American View of Crypto is Damaged

The year has been a tough one for the crypto industry. Moreover, the past month has been riddled with collapse and near devastation. Various platforms are seemingly on the brink, triggered by the bankruptcy of prominent cryptocurrency exchange, FTX

It wasn’t just the failure of the company, however, that instrumented its collapse. The downfall of FTX was brought on by the misuse of customer funds and criminal acts by its founder and former CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried.
