The most influential people TOP10

SBF said in an interview with "CoinDesk" that due to the explosion of the crypto market, more and more institutions are entering the blockchain field. Unless the market deteriorates in the future, this trend will continue. It is worth noting that the rapid growth of FTX this year has also led the outside world to believe that if the crypto market reverses, it will affect FTX.

In this regard, SBF stated that FTX's partnership, naming, endorsement and other agreements only account for less than 10% of its annual revenue, so even if the market reverses, FTX will not be affected. Of course, if Bitcoin falls below $20,000, FTX's profitability may be affected, but it is unlikely that it will fall to make FTX appear negative. Even if Bitcoin enters a bear market for a long time, a new round of funds raised of 420 million U.S. dollars also provides a funding firewall.
