No input from CEO

Ellison’s last Twitter update on Alameda’s balance sheet came before the announcement of the Binance acquisition.CEO said The company has “>$10 billion in assets” and has “paid off most of its loans to date.”

The tweets paint a different picture than what unfolded on FTX over the next 24 hours. Interestingly, SBF deleted Ellison’s tweet, “FTX is fine,” published around the same time. However, a post from Ellison who commented that he was “busy right now” in a reply to ByBit co-founder Ben Zhou on BitDAO has not been deleted.

Ellison has answered some questions about FTX-linked wallets and refused to dump BitDAO tokens, but has not addressed the internal situation at this time.

Poor communication at FTX/Alameda

Trabucco recently said just hours before FTX announced the liquidity crisis that caused it to seek help from Binance, saying, “It’s ridiculous that people instantly believe 100% of every crappy ‘news’ story they see.” As the industry awaits further information, the apparent lack of awareness among key team members and advisors regarding the scale of the FTX problem is very worrying.

There are currently rumors about the size and extent of the ‘hole’ in FTX’s balance sheet, but no transparent reports have indicated the root cause of the problem.
