As in the Ross Ulbricht case (who is serving life in prison), prosecutors want 50 years for Sam Bankman-Fried

By SNN.BZ Staff

Sam Bankman-Fried was sentenced to 25 years. The financial leaders who once championed traditional currency and expressed skepticism about cryptocurrency are now at the forefront of institutions that have embraced Bitcoin, recognize its value and potential in the evolving economic landscape and will stop at nothing to horde more and more of it.

Being in the autism spectrum, has always gotten him a bit of mercy but it did not help him in sentencing. He has never been contrite or remorseful about his actions. Since the trial began, SBF has never apologized to anyone for anything.

Those that testified against him, including Caroline Ellison testified that he knew exactly what he was doing and that his priority was amassing as much money as he could in order to provide it to politicians for their political campaigns. His goal was wealth an power.

The American politicians that received the cryptocurrency as cash, they have not returned it nor have they identified themselves.

Unfortunately for Sam Bankman-Fried, a notable figure in the cryptocurrency realm, who has displayed a blend of youthful exuberance and remarkable technical acumen, acting like a kid did not help him escape sentencing.

It would be a good idea if his family would get involved in rectifying the matter, potentially through the return of significant real estate holdings.

Such actions could set a precedent for accountability and serve as a lesson in responsibility for current and future generations.
