- This is the legendary art museum in New York’s Central Park.
- He refused the “dirty” money of the crypto exchange
Metropolitan Museum agreed return more than half a million dollars received from FTX in the form of donations. This is evidenced by court documents and an agreement between the parties.
Donations were made during the “reign” of Sam Bankman-Freed and before the bankruptcy of the platform. They were not transferred directly, but through a subsidiary of West Realm Shires Services. The firm first sent the museum $300,000 (last March) and then another $250,000 in May. Now this money will go to the new management of FTX.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is located in the legendary Central Park of New York. This is one of the leading art museums in the world. Taking care of its reputation, the institution decided to get rid of scandalous money. $550,000 will now go to FTX Debtors accounts. This means that they can be spent on payments to platform clients.
Earlier, other organizations began to return the “dirty” money of the exchange. So, the University of Toronto transferred almost $500,000. And the Building a Stronger Future family fund – as much as $1.6 million.
The Bankman-Fried Company has been very generous with donations. They especially liked to sponsor political forces. The court will deal with this issue separately.
By the way, Kennedy Jr. will accept donations in BTC during the new presidential race.
