Success came to Bankman-Fried quite quickly. He founded FTX just 2.5 years ago and grew it into one of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchanges.

Bankman-Fried was born into a family whose parents were professors at Stanford Law School. He himself graduated from the MIT Institute of Technology, majoring in physics, and wanted to pursue an academic career.

However, during his three years as a teller at Jane Street, a Wall Street financial institution, he developed models to analyze returns on individual donations. In 2017, Bankman-Fried decided to become a crypto trader at Alemeda Research after seeing an opportunity in this new market. By 2019, Bankman-Fried established FTX.

“At first I didn’t know anything about cryptocurrencies, didn’t even understand what blockchain was. However, when I got into it, I got into it pretty quickly,” Bankman-Fried recalls.
