SBF later tweeted important details about the recent FTX-Alameda collapse, but his eccentric way of tweeting important details about FTX has drawn severe and intense criticism from former FTX users and crypto investors.

On November 15, SBF continued to tweet about how Alameda had more assets than liabilities and that FTX US had sufficient funds to repay all customers.

From SBF:

To the best of my knowledge, as of post-11/7, with the potential for errors: Alameda had more assets than liabilities M2M but not liquid! Alameda had margin position on FTX Int. FTX US had enough to repay all customers. Not everyone necessarily agrees with this."

Twitter users have called SBF out for treating the FTX collapse as a joke. Users were also quick to label SBF's recent "tweet storm" as juvenile and disrespectful.

One Twitter user dubbed SBF a scammer who stole people's money. Another tweeted that SBF's idea of repaying customer funds sounds incredibly irrational and foolish.

Many called out SBF and proclaimed that he should be sent to jail for how FTX treated user's funds on the FTX platform.

The FTX-Alameda debacle has attracted global scrutiny

The collapse of FTX has reportedly resulted in the loss of billions of dollars and bankrupted multiple companies associated with FTX, including BlockFi.

In a statement issued by the Royal Bahamas Police, authorities confirmed that they have launched an investigation against FTX to assess the level of criminal misconduct and injustice that went on behind the scenes.
