Burgersburg explains to host Matt Binder his recent investigations into SBF's interesting ties with Celsius Network, the failed crypto lender, how FTX propped up Celsius and its CEL token, how Celsius paid FTX with users' assets even after it supposedly froze all of their funds, FTX's own stablecoin FTT, SBF's prominence as the guy who shows up to bailout failing crypto companies, and his report into Alameda and how SBF's entire empire may vey well be insolvent.
