Nishad Singh and Sam Bankman were roommates:
Nishad Singh was reportedly Sam Bankman’s roommate, as stated in an article that was published by CoinDesk on Friday. A source who didn’t want to be named told CoinDesk that Nishad, FTX’s chief technology officer (CTO), Gary Wang, and Sam Bankman-Fried were in charge of the exchange’s code, matching engine, and finances.
The cryptocurrency trading company FTX has filed for bankruptcy, and Sam Bankman-Fried, the company’s former chief executive officer (CEO), has left his job. On Friday, sources who are familiar with the situation informed the news agency Reuters that Bankman-Fried illegally moved $10 billion of client funds from FTX to his trading business, Alameda Research.
In addition to Bankman-Fried, additional FTX workers who were a part of his inner circle have been investigated for financial practices that contributed to the failure of the cryptocurrency trading business. These employees were involved in the activities that led to the collapse of the company. Nishad Singh, who is of Indian descent and formerly worked for FTX as the Director of Engineering, is one of the personnel that are part of the inner circle at Bankman-Fried.
