The U.S. Government officially seized FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried‘s (SBF) Robinhood shares, which equates to $455 million, as reported by WatcherGuru.
SBF acquired 7.6% of Robinhood for $648.3 million on May 13, 2022. After the FTX crash on Jan. 4, the U.S. Department of Justice revealed that it would take control of Robinhood shares under dispute by all FTX-related parties.
Upon this news, FTX and Alameda Research attempted to secure their ownership of Robinhood shares by filing legal requests on Jan. 5, claiming that the bankrupt exchange has no “legal claims” over the assets in question.
