FTX backtracks on FDIC insurance but fails to delete all references

Following a request from the FDIC to stop making misleading statements about FTX insurance, FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried turned to Twitter for crisis management. The SBF said the message was “confusing” regarding the actions FTX has taken to distance itself from protocols that may not comply with US sanctions.

The confusion was caused by FTX allegedly freezing user accounts for interacting with the Aztec Network. This seems to think the protocol may be targeted by OFAC. SBF’s remarks came after the company’s president, Brett Harrison, deleted a tweet at his FDIC’s direction on a busy night at FTX.more Harrison said That FTX “didn’t mean to mislead anyone”.

However, Harrison did not remove all references to FDIC insurance. Tweet I will clarify below. It’s unclear if the tweet was intentionally left by the FDIC and FTX or simply missed.
