Is This FTX Math?

November 21, 2022

I recall hearing or reading that the top dog of Aurora, the FTX affiliated entity, thought that running a crypto outfit required basic math skills. I read “FTX Owes more than $3 Billion to Top 50 Crypto Creditors.” The write up points out:

Roughly 1 million customers unable to withdraw funds from crypto currency exchange

Okay, let’s do some modern day basic math. Follow along:

  • 50 kind hearted and understanding creditors
  • $3 billion in US dollars or a suitable equivalent like Teslas or designer bags
  • One Enron experienced super manager.

Now the math:

50 times $3 billion equals 20 years

I will get a middle school student to check my math. I may be off a few years with the prison sum.
