39: FTX Conspiracies About Ukraine & Democrats Don't Add Up (w/ Sergey Vasylchuk)
November 21, 2022
Sergey Vasylchuk of Aid For Ukraine and CEO of Ukrainian crypto company Everstake joins Scam Economy with Matt Binder to explain why the conspiracy theories being spread by right wing media outlets and influencers about FTX and its ties to Ukraine aid and the Democratic Party don't make sense. Vasylchuk takes us inside the founding of Aid for Ukraine, the crypto donation program run in tandem with the Ukraine government's Ministry of Digital Transformation, the extent of the partnership with FTX and its founder Sam Bankman-Fried, and more. Matt explains why the conspiracy is spreading and breaks down specific pieces of the conspiracy theory and finds zero evidence to back up the claims.
