Why'd he do it?

Doesn't seem like he was ever going to get away with this.

>> No.53026597

Maybe he thought that because crypto is unregulated then he wouldn't get audited if he didn't live in the US. He's not a lawyer. He might have also thought that if he put on his "kid in over his head" face on (like he's doing in the press photos) he would get a lighter sentence.

The whole thing banks on the idea that white collar crime isn't severe and so he wouldn't go to jail for a long time if he were caught. Pretty much I just think he was ignorant of the law. Like he probably knew he was doing something illegal. People like this just believe they exist in some bubble outside of the law.

As much as I love conspiracy theories, I think this case is a classic example of the Warren Buffett quote: "Only when the tide goes out do you discover who's been swimming naked".

This kid made a bunch of risky bets with other people's money, and as long as the market kept going up he looked like a genius. Market crashes and boom, all the money is gone. There is no way the he, having literally grown up at the Stanford law school, did not know what he was doing was illegal. His girlfriend has already turned on him, he has no hope winning a trial even with a $500m legal team. Good news is, with the First Step Act he will end up serving less then 10 years at a camp, afterwards getting to keep more money than most make in their lifetimes. Shalom.

He thought he could get away with it because:

1. He donated a fuckton to politics (may still work out for him in the end, let's not count our chickens before they hatch, he already got out on bail which will buy him years of his life back as his legal team fights tooth and nail to extend the trail)

2. He was on so much meth and amphetamines that his ego was off the charts and he thought he was 7D chessmaster

3. He gave Alameda godmode on his exchange - they had access to unlimited credit, access to all the trading info on FTX as well as the ability to frontrun those trades, had NO liquidation mechanic on FTX implimented, etc. So theoretically there was no way they could lose, a literal retarded monkey throwing darts would have been able to run it and profited.

His mistake was putting someone even more retarded than a braindead monkey, yet with an even larger ego than him due to rich parents keeping her in a bubble and too many Twilight novels growing up, in charge. Unlike a braindead retarded monkey who's just neutrally throwing darts without any clue of what the fuck they are doing, she tried larping as

> "I'm the smartest most prettiest most perfectest princess with a harem in the world and everyone will grovel before my feet and become my slave because I am the greatest"

So rather than just mindlessly making plays, she actively made plays on "superior intellect" which was literally picking out the worst possible plays intentionally with the assumption that they were right. Sam had to double, triple, quadruple down on fixing her mistakes.

I'm sure the plan was "we found a free infinite money hack, just play it safe" but Caroline the fuckslut retard wanted to prove she's the best in the world and blew it all up. She had him by the balls - his only move was to keep filling the holes she was making in hopes that it sorts itself out with time. He couldn't just fire her because she'd rat. And in the end, she did just that, and now she's free.

I have this theory that people like this think they're really good at lying because they can lie to their parents
A lot of parents, especially well off families, let their kid lie and get away with it
This creates an alternate reality for the kid where they can always get away with lying, until eventually they try it in the real world and get fucked
You can tell when he does interviews he lies in a way that probably works on upperclass parents

Yeah, this goes hand and hand with the fact that during his Bahamas court hearing his dad was literally plugging his ears (literally literally, physically fingers in ears) and his mom was laughing every time the word "fugitive" came out the judge's mouth. His parents would never believe their sweet little angel would ever do anything wrong. He could probably shit in the sink right in front of them and say a dog broke into the house and did it, and they would believe him.
