Bahamas.

But more importantly, as investors, the lads discuss how you can approach investing in crypto currency and some of the things you should look and think about when it comes to exchanges and your crypto security. Darcy explains 'cold storage' and we wrap it with a crypto focussed Alec Book Bonanza.
